President Hillary Clinton. For Real? Ain't Gonna Happen.
She was, for a long time, what, 20 points ahead in NH? She ended up winning by 3. This is an "upset victory"?
I am just revolted by the idea of the Clintons back in the White House. If she is a candidate, this won't be a "change election" -- it will be the referendum on Bill Clinton that the Republicans always wanted to have. All we will hear about is Cattle Futures, Travelgate, Vince Foster, the Rose Law Firm, Monica, Perjury, Impeachment, what Bill "failed" to do (in hindsight) to take out Osama bin Laden in the 90s, and let's not forget WHITEWATER. Hillary's botched attempt at National Healthcare while First Lady is the LEAST of it.
If Hillary is the Democratic nominee, McCain had better be the GOP nominee, or Mike Bloomberg better get ready to make a little history, because Hillary won't win. Not because she is a woman, but because she can't claim the experience of the Clinton White House without being married to all of its scandals too. I laugh when she says she's vetted. Oh, please. Americans forget quickly, but I can see the ads now. If you have seen Olbermann's feature on Bush scandals you may have forgotten about, this will be the 30 second version of all the things listed above.
All Hillary does is grease the skids to elect whoever wins the GOP nomination. She is the machine candidate, just like Bob Dole was in 1996. Watching Dole win the primaries in 1996 and lose the general was like watching a year-long trainwreck. You knew he wasn't going to win in November, but he kept winning primaries because he had the years of connections behind him that owed him. Obama is making a dent into that machine, Edwards still could. But machines win primaries, not general elections.
Hillary ain't Bill. Hillary is Bob Dole.
And Obama is Ronald Reagan... You just better hope it is 1980 and not 1976.
