Would Clinton Be Crushing McSame??
Newsweek seems to think so...
While some Democrats panic (prematurely, experts say) over a series of polls showing the average gap between Barack Obama and John McCain shrinking from eight points on June 23 to 1.4 points today, another slice of the party--namely, the disgruntled-Clintonista contingent--is reacting with four cruel words: "I told you so." And thanks to the new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, they have some ammunition. Released yesterday afternoon, the survey gives Obama 45 percent to 42 percent lead over McCain--down from his six-point advantage last month--while putting Clinton ahead of the Republican nominee 49-43. "The Democrats really needed Hillary to win, and not as VP," writes Stumper reader MCGILL. "McCain has it." Fellow commenter "jpokergman" goes one step further, predicting that Denver will "morph into a Hillary-buyer-remorse-lovefest," with "'we could have had Hillary'... rocketing through the Democratic convention" and the press "turn[ing] on Obama like a starving pit-bull."Oh dear...
Yeah it has nothing to do with the fact that the Obama and McCain campaigns haven't concentrated any political fire on her in about 4-5 months especially since she dropped out and put her support behind Obama. But you can ignore that reality if it makes you feel better about yourself. We're less than a week away from Obama being the official nominee? How are you feeling?
Hmmm, never thought about that one...and yet we were told that once Obama became the presumptive nominee he would be thrashing McSame. As I recall, when HIll and Barky were campaigning against one another, Hillary was still whipping McSame.
Who said it? Who said it would be easy? Hillary didn't have anything thrown against her in the last two months of the primary. McCain had started moving his attack toward Obama and Obama moved his attack to McCain. Hillary and Barack were BOTH ahead of McCain. If Hillary were the nominee, I would propose that she would be in the same position in the polls as Barack. Except she wouldn't have bitter, self-absorbed Obama supporters trying to derail her campaign.
Sen. Biden will be a purposeful and dynamic vice president who will help Sen. Obama both win the presidency and govern this great country."

I agree spotter. Hillary is going to be awesome in the cabinet. What position do you think she is angling for?Post a Comment
