Stopping Hillary Before She Starts


She hasn't said she's running yet, but that's not stopping Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's foes from trying to keep her out of the White House with a new website, Launched this week, the site features the animated Hillary Show, with new episodes planned for when Clinton makes news. The show's first cartoon guests: Sen. John Kerry, whom the animated Clinton calls "loser," and a screaming Democratic National Committee Chair Howard Dean. "We knew people were tired of the mean television ads you find in every campaign," says Dick Collins, the Dallas-based moneyman who ponied up most of the $250,000 that the site launch required. "So we wanted to have some fun." But Collins says it could turn nasty as '08 nears: "You never know where you end up."
