Call me cynical, but whenever I read that a candidate has vowed not to quit, they’re usually only weeks away from losing.
You’re not at all cynical. You’re simply applying the vote-of-confidence rationale to politics.
Ive watched enough of he good old “Hammer films” to know that Dracula isnt really dead until the wooden stake has been hammered all the way through the chest and the sun is up above the horizon.
Shes been working on this exact project since 1968. I say Dracula is just faking us out.
Shortly before the inaugural year of the Houston Texans football team, I put down a bet that they would win at least five and a half games. The next week, I heard an interview in which the coach said he wouldn’t measure success in terms of how many games they won, and I kissed my money goodbye.
This reminds me of that.
Not cynical, but wishful thinking. Still, it does look like Hillary is on that lonely road to being just another one of those women Bill used to bang.
That road ain’t so lonely; it’s the Santa Monica Freeway during rush hour….
Considering that there approximately thirty-two people in Iowa and New Hampshire combined, the real question should be: who give a hairy rat’s rear end?
Most of the Hillary mystique is media-derived; back in the day she was on her way to a coronation. Now the theme is that she’s self-destructing. I suspect the truth is somewhere in-between.
Recall this is the same media which regularly gets little things like Hurricane Katrina and the Iraq war 90% wrong…
It’s the politics of lowered expectations. So that when she comes in second it’ll look like momentum has shifted in her favor.
Never underestimate a Clinton.
I wouldn’t write her off that quickly. Yesterday I heard Sean Hannity wishing she could last a little longer, since he’s getting a lot of mileage out of the “Stop Hillary Express.” She may prove to be the Freddy Kreuger of American politics – no matter how many times you try to stop her, she keeps on coming back to haunt all of us!
BW: more like Michael Myers, perhaps. Heh.
