Hillary for Benevolent Dictator '08

In speaking with the Associated Press about her health care proposals, Hillary Clinton said:
I wish it were possible to just wave a magic wand and say from the White House, 'Here's what I want.' But that's not the way it works.
To me, this quote speaks volumes. Hillary (like most other politicians) believe that they know what's best for "the country". They believe that if they pull the right levers, pass the right laws, they will be able to fix all problems. Of course, this approach has been tried many times in the past, and the result is always tyranny. But a well meaning tyranny.
