Posted on 11/03/2008 4:23:50 AM PST by DocT111
PHILADELPHIA - Hillary Rodham Clinton is on her way to becoming the biggest loser of this election.
If he wins tomorrow, Barack Obama will certainly be his party's standard-bearer in 2012 - icing Clinton out of the White House for at least eight years.
And she'll be nearly 70 in 2016 - a young sprout compared to John McCain but probably too old to carry the flag for the newly recast party of youth and hope.
Until then, Clinton will be exiled to the Senate to serve out her second term, more like a sentence than a term for the former first lady, who will be a middle player in an increasingly fat Democratic majority.

I really don't believe Hillary will vote for Obama when she goes to pull the lever - neither will Bill.
Let's go vote!
I used to like the NY Post.........
MSM “new” math:
70 - young sprout
72 -ancient geezer
> Do you think this is a way to suppress PUMA votes?
It’s a good way to get PUMA votes to go with McCain. At least then The Beast has a chance in 2012.
Much as I don’t like the idea of The Beast as POTUS in 2012, it is an infinitely better prospect than having Obomber in the Oval Office for two terms.
There, I fixed it.
The NY Post was thrown off of Barry's plane last week because it endorsed McCain.
Monkey muffins. This assumes a victory of Odumbo. When McCain wins, Hillary will start camapaigning for 2012 and the media will flock back to her.
So will the PUMA’s for that matter, but their help in defeating Ding Dong is greatly appreciated in the meantime.
The NY Post was thrown off too? I knew the Wash Times was..
Well, It’s not written in a kind way, but it is a reminder to Hillary fans that if they vote for Obama, they are screwing any chance they may have for Hillary 2012.
I think Hurt’s trying to get the PUMAs motivated here. Vite McCain or Hil’s done.
All the more reason why 0bama will lose. I realize the Clintons have been out there in the last few days, but it hasn’t been getting great coverage. That’s likely because their support is minimal, and tepid, at best. They need 0bama to look like the inevitable choice, then fall harder than Hillary did in the primaries. That way, the “he had it in the palm of his hands and blew it” mantra can stick and cripple him for a 2012 run.
Divine Justice. That’s what you get for pardoning so-called “former” domestic terrorists.
Just the opposite. It is trying to encourage PUMA votes. The message is: If Obama wins, Hillary's chances for the Presidency are gone. So the only hope is an Obama loss. The NYP must still be smarting from being kicked off the Messiah's plane.
Oh, so the article is a snarky little hissy fit.
What they do not want to think about is that in the third year of CarterII, as he slinks from the ashes of the office in disgrace, H! will be there to save the day.
I used to think of H! as Satan Incarnate but compared to Obumba, she is but a minor deamon.
Hillary will run in ‘12. She will challange osamaobama, who despite the msm’s best attempt to protect him, will have a four year term that will actually make Carter look good. Carter had only the Russians to worry about (aside from that little problem with Iran).
If McCain wins tomorrow, maybe the media will investigate obamma lamma ding dong a little more closely over the next few years.
His past, his associations, his family, etc.
I doubt it but ya never know.
If Hillary had shown the courage to renounce Obama - and taken the Independent path ala Joe Lieberman she would have shown loyalty to her supporters, disgust with the DNC crooks and thieves as well as solidified her PUMAS.
As it stands - she has stayed with a party that clearly disowned her for a less qualified, anti-American Marxist.
She will have serious regrets.
No, at a minimum she’ll displace Harry Reid as Senate Majority leader. There is a quid pro quo in there somewhere. If Obama wins, the RATs will execute a large portion of their agenda and SML is a way for her to get her name on the stuff. If Obama loses, then as SML she will lead the opposition to McCain, building her resume for the showdown with Sarah in 2012.
Yeah, at least we have this going for us... The witch is dead.
Agreed! Neither Clinton will be voting for the big 0 and I imagine their home is littered with voodoo dolls with pins in it also!
I would love to see Patrick Fitzgerald come today for Obama. :)
If Obama is elected Hillary goes to the Supreme Court. That’s her consolation prize.
Anyone who looks casually upon the current political landscape can draw only one conclusion: Hillary is in the catbird seat. If McCain wins, she'll run in 2012. The DNC will have learned from the Obama mistake (unlike the GOP) and will nominate and push a candidate who appears (and who has actually voted) a bit more to the center. That will be Hillary. And Hillary will be running after 12 years of Republicans. The odds are very much stacked against another 4 years of Republicans, no matter how good McCain and Palin and, and regardless of whether McCain steps down and Palin becomes the first US president.
If Obama wins, Hillary has most likely been promised a seat on the USSC, which she would be happy to take and hold on to for the rest of her career.
This is a win-win situation for Hillary, and it still sickens me, and it is why I still haven't changed my tag line from over a year ago.
So funny that we have to pull for Hillary running in ‘12 to get votes for our team this year. Who could have predicted this, LOL?
That ain’t all she can kiss, thanks Rush.
Don’t be surprised to see Hillary run for NY Governor in 2010 and if Obama falters in 2012, I wouldn’t put it beyond her to see her challenge him for the Dem. nomination. The nation may be pretty tired of Obama by then.
I think she’s been promised *somthing* but not sure what. The line is too long for USSC — Cass Sunstein and Kmiec are ahead of her.
This is true but I do believe she would have preferred to be the first woman president. So it is a set back. On the other hand she can do far more damage in the supreme court IMHO.
Its even a better prospect than having Obomber in the Oval Office for one term.
1]The only way for Hillary to have a shot in 2012 is for NObama to lose. We have 4 years to so thoroughly discredit this charlatan that he will never have a shot at POTUS again.
2] As PUMA extraordinaire Dr. Lynette Long pointed out, those supporters who are writing Hillary in are making a mistake, because if NObama were to win, he will extract 50 political lashes from her for every Hillary vote that "should have gone to him". It's so obvious that she's been just a hostage going through the motions on NObama's campaign. We know it, and he knows it.
3] Not voting at all will not hurt BHussein one bit and savvy voters know it. The ONLY way to battle him and his gigantic messianic ego is to ensure his loss by lifting up McCain with the vote.
I agree, I actually thought this could be looked at as “biased” against Obama, hoping Hillary voters realize that their candidate would never be president if Obama wins. However, it’s also appropriate to say that the MSM doesn’t even approach the issue even though it’s an obvious question.
This is great news. This is one of the side benefits of this dismal campaign season. We might be rid of the Clintons forever.
And I must admit it has been fun to see PIAPS(Pig in a Pantsuit Hillary) and her pervert husband’s campaign go down in flames. Now the world knows what spoiled brats they are.
Now if McCain can only beat her successor that would be perfect.
A rat in the white house is worth more than a rat in the pants suit
I think you’re right. But leftists who dedicate their lives to “the cause” always have alternate routes and they content themselves with the conviction that all benefit the cause. Yes, she wanted to be the first woman president and it will be a setback, but if she ends up in another position that gives her rule over the people, she’ll find contentment.
But never underestimate these greedy radicals. She may yet find a way to be the first woman president.
I could never figure this out:
Who is the more liberal, Obama or Hillary Clinton?
She is corrupt, liberal and a nut-case in her own way — if she were ever President she would surely screw some stuff up badly — but,deep-down, she doesn't fundamentally HATE America...
I believe she would vote for gwb again over Obama — McCain is a no brainer for her... Honestly, is there anyone who thinks Obama likes HRC more than McCain does?
HRC is Trotsky to BHO as Lenin — if he becomes President (may god forbid) — he will look to marginalize her or dispose of her... he will be MOST ruthless in his pursuit of dissent in his own party (that's always what Socialists tyrants do first)
I’m not sure that even the dims will want him in office after he has been there a month. It may be way too early to count out the Beast.
Never heard that one before! Good line.
This is something that I will always wonder about. What if Hillary had been nominated?
The Clintons are moral-less cheats but they atleast are PROUD to be Americans.
I am astounded that a guy who hates America has a 48% chance of becoming President.
Who knew after the bitter 90s that I would now start thinking of Bill Clinton as “moderate” Democrat.
I used to utterly despise him in the 90s. Now he positively looks like Ronald Reagan compared to the Marxist running for the Presidency.
The biggest loser may be Hillary Clinton (as the author says).
The biggest winner definitely is Bill Clinton as millions of Republicans are now saying.. “Bill.. compared to Obama... you are fantastic... come back! Just keep away from the interns.. please”
so long as the beast draws breath she is dangerous
I propose another idea. If McCain wins tomorrow, the media will have totally lost all credibility and might even go broke. We will then have a window of opportunity to correct the MSM image of conservatives as evil. If we are successful, we may even keep some PUMA's on our side even in an event of a Hillary run in 2012.
BHO is a SOCIALIST — that is not hyperbole, it is fact.
Obama is a possible Chavez or Castro — Hillary? like a center-left European bureaucrat...
Hillary has never called for the creation of a Domestic Political Police force — BHO can imagine life without one...
Don't get me wrong — hrc sucks and would screw up our economy etc... but she is Barry Goldwater compared to BHO.
That One once belonged to the New Party.
