It is looking more like a McCain - Obama match-up this coming November.
The Team-Clinton has run into problems. HC has the problem of being unable to separate herself from WJC... first because she was an integral part of his presidency and then because she brought him in as an attempt to rescue her faltering campaign. It just seems as if the Democrats have reached the point of "no mas."
No matter how HC tried to portray herself as just a woman trying to break into the "boys club," she came across as disingenuous and calculating.A lot of women saw her as their "champion," but the fact that she creates as much negative as positive response apparently ran into the Democrat party as well as across party lines. It wasn't just her politics or her gender; a lot of people simply feel she doesn't have good character.
But it still may be premature to count her out. There are many vagaries and convolutions with the delegate process of the Democrat party. Primary votes may or may not have the final say.Meanwhile, Obama is being challenged to say what he means when he calls for "hope" and "change." He certainly has the black preacher act down. One almost anticipates the shouts of "Amen!" from the crowds.
We need hope! Amen! We're gonna have change! Amen! You'll all be saved. Amen!How are we going to do that Reverend Obama?
We're going to tax the rich and corporations. Amen! We're going to give the money to the poor. Amen! We're going to send everyone to college. Amen! We're going to give everyone jobs if they want one. Amen. We're going to take care of everyone without a job. Amen.But Reverand Obama, Al Gore is rich. Are we going to take his money? And the Clintons are rich. Are we going to take their money? And you are rich. Can we have your money?
You're gonna have change! You're gonna have hope!Right.
