Plus the Upcoming Recession, Which Will be Associated in the Public Mind With Bush & the GOP

The Great Unknown

[I] warned those leaning to Bush over Kerry in 2004 that a Bush win could put Hillary in the White House for two terms. I’m sure many laughed at that line also. Now, Hillary has to be considered the clear favorite to win the Presidency. She leads the Democratic candidates in the polls and number two is Barack Obama whose entire résumé says: "very good public speaker." That’s a very good place to be.
(By the way, I’m sure many also laughed when I predicted on December 3, 2003, that John Kerry would be the Democratic nominee.)

Many people cannot believe that Hillary has a chance because everyone they know dislikes her. But that’s because birds of a feather flock together. Your friends are not a scientific survey.
Now look over at the Republican side and start laughing. Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich? [...]

For many reasons I [believe] Hillary would beat [John McCain]. Reason number one is his ferocious support of the [...] war in Iraq. If it’s Hillary versus McCain, Hillary has the good fortune of being the antiwar choice even though she supported the war...

I think it's evidence of the dysfunctionality of our political system that HRC could win because the GOP can't nominate a good candidate. As others have pointed out, it is stunning how badly Bush did against Kerry, given that it would have been hard to think of a more perfect foil for Karl Rove. Heck, I would seriously consider voting for HRC over McCain.

I'm definitely voting for Hill if the alternative is McCain, although I don't think that he's a bad guy.
