Skip to comments.Can Hillary Clinton win in 2008?
Posted on 01/20/2007 9:18:45 PM PST by MinorityRepublican
Hillary Clinton has finally announced that she is considering running for president in 2008 - a declaration anticipated for the past six years that puts a heavyweight contender into the race.
Senator Clinton has already made history by becoming the first former First Lady to be elected to public office.
But all thoughts will now turn to whether the New York Democrat really has what it takes to become the first woman president of the United States.
It would be foolish to dismiss a woman who sits on an enormous war chest and is backed by some of the best political strategists in the country.
But it would be equally unwise to bet that the US will elect a woman president when the country is at war - much less one who is already reviled by a substantial minority of Americans for her perceived liberalism and association with Bill Clinton.
Warning to Republicans
Mark Corallo, a Republican strategist, reckons she has a good chance of capturing the White House in 2008 - and says he is constantly warning friends against underestimating her.
"Every time a Republican tells me: 'We want [to run against] Hillary', I say: 'Be careful what you wish for'.
"There is no other candidate on either side of the equation that has the instant party organisation and the ability to raise an enormous amount of money.
"She has the two most formidable strategists in the Democratic Party - Terry McAuliffe and Harold Ickes," Mr Corallo says before correcting himself: "No, three, because Bill Clinton is the most formidable. The guy is brilliant."
Mr Corallo, co-owner of the consultancy Corallo Comstock, says only one Democrat could take the party's nomination away from Senator Clinton: Barack Obama, the first-term senator from Illinois.

Oh... my... god. Can these guys be *any* more up the democratic/clinton butt ? Bill 'brilliant' !? Good lord.
I think she can win. Look how close the loathsome Kerry came. It won't take much to put a Dem over the top in 2008. Kerry and Hillary are the two people it would be most painful to see as Commander-in-Chief of the military. Kerry is done but I think Hillary has an excellent chance.
Well, Her Royal Heinous could win a "dog-faced boy" contest.
yes, she can win.
demographic trends are moving against the Rs, especially if they nominate some "litmus test pure" conservative.
I think NOT. American will finally find a way
to "just say NO". The only thing more absurd than that scenario would be if somehow Jeb Bush got in the race and
won the nomination, and it was between them. Ain't gonna happen either way.
YES. SHE CAN WIN.
DO NOT underestimate her.
She has legions of demonic forces from hell in support of her; evidently most of or all the globalists . . . who have also firm control over the next 3-4 front runners in both the GOP and DIMRAT camps.
But she is the absolute worst possible creature to win the PResidency. She'd make Hitler look like a choir boy.
McChurian is little better but significantly less evil.
And Guillani is significantly better than McChurian but far from wonderful.
YES. SHE CAN WIN.
DO NOT underestimate her.
And Obammama is about as bad as she is in values but somewhat slicker, more naive and less seasoned at being evil.
The MSM, ALL THE GOVERNMENT MONEY DISPENSING AGENCIES; THE UNIVERSITIES; THE ENTERTAINMENT MEDIA . . .
ALL ARE FULL of sychophants eager to lick her . . . toes in support.
I do not think that America is ready for a woman president, and especially not a Hillary! (TM) She may have buckets and buckets of $$$ but I think that out of necessity she's going to have to take positions too moderate for the screaming leftwingers of the democrat party.
Considering? LOL Real decisive ain't she?
**Can Hillary Clinton win in 2008?**
No, she won't even win the primary.
The fact that she stayed with Bill's antics, lies, affairs and abuse of government tells us all we need to know about her.
Wouldn't it be delicious, though, if a strong 3rd party candidate the moonbats go for comes along and siphons off votes? Mmmmmmmm!
More jokes about her thighs.
