RUSH: Now back to the audio sound bites, ladies and gentlemen. Mrs. Clinton. Howard Dean said — we had the audio earlier — the way to avoid all of this chaos is just end this. Howard Dean said, ‘We can’t go to the convention like this. We cannot go to the convention without a nominee.’ So on Good Morning America today on ABC, the cohost Chris Cuomo interviewed Hillary, and he said, ‘If you go to the convention, good for the Democrats, bad for the Democrats?’ meaning if she goes, without having conceded?

HILLARY: Well, it would be, uh, a real convention, unlike what we’ve had for recent conventions where the decisions were already known before people ever showed up. You know, this would be why you elect delegates. We come out with a nominee, with a unified party and take off from there.

RUSH: Ha! We hope for that. We hope that she gets exactly what she wants. We hope that they get a convention with all these battles. But the idea they’re going to come out of there unified? It’s only April 22nd. Their convention is — May, June, July, August — four months away! Can you imagine four more months of this kind of chaos? Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we can make this happen. If we hang together — and if we do the right thing, if we do the right stuff — we can keep this going. Yes, we can. Si se puede! Yes, we can keep this going — and Obama is in the middle of falling apart right now. He really is, folks. They’re trying to cover this up. Look, Hillary is going to have to win this. So I don’t want to you to be worried about sustaining this through the convention. She’s going to have to win in landslide proportions to even have a chance at changing the minds of the superdelegates. The odds that she’s going to win landslide proportions — she may win big today. We don’t really know in Pennsylvania. However, in North Carolina, there are a lot of people who think…

You know, everybody is all excited here about what’s happening in Pennsylvania, but North Carolina is really the key to this. I find it interesting that the people say the next state is always the key. But some learned political scientists in North Carolina say North Carolina really is the do-or-die state for Mrs. Clinton because Obama is up. Obama’s polling is way up there. If she can pare that down — if she could tie Obama in North Carolina after he’s had this double-digit lead for all this time; if she could eke out a win — we’re talking momentum here; and what it would represent is that the bloom is off the rose of the messianic Barack Obama. So there’s a lot here that can still happen, ladies and gentlemen, and Operation Chaos is at the center of all of this. So here’s Mrs. Clinton suggesting, ‘No, I want to go to the convention. That’s what conventions are for,’ and then on the Today Show today, she’s making the rounds, Ann Curry. Do you feel the playing field has not been level because you are a woman?

HILLARY: It is like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. You know, I have to do everything Fred does only backwards and in high heels. The most pervasive form of discrimination in the world — no matter what the ethnicity, the race, the religion of people who live in any society — is discrimination against women.

RUSH: (groans) Oh, man. She was on such a roll and then she has to resort to playing the victim card again. She hasn’t had on a pair of high heels since Gennifer Flowers was hosting Bill Clinton in her trailer back in Little Rock. She hasn’t had on a pair of high heels in 25 years. Have you seen her in high heels anywhere? I mean, even at the White House in these formal balls and gowns, got a floor length dress, do you think she’s wearing high he’s like under that? Ha-ha-ha. I shouldn’t say this so I won’t say what I was going — (interruption) Nope, nope, I’m not going to. (Whispers: There isn’t a pair made that would work.) Anyway, the sympathy card, here. ‘The most rampant form of discrimination in any society is discrimination against women.’ I hope our EIB brothers and sisters in the hood heard that sound bite from Mrs. Clinton. Play this again. This is audio sound bite number 12, Ann Curry of the Today Show, says, ‘Do you feel the playing field has not been level because you are a woman?’

HILLARY: It is like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. You know, I have to do everything Fred does only backwards and in high heels. The most pervasive form of discrimination in the world — no matter what the ethnicity, the race, the religion of people who live in any society — is discrimination against women.

RUSH: (sigh) Neither of these two are sounding presidential. They’re both portraying themselves as victims, and, ‘Gee, they’re victims of unfairness and mean-spirited people, racists and sexists and so forth and so on.’ She then went over to CBS to the Early Show. Harry Smith interviewed her. His question was this: ‘Senator Obama says that your basic view about this election is say anything, do anything; special interest driven. Elect her because she’s been in Washington longer and knows how to play the game.’

HILLARY: (cackle) Yeah, I’ve heard him say that quite a bit. Now, hmm! It sounds a little negative to me. (cackle) Look, he has every right to say whatever he’s going to say in his campaign. But I don’t think that’s what people want to hear. What people want to hear —

SMITH: But the argument is, status quo versus —

HILLARY: Well, but —

SMITH: — something else.

HILLARY: You know, I represent the most significant change you could have. A woman president? This is earth shaking!

RUSH: And so here we have it once again, identity politics reigns supreme. She would be ‘earth shaking’ because she’s a woman. So in our sound bite today of Mrs. Clinton we’ve had the screech, which we haven’t heard in months from Mrs. Clinton. We heard the cackle here twice in one sound bite. We haven’t heard the cackle in a couple of months, maybe three. That cackle, by the way, there’s a species in Arkansas that makes the same noise. It’s called the Arkansas Broadbeam, and it makes a very similar sounding noise. So she’s cackled twice. She has had the screech — you know, your ex-wife, two ex-wives screech — and now the whine. She’s whined here (w-h-i-n-e-d) in two separate sound bites.
