Now, with the Clinton campaign in apparent disarray like nothing we've ever seen before, people are freaking out again. But don't worry (well, actually I am worried). Hillary will still win. It's all in the cards of a Clinton-McCain showdown--a repeat of the Clinton-Dole "showdown" of 12 years ago. And Hillary will be our next president.
You heard it here first. If I'm wrong, I'll stop manufacturing conspiracy theories. And I wish I could say I will have been glad that I was wrong, but there are no other apparent good options at this point. So the chances that there will be joy in my Mudville at that point are virtually nil.
Hillary's campaign manager quit recently. The deputy campaign manager resigned a day or two ago. Obama kicked Hillary's trash in D.C., Virginia, and Delaware. And the Clinton campaign is in total disarray...
Or is it?
James Carville says he thinks so.
Even longtime Clinton ally James Carville is acknowledging that Hillary is in trouble, saying that if she loses the March 4 primary in either Texas or Ohio, her campaign is doomed.I would that it were true. She is clearly the disaster of three disasters (to include McCain and Obama) that would occur most quickly to America.
Speaking at the International Builders Show in Florida on Wednesday, Carville, a top adviser to Bill Clinton in the 1990s, declared:
"She's behind. Make no mistake. If she loses either Texas or Ohio, this thing is done."
But the carefully placed rumors and events indicate nothing of a potential Clinton meltdown. She will be president. It's all in the cards. Establishment cards, that is. Another "against-all-odds" victory, and Hillary will become invincible. She will be made to look like the savior--that she isn't--when it comes to all varieties of socialistic reform, and health care will be her first offering.
This presidential campaign serial makes for absolutely awesome theatrics--at least for those who want to be so titillated. And it seems to have been planned just in time before the writer's "un-strike" can have its counter-effect on millions of American minds full of mush.
For me though in this "presidential-campaign-like-nearly-all-others", I remain once again frustrated and irritated beyond imagination. Bush, the erstwhile savior/now-turned rascal bum, will be thrown out, and Hillary, the new savior will be showered with accolades as she rides into Washington on her trusty charger.
But you know what?
Look! The queen is wearing no clothes!!
Update 6-4-2008: Everyone says that Obama is the nominee, but that's only "technically". Meanwhile, Hillary presses on.
