The Company She Keeps

I mean this as a sincere and direct challenge to every supporter of Sen. Rodham's bid for the presidency: How can you possibly support this person to be President Of The United States?

Mrs. Clinton was waiting to speak at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Iraq when the time for her appointment with Mr. Sharpton came and went. So one of her aides escorted Mr. Sharpton to an office near the hearing room, and Mrs. Clinton left the discussion about troop levels in Baghdad to meet him.
Mr. Sharpton and Mrs. Clinton met behind closed doors for 15 minutes, then merged with big smiles. Mrs. Clinton seemed surprised to see a dozen reporters waiting; Mr. Sharpton had sent out two news releases, one at 2 a.m. on Thursday, with his itinerary.
“I’m delighted that Reverend Sharpton is here today to talk about issues that are important to our country,” Mrs. Clinton said as they stood in a Senate hallway. “His commitment to the 21st-century civil rights agenda is one that I share.”

He's an anti-semitic, race-baiting thug who incited murder at least once and still owes millions in court judgments after falsely trashing an innocent man in the Tawana Brawley fiasco. He supports race-based government policies including reparations. And she's PROUD?

Isn't that a disqualifier for president on its face?
