Skip to comments.A Campaign Retools to Seek Second Clinton Comeback
Posted on 01/05/2008 8:49:32 AM PST by doug from upland
MANCHESTER, N.H. Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton have been in career-threatening scrapes before, but never quite like the one they face in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, when nothing less than their would-be dynasty will be on the line.
In trying to battle back from her loss in the Iowa caucuses to Senator Barack Obama of Illinois, Mrs. Clinton is recalibrating her message in hopes of producing Comeback Kid: The Sequel achieving the reversal of fortune her husband pulled off with his second-place finish here in the Democratic nomination contest in 1992.
Mrs. Clinton, after arriving here at 4 a.m. Friday, used a rally in Nashua to begin focusing on young voters and independents, two groups that flocked to the Obama banner in Iowa. She said she wanted to appeal to young people, and surrounded herself with them at the rally, in contrast to her caucus night party where older, familiar faces from the Clinton administration and her political team stood out.

Demon One summoning her cohorts from the lake of fire.
I thought you might enjoy the photo.
The DBMs keep trying to compare this campaign with BillyJeff's from the 90s.
Sorry, it can't be done. Different people, different time, different climate.
I'm beginning to believe Senator Clinton's minions and handlers don't understand these fundamental changes either.
So is Hillary now promising a young “Hip” administration like her husband did?
The political strategy of the Clintons has always been--"Let's do extensive polling, figure out what the people want, and make believe that's who we are."
It reminds me of the old joke--the Jewish tailor is fitting a guy for a suit. The guy likes the suit, but wants it in green. The tailor says, "You want a green suit, we'll turn on the green light."
Methinks the Clintons have "turned on the green light" once too often. Mehopes.
Yikes! That is evil.
From another blog:
Hillary said “look at my experience” and they did.
I hope she survives, and is the Dem candidate.
‘Cmon, kiddies! Vote for Granny - she’s hip and phat. Want to see her tattoo?
LOL. Hillery’s got HIP.
Yep, when you want to get young people energized about your candidacy you unleash Dick Gephardt. That always works.
Come back Hag?
Come back womyn?
By the way, anyone knows what happened to the FReeper “Hillary’s Lovely Legs”? Seems a while since I’ve seen a post from HLL, although this is great timing for the moniker.
the clock fell off the wall......
How are you the Comback Kid to a Coronation?? How many 65 yr old kids are there?
Pray for W and Our Troops
Oh, she just looks and sounds 65.
Pray for W and Our Troops
That line is so funny since Hillary has brought out Wes Clark, Madeleine Albright, Billy Boy, Richard A. Gephardt, her mother, a former grade-school teacher - all seniors and all touting her "greatness." Yep, all of those cronies of hers will help her appeal to the younger generation- Not. Oh, I forgot, she does "USE" her daughter, who has no appeal to anyone at all - no weight with the underprivileged/poor or middle-class since she has lived a protected life away from reality... and won't even talk to the press or answer questions.
In my opinion, Obama getting the Democrat nomination is the best thing that could happen to the GOP. It will finish off the Clintons forever. If Shrillary wins the nomination and loses the general election in November, she'll be back. But she cannot politically survive getting blown out in the primaries. If she loses the nomination to Obama, her career in national politics is over.
Now many in the GOP are afraid to face Obama in the general election. I am not worried about Obama. He might be the darling of the left, the "flavor of the month" so to speak, but he cannot win enough electoral votes to be president. His Muslim heritage and lack of experience are huge liabilities for him and he will get clobbered outside the urban areas no matter who the GOP puts up.
I think Shrillary would get clobbered too but I just can't stomach having her in the limelight for the next 10 months. I want her to just go away. And like I said earlier, if she gets the nomination, she'll be back to haunt us again in later elections. I do not think a loss (no matter how huge) in a general election will finish her politically, but the failure to win the nomination at all surely will.
Hips, thighs, and . . . cankles.
Dynasty? DYNASTY? Bill & Hill? Hey, I thought hillary was going to be her Own Woman. She has vast experience, and doesn't need any help from her rapist husband.
Is the New York Times now saying that this is the Clinton Dynasty we are supposed to be electing to the Presidency? Two for the price of one?
Which one gets to sit in the Oval Office and dirty the rug?
Clintoon comeback will turn into Clintoon smackdown!
Rasmussen’s site is melting down since Drudge posted their new poll with the H-beast 10 points down in NH!
As the troubador of our halcyon youth put it, “Even the president of the United States sometimes must have to stand naked.” And in Hill’s case, that’s a thought to make you hurl just a little bit.
Different girl. I should use that one.
Hillary is almost anything but young and hip.
“Hip”? What about the “Thighs”?
I think she’s crying over Sanjaya.
I like it.
Matt Drudge has a photo of that event from a different angle up on his web site. It makes Hilary appear to be behind bars.
If it were only true
Post of the day!
On another note: Hey, Hildy, politics is like football. Once in a while the stars align and you get a great run. But take the pieces of the puzzle apart and try to reassemble them in a different setting, a different time, different circumstances and even Joe Montana doesn’t play like Joe Montana any more.
I read one article where it was reported that Maddy Albright took to the stage at a Hildabeast rally in Iowa and began dancing to some pop song in an effort to juice the crowd.
Well, that’s mighty nice news! Thank you!
Hip? What about the Thighs?
Doesn’t matter. They are melted together.
I do think an Obama nomination would finish off the Klintoons for good, which (as Bill Parcells,in another context, is wont to say) is a “good thing, not a bad thing.”
However, I do think that Obama will be difficult to beat in Nov. That said, I think it will be difficult for any Republican to win in Nov, and, among the Rat candidates, Obama is probably the least dangerous to the long-term fate of our country.
P.S. The other prob with having to stomach Hildy in the limelight is that Bubba comes with her. That’s one of the real horrors of a Hildy presidency-—the fact that Bubba would be sticking his big face back into our lives on a 24/7 basis as well.
Until then, I think I'll drink heavily.
Okay, here is the challenge: the first person who can sign up on Hillary’s site as Vince Foster and get a confirmation to attend an event in New Hampshire will get a HILLARY! UNCENSORED DVD.
Event schedule: http://www.hillaryclinton.com/events/20070210/?sc=8
SIGN UP: http://www.hillaryclinton.com/join/?sc=2 *** if you want it to come to Vince Foster, put both of those names in the FIRST NAME box and whatever clever name in the LAST NAME box. Make sure to use the zipcode for the area to make them think you are in New Hampshire.
It will not be over. Hillary loves power too much, she will either keep her seat in New York and move to the left and become a muck racker (like Babs Boxer) or listen to me here, yes a Supreme Court nominee from an Obama administration. Think about it, she would love to sit on a life time appointment legislating from the bench as much as she could.
I agree: We've already HAD the clinton experience, and even some of the previous-kool-aid-sucking-libs have to admit that clintons are abhorent.
The best thing to come out of Herself's bulldozing drive for power might just be that it destroys the false-"legacy" that billyboy was planning on. All of these reminders and forced realizations may prevent even the lib writers of "history" to acknowledge the absolute clintonian corruption.
All of that being said, I still don't trust the bitch:
