    Read the comments below the story...I think she's going to be shocked how many people don't buy into her BS.

    I don't know, some of the comments were, you know, kinda stupid.

    Even with as much tampering as was done by Shrub empathizers in Florida, Ohio, etc., the raw popular vote in 2000 remains firmly at odds with that assertion.

    To be fair to Hillary, the headline on that story is misleading. The point of what she was saying was that we need to approach weaning ourselves from foreign oil independent of gas prices. She didn't appear to be making a campaign promise that she would get gas prices dropped.

    God, I hated typing that.

    It'll be enough when folks quit referring to a Supreme Court appointment as a legitimate election result . . . especially given the disastrous subsequent consequences.

    Until then . . .

    I disagree, Zeke, she is making a promise that can't possibly be kept.

    There was no "promise," mark. Read what she said:

    "I predict to you, the oil-producing countries will drop the price of oil," Clinton said, speaking at the Manchester YWCA. "They will once again assume, once the cost pressure is off, Americans and our political process will recede."

    She goes on to say that it would be foolish to back off a commitment to lowering our oil usage just because prices fall, for any reason.

    That isn't a campaign promise, and the headline writer should be ashamed of the way he framed it. It being the Daily News, I won't hold my breath.

    There are plenty of reasons not to support Hillary as a candidate. This isn't one of them.
