Speaking during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, Sen. Hillary Clinton on Monday blasted the Bush administration as "one of the worst" in U.S. history and compared the Republican-controlled House of Representatives to a plantation where dissenting voices are squelched.
The House "has been run like a plantation, and you know what I'm talking about," said Clinton, D-N.Y. "It has been run in a way so that nobody with a contrary view has had a chance to present legislation, to make an argument, to be heard." Read more.

"I think that Hillary is a wonderful speaker, however, I feel that she went a little too far with her remarks. If I was sitting in the audience I would have been shocked. Instead of spending her time bashing Bush, she should concentrate on helping the people who live in New York, like she promised. Hillary, use your brain and focus your energy on doing something positive. The Democrats are becoming nasty people. What is going on? I hope Chuck Schumer doesn't follow in her footsteps." — Maureen
"Hillary showed America her true colors. She wants to make us in middle America think that she is a moderate, but we know darn well she is left of what most Americans, black or white, believe in." — John (Kansas City, MO)
"Hillary should be castigated and resign for what she said." — Chris
"I think that Mrs. Clinton, could have worded her thoughts in a more practical if not non-offensive manner, for even though the civil war is over still, there is a great amount of hostility still left over from that time period and the many items of vocabulary used at that time, yet I'm able to see where she is coming from though." — Adam (Mount Dora, FL)
"Hillary is a real piece of work. Her latest trash talk says it all. She's so blatantly liberal but isn't honest enough to come right out and say it. Her followers won't see that, though. It's scary." — Lisa (Middletown, RI)
"Everyone has the right to say what they want. That's why I'm glad I live in the United States. With that said. I'm glad Mrs. Clinton said what she said. It just confirmed to me that I'll never vote for her if she runs for president." — Deborah"Well, it was an eloquent speech but it was the truth. Bush has run this country into the ground by serving his own interests and surrounding himself with his incompetent, corrupt cronies. Bush has been associated far too closely with people like bin Laden, DeLay, Enron, and the list goes on. Bush is corrupt and has done far more offensive things that Mrs. Clinton." — Lynne (Atlanta, GA)
"I don't believe her and fellow Democrat rants will serve them well in the future as more and more minorities realize their future well being depends on a healthy economy that Republicans are providing all Americans." — Blake (Kenosha, WI)
"Mrs. Clinton should know about the plantation. When her husband ran it, he was in the maid's quarters as often as possible. Who is she anyway?" — Patty (Newark, CA)
"As an African-American, I am greatly offended by her comments. Where in the world does she get the right? Look, Bush is completely out of touch with my community but Mrs. Clinton just went off the reservation. Bush's true colors were obvious when he abandon so many after Katrina, but Hillary is obviously politicizing to a demographic. No thanks, Mrs. Clinton." — Lysa (Chicago, IL)
"Bravo Hillary! It's about time Democrats got a spine and came out swinging. From Alito to the war to religious Right's influence, Bush has done more harm to democracy than anyone else in the history of the world. She should have been tougher. Hillary in 2008!" — Janice (Miami, FL)
