Day 1 Sauce

So Hillary claims she is the candidate ready for the presidency on "Day One."

Well, it got me thinking, what if I were to go back through the calendar and see what she did after day one of her senatancy.

On Day 1 of her senatancy she took an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States."

So far, so good.

On Day 195 of her senatancy, Clinton had the Capital One idea to vote for the bankruptcy bill, but announced at a debate on day 2533 of her senatancy that she was happy it didn't pass.

Hmm, awkward

On Day 644 of her senatancy, Clinton gave war authorization to an administration she claims, quote, "Will go down in history as one of the worst that has ever governed our country."

If I thought someone was gonna go down as one of the "worst that has ever governed our country," I am not sure I would even authorize them to walk my dog.

But that's just me.

On Day 1525 of her senatancy, Clinton missed the big vote on the bankruptcy bill.

It passed.

Banks rejoiced.

On Day 1764 Clinton co-sponsors legislation to criminalize flag burning.

The poor, the soldiers and the uninsured appreciated her focusing on the issue that effects them most.

On Day 1989 Clinton attended a fundraiser thrown on her behalf by enemy of the facts, Rupert Murdoch.

I guess money grows on sleeze.

So sure, Hillary will be ready on day one, but ready to do what, is the bigger question.
