Hell Freezes Over

It's getting chilly down here.

Sen. Hillary Clinton and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich teaming up to press the issue of health care in America? Someone pick my jaw up off the floor. These two self-important potential presidential contenders in 2008 share a microphone to push for health care changes? Didn't Newt call the Clinton health plan in 1993 too radical? And now she makes a lot of sense to him? Is Hillary adding more conservative clothes to her political wardrobe to broaden her appeal? Of course. Does this confirm the thesis that Hilary works better with adulterous elected officials than those who value fidelity? Will there be an Oprah-like hug for closure between these two annoying political figures? I'll keep watching CNN to find out.

I guess I'm still not used to politics where former bitter opponents emerge from a room and say, "oh, we're really friends, I respect their beliefs, we can work together on this, blah, blah, blah." I'm sure it won't be long to find out the plan will favor their business friends, relatives, donors or all three.
