I must say that after tonight’s results I really do not see Hillary Clinton winning the democratic nomination.
How can she?
How can she retool her national message of experience to compete with Obama’s universal message of hope?
How can she compete with the droves of people young, old, black, white, men, women, rich, poor, republican and democrat that are flocking to Obama’s campaign? She has women and only barely..
How can she rest her hopes on Texas, Ohio and Pennsylvania does she think these states will help her to top Obama? Isn’t this a lot like putting all your eggs in one basket just like the ultimate loser Rudy Giuiliani? She will do just that and who knows she could win all three and ultimately the nomination but how will she do it?
Will she turn to Bill and ask him to step up his attacks on Obama or will she do it herself?
Will she try to best Obama in the debates?
Will she go after Mccain more to show that it’s the two of them while at the same time sidelining Obama?
Will she step up her advertising in the three remaining big states for her Texas, Ohio and Pennsylvania?
Is she going to lean even harder on the remaining uncommitted super delegates and force many of them to make a choice before the convention?
And don’t forget about money..if you’re going to want a favor from Hillary come ’09 you’re going to have to pony up more dough now or you’re never, ever going to hear from the Clintons again.
So, you can bet your bottom dollar that Clinton is going to do all of these things and then some all I can say is the next three weeks are going to be extremely, extremely interesting cause Clinton isn’t going down without a fight and if she and her staff can pull of a convincing win on March 4th in Texas and Ohio after a slew of losses this month it will be one for the record books and I’m sure Hillary is saying to herself right now, ” Too bad bad Karl Rove is a Republican..”
