Office Politics

New York's First Lady?

Hillary Clinton will give "careful thought" to campaigning for Senator Moynihan's seat, according to last week's news reports. Run, Rudy, run.

Do you think Hillary would be a good senator?Yeah. You know she's already a savvy politician.

Would you vote for her?In a second.

Why does America like her better now?We know her a little better. More people respect her for being graceful under very difficult circumstances.

Who else for Senate?Giuliani, Sharpton, no way.

Do you think Hillary would be a good senator?Don't know anything about her political background.

Would you vote for her?If you're asking the question today, no.

Why does America like her better now?That she had a certain amount of fortitude standing behind Clinton with this mess.

Who else for Senate?If it's between Clinton and Giuliani, I'd go with Giuliani.

Do you think Hillary would be a good senator?Sure.

Would you vote for her? I will.

Why does America like her better now?Behind every good man is a great woman.

Who else for Senate?I prefer her over anybody else right now. But maybe Al Sharpton.

Occupation: Retired

Do you think Hillary would be a good senator?I don't think she's a good first lady. She's simply out for herself and her husband. It's like every time they get on Air Force One they've got their back turned to the cameras as if to say, "Kiss our ass."

Would you vote for her?No.

Why does America like her better now?Who says America likes her? No one ever polled me. Someone had the nerve to say to me once that she's like Eleanor Roosevelt!

Who else for Senate?I don't even want Giuliani. This is not really a democracy. You get two bad choices.

Occupation: Pediatric nurse

Do you think Hillary would be a good senator?Yeah. It's time for a woman. She's also someone who thinks about minorities. Because that awful guy, who's name I forget, who's mayor of this city, doesn't care about us.

Would you vote for her?Of course.

Why does America like her better now?She's a stand-by-your-man type. America likes that.

Who else for Senate?No one else.

Resides: Flatbush
Occupation: Grad student

Do you think Hillary would be a good senator?The only way she could be a good candidate is if she had residency.

Would you vote for her?It's a possibility.

Why does America like her better now?She represents the new woman— she stands by her man but is still independent.

Who else for Senate?Of all the possible front-runners, Hillary. Sharpton is better at the grassroots level.

Occupation: Temp

Do you think Hillary would be a good senator?Relative to her potential running mates, yes. Above all she seems to have morals and ethics. But I said "seems."

Would you vote for her?Yes.

Why does America like her better now?She put up with her husband's shit.

Who else for Senate?I don't know. I'm a Jew, so not Al Sharpton. Also, I like Giuliani, but I'm not sure.

Occupation: Drug and alcohol counselor

Do you think Hillary would be a good senator?She has the qualifications but I have a problem with that I don't ever remember her being in this state.

Would you vote for her?Probably, since I'm a Democrat. In a way, I guess, Bill Clinton is trying to expand his office. Which doesn't bother me.

Why does America like her better now? Americans like someone who is a victim.

Who else for Senate?Carl McCall. If Al Sharpton ran, I guess I'd be for him too.
