Durst: Hillary vs. Liddy

I'll be honest. I like Hillary Clinton. Of course, as you probably all know, headbands make me hot. I think her biggest problem besides Al D'Amato being a liquid squeezebag of the ninth order, is that she refuses to impersonate Barbara Bush. Babs looked like not only could she make chicken soup for the entire country, she was willing to take responsibility for making sure each and every one of us finished it. Hillary looks more like an overly motivated substitute teacher. The kind that not only had pinpointed our place in the lesson plan, but actually called out Dick Hertz's name in attendance even though she knew.Liddy Dole, on the other hand, is just plain scary. If "Picture Perfect" were an electorate, she'd be Artist In Residence. I'm betting either she was prototype for the Stepford Wife, or called in as a design consultant. Nancy Reagan without the soul. What flips me out is even though both of these women are Ivy League Lawyers, Hillary is the only one accused of being a radical feminist. Which means what? She had a job? Be fair, Marilyn Quayle had a job too, she just quit it to stay home and raise her husband.
