The “Center for Public Opinion & Democracy”, a name that sounds like a front for a money laundering operation if I ever heard one, cited an Opinion Dynamics poll, which said that John Kerry would beat Jeb Bush in a two way race in ’08. Not only that, but if the election were held today, Hillary Clinton could beat Jeb Bush, Bill Frist, George Pataki, and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Will Hillary be the nominee? Other liberal Democrat Senators have had success running for the presidency in recent decades. There was… Well… Oh, there was… no, he wasn’t a Senator. What about… no…
Democrats will be able to look the other way, and embrace the “new” Hillary, who will, by 2007, have had a political makeover that will make Reagan look like a Roosevelt era New-Dealer.
Come on, Democrats… look past the fact that she made an illegal fortune insider trading cattle futures. Just view it as a case of, as they say, “bovine intervention.” Forget that she and Vince Foster carried the attorney-client privilege to the point of backseat tickle-fights and clasp fumbling, and he was later found dead while Hillary and her accomplices rifled his office so severely that investigators falsely assumed that Guns N’ Roses had spent the night there. Whitewater? Hey, shafting people in land deals is the American way, buddy, and so is stealing silverware.
These things have never been really examined by the mainstream press, and maybe they never will be. Only the “kooky right crazies” have looked into them. If Hillary runs and there is some “Whitewater investors for truth” ads that come out, these poll numbers could be drastically altered. Fun to think about, anyway.
