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.
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.
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.
