Well, yes it does. Was this for Halloween? Was it an ironic statement? Was it for effect? I have a "Nixon's the One" bumper sticker on my '73 Jensen Healey bumper purely for shits and giggles. I'd wear that tee or one for Cruz on Jan 20, 2017 when either Hillary or Bernie is sworn just to gig RW idiots. Course I'd tie, reduce and over dye it first. But that's just me.
If that picture signifies anything at all, this one means more, right?
Hillary Worked for Goldwater?
By Brooks Jackson
Posted on March 27, 2008
Q: Did Hillary Clinton work for Goldwater?
A: She was a high-school Young Republican and "Goldwater Girl" in 1964 but swung to supporting Democrat Eugene McCarthy’s campaign in 1968 and George McGovern’s in 1972.
Hillary Clinton ("Living History," page 21): I was also an active Young Republican and, later, a Goldwater girl, right down to my cowgirl outfit and straw cowboy hat emblazoned with the slogan "AuH20." … I liked Senator Goldwater because he was a rugged individualist who swam against the political tide.
SCOTT SIMON, HOST:
There's a clip of a Hillary Clinton interview making the rounds on the Internet. Let's hear.
(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED BROADCAST)
SIMON: I mean, did you ever, back in the '60s, between when, I believe, you were Goldwater Girl and...
HILLARY CLINTON: That's right.
SIMON: ...Whatever you became politically?
CLINTON: That's right. And I feel like my political beliefs are rooted in the conservatism that I was raised with.
SIMON: Hey, I know that interviewer. Hillary Clinton was in the White House, married to President Clinton and promoting her book, "It Takes A Village." That clip's gaining renewed attention because, of course, Barry Goldwater was a Republican known as Mr. Conservative. The Internet is abuzz with people who charge this exchange demonstrates something about Hillary Clinton. NPR's Tamara Keith is covering the entire 2016 presidential campaign. She heard the entire interview this week - bless her - joins us in the studios. Thanks, Tam, that must have been painful.
