The HRC Question

Just Sunday afternoon speculatin'.

Hillary ain't going down with the USS Obamanation, bet on it- serving Chairman O to the bitter end is not the way the Clintons plan to end their legacy. And as for other Democrats who were caught surprised by the meteoric rise of Obama, then just went with the flow-- there's a lot of shallow support out there that could evaporate as quickly as it appeared. The arrogant serial-opportunist Obama seems destined to offend much of the party's old guard, as well as anyone else that he used to get elected... but now no longer finds useful.

Reaganite is of the opinion that Obama's numbers are not going to recover. But that's highly unlikely, UNLESS the recession continues unabated (or gets much worse.) Even then, the only immediately-endangered species is Democratic Congresscritters.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Here's the thing: Obama knows that his honeymoon is short-lived under the very best of circumstances, which is why he's trying to jam ObamaCare, Cap-and-Tax, and a (summarily) ridiculous budget through Congress all at the same time.

But looking at cap-and-tax (which would have LOST if the Pubbies had held together)--and the now-imminent "re-shaping" of ObamaCare, it's clear that O will have to begin playing nice-nice with the (D) Party "old bulls," or he will lose Congress in '10.

Of course, that could also mean that he doesn't really give a rat's ass about Congressional (D's) after 2010, too--

I agree that Obama's numbers are not likely to tank anytime soon. As I've said many times, Obamalove runs strong and deep.

HRC was placed at State to, "...keep your enemies closer", then promptly marginalized. I agree that she is biding her time, but I think it will backfire, specifically BECAUSE she's been effectively marginalized.

Incidentally, I don't believe TCO is all that smart. Ol' Rahm is the brains of the outfit. I had an Obamalover tell me last night he was the "most intelligent president ever." When asked by what standard, he was dumbfounded. I turned and left.

"Tank" is a matter of perception AND reality. I think he could get to a 30's approval index IF the recession continues or gets worse.

Yes, Rahm (and Axelrod) are the enforcer and brains respectively; O is a dilettante theoretician, thin-skinned and narcissistic.

Obamalove is emotional. Income, or lack thereof, is hard fact. Emos can switch sides very fast.

I am not convinced that the Obamalovers are capable of believing He can possibly do wrong. They are so brainwashed by "Bush's Fault" (new term - BFS: Bush's Fault Syndrome) that they are incapable of losing the Obamalove. Similar to someone who continues to return to an abusive relationship.

Hey...this was TOTALLY off-topic.
