####### Morris, the political columnist who formerly advised President Bill Clinton, ... thinks Hillary Clinton is a Nixon-like character who "lies about everything."


Regarding Democrats in the hunt for the White House, Morris continued his attack on Sen. Clinton.

"I think Hillary is very likely to win the presidency and I don't think she should," he said. "Hillary is a Nixonian, she has an enemies list a mile long and I think if she controlled the FBI and the CIA and the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Homeland Security people, wiretapping, I think she could be a very dangerous president. I think she could remind me of Nixon."

Morris explained that Bill Clinton possesses instant likability, but Mrs. Clinton does not share that trait.

"Bill is effortlessly charismatic. He walks into a room and everybody loves him. She knows she's not, so she has to kind of pretend she's something she's not to make up for that, so that people will relate to her. And her entire presentation is phony, anybody can see that and there is – you know – Bill lies about sex, Hillary lies about everything."

Morris pointed out a simple example of Hillary making up a story about the terror attacks on New York in September 2001.

She said that Chelsea, her daughter, was jogging around the towers of the World Trade Center on 9/11 and [Hillary] went on the "Today" show ... and she said [Chelsea] was only saved because she ducked into a coffee shop at the last minute and she actually heard the airplane hit the building. And the announcer ... Katie Couric, introduced her and said, "On 9/11, Mrs. Clinton was not just a senator, she was a concerned parent."

Chelsea wrote an article four months later that said she was home in bed asleep [on 9/11] and a friend called her and said, "Wake up and turn on the TV," and she turned it on and saw the plane hit. She was five miles from Ground Zero, nowhere near there. Why did Hillary make up this story?

Morris then provided a laundry list of ethical problems associated with the former first lady:

* "She took $1,000 and with the help of her friends, who Bill was helping to safeguard against inspections for the poultry industry, parlayed it in a matter of weeks on the futures market and then wouldn't release her tax returns, so nobody knew about it until after the statute of limitations was lifted.

* She told a federal grand jury that she didn't work on a certain project in the Whitewater scandal, when she did, and she claimed she didn't know it by that name but another name. ...

* Her brother was paid $300,000 by a drug and crack cocaine dealer, who was serving a 20 year sentence in prison and her husband pardoned him, and she claimed she had no idea her brother was representing the guy.

* She arranged a party for the head of the Orthodox Jewish community in one area, and that district voted for her by 1,400 to three, whereas previously it had been Republican and the leaders of the community walked out of jail shortly after the election.

* She was fined $35,000 by the Federal Elections Commission for one of the largest campaign violations on record, claiming that she didn't know that a fundraiser cost $1.2 million instead of $300,000, that enabled her to spend that extra money on her Senate campaign."

While Morris lashed into Sen. Clinton, he did have words of praise for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, whom Morris thinks would be an excellent challenger to Hillary.

You start with the fact that they're totally different models of feminism. Hillary got ahead because her husband was president. Is there anybody in the world who thinks Hillary would be running for president now if her husband hadn't been president? There was no way she would have got elected to the Senate in a state she never lived in, with no primary, and won that seat overwhelmingly if it weren't for the fact that her husband were the chief executive.

Condi has made it entirely on her own. She started in a ghetto in Birmingham, Alabama. Her best friend was killed in the Birmingham church bombing that was the most violent act of the entire civil rights era. She recalls going to the funeral and seeing the little coffins. She got a Ph.D on her own, rose up from some of our most prestigious schools, Notre Dame and the University of Colorado. She became the provost at Stanford University, one of our top 10 schools, the chief academic officer when she was in her late 30s, became fluent in Russian and French, she speaks the language of both of America's adversaries and she became really - educated herself as a foreign policy expert.
