Hillary Clinton Pulls Out of Rally as Sarah Palin Scheduled to Speak

They did well on Saturday Night Live, so why not the Pro-Israel Anti-Iran Rally?  Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines called the move for Governor Palin to be at the event as Partisan.  But according to Wikipedia Partisan means more of opposition rather then coming together in soladarity for a cause.

In politics, partisan literally means organized into political parties. The expression “Partisan politics” usually refers to fervent, sometimes militant support of a party, cause, faction, person, or idea. Although this is typically an appellation with negative connotations, some supporters embrace the term, as can be seen by the names of the following publications:

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin  is coming to New York next week to carry John McCain’s flag at a pro-Israel, anti-Iran rally. But she won’t be sharing the stage with Sen. Hillary Clinton, who backed away from the event after learning Palin was coming.

“Her attendance was news to us,” Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines said last night. “Clearly there was some miscommunication because this was never billed to us as a partisan political event. Sen. Clinton will therefore not be attending this event.”

The Jewish group’s Web site listed Clinton, Palin, Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel and Iranian dissidents as speakers at the midday rally at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza off First Ave., which Hoenlein said will protest the expected UN appearance of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as “a state sponsor of terrorism.”

Monday- Clinton, Palin to Find Common Ground at Iran Protest

Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin plan to appear next week at the same rally in New York City –  perhaps the closest the two history-making women will be to each other before Election Day.

The rally Monday is billed as a protest against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s presence at the opening of the U.N. General Assembly. Palin also is expected to meet next week with foreign leaders at the United Nations, The Wall Street Journal reported, in a move to boost her foreign policy credentials.

The event is sponsored by the National Coalition to Stop Iran Now, as well as several Jewish advocacy organizations.

Stop Iran. Now!

The big powers are going down…a world without America and Israel is both possible and feasible
— Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran

Ahmadinejad is coming to the U.N. to spread his message of “holy hatred” against The United States, Israel, Women’s Rights, Religious and Other Minorities.

Stand united in the face of nuclear threats and human rights abuses.
