"Hillary is Finished"

Now the FUn begins. As you might have noticed, I have been somewhat reticent in reporting the DUmmie reaction to the very latest political news and polls. Why? Because it is so temporary. However, now we have SOLID results and the 2008 campaign now goes into high gear. And the BIG story will be the reaction of Hillary to her 3rd place finish. I guarantee you that she will NOT go quietly into the night. Look for the long knives to come out as Hillary destroys all her major opponents by any means possible. Enjoy your victories, Barack and Breck Girl, because you are about to enter Hillary Hell. To quote Wyatt Earp from the movie "Tombstone": "You tell 'em I'M coming... and hell's coming with me, you hear?... Hell's coming with me!" And like Wyatt Earp, Hillary is about to commence her Vengeance Ride as she picks off her opponents one by one. For the DUFUs, great material and great entertainment. Therefore the DUmmies are a bit premature in this THREAD announcing that "Hillary is Finished." So let us now watch the DUmmies prematurely dance on Hillary's political grave in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering at the intelligence of the Hawkeye Republicans for stupidly doing what the Democrats wanted them to do, is in the [brackets]:


Hillary is Finished


[Do not rejoice quite yet, my little DUmmie. The Hildebeast is about to pull out the long knives.]


Her only play is to go negative on Obama and that strategy backfired before. She can't run on her record because the most important vote she ever cast was the wrong one that led to the biggest foreign policy disaster in history. The least you could have done is admit your mistake like Edwards.


[Going negative on Obama is a huge understatement. Hell is coming! Hillary is coming! Let the Vengeance Ride begin!]


Bye Hillary, thanks for playing. You sold your soul and it is time to pay up.


[Hillary might pay up but not before taking several pounds of flesh out of Barack and the Breck Girl.]


Good luck to Edwards or Obama. Any combination of those two candidates is a winner.


[They're going to need a lot of luck to survive the coming Hillary onslaught from her Vengeance Ride. And now to hear from the rest of the DUmmies...]


I don't thik she is out.


[I thik you are right. It sure wasn't over when Wyatt told Johnny Ringo and Curly Bill that it was over.]


I don't think she is either. In fact, it will still be close. But she really doesn't have any play at this point and the momentum factor for her has been broken.


[I'm picturing Hillary taking down Obama and then signaling to Bill with a finger, "one," suggesting that there are many others to take down.]


But she's on the ropes and bleeding. She desperately NEEDS New Hampshire now to remain relevant. If she loses NH and it's not even close like Iowa...then yea, I'd say she's just about done.


[That means the Vengeance Ride goes into high gear.]


I just don't see what play she has that doesn't involve going negative against Obama.


[I guess you could call themonuclear destruction "negative."]


Even Obama has a new swagger.

[Which will soon turn into a limp.]


Wishful thinking won't make it so. Hill has a pile of money, national poll numbers, and a big experienced organization.


[And a vindictive War Room.


You don't walk away from the trouncing she took.


[In Hillary's case, you go on the Vengeance Ride.]


I don't think she's finished, but she does have a bit of a sticky wicket on her hands.


[We know that it was never Bill's sticky wicket in her hands for at least a quarter century.]


Another one drunk on the excitement of the moment!!!! Hillary is far from finished. Since when has IA been accurate in predicting future presidents???


[1980. Ronald Reagan lost in Iowa and we know he went on to lose... WAIT! Scratch that example.]


It's not over until Candy Crowley sings


[LOL!]


What could Hillary possibly do at this point to turn things around?


[Hee! Hee! How about a National Enquirer cover story on Obama as well?]


She's not finished until someone drags her offstage kicking and screaming.


[Doc Holliday will be delivering a Kewpie Doll to you.]


I really shudder to think of a Shuckabee presidency.

[I really shudder to think of a Shuckabee candidacy.]

What is everyone's fascination with this caucus and it's result? It's only one caucus, it's not the general election, yet so many people are making foolish statements like "What could Hillary possibly do at this point to turn things around?"

Hay people, there's still a hell of a lot of campaigning between now and the national conventions where the REAL choice for the nominee will be made. This is just the first step of a very long process.

The networks were in overdrive last night with periodic updates during regularly scheduled programs, continual news coverage on CNN, FOX, and the rest, "expert" annalists, and even a countdown (86 percent reporting) on the results. They acted like it was the general election! I couldn't believe it! How much money was spent on the coverage last night? Is this something that will happen with EVERY caucus and primary until the conventions?

Yow! If you caught Fox News with Brit Hume tonight, you heard the ever-bizarre Juan Williams describing Obama as "Kennedy-esque", and "having transcended politics and speaking directly to our souls" and other, over-the-top gargle of the sort.

The panel was not sanguine about Hillary's negative campaigning strategy in New Hamp., and didn't hold out much hope for her. They even described the dais where she gave her loser spin as "Madame Tussaud's WaxWorks", because of Madeline Albright, Wes Clark, and a host of other 90's era Clinton zombies.

She is in trouble.

Oh Lord, let her be eaten alive by the Dems. Let her be chewed up and spat out to go away defeated by the faithful and not a "victim" of a "vast right-wing conspiracy".

And somebody, please remember that the only way to kill her is to remove the head, stake the heart and fill the mouth with garlic, lest she rise with the moon.

Oh, wait! That's vampires. Um. Do it anyway.

Can't be too careful.

PJ is dead on with his comment about Rodham going on a "Ride Of Vengence".

I've heard reports that she is fixing to unload stories on Obama about him either being far worse of a drug fiend that he admits, or that he is something on the level of being a drug dealer. Either way, she's got to destroy him without ruining the reputation of the party that has resulted in them garnering 90% or more of the black vote every Presidential election since 1964. That will be no simple task.

Regardless, she will attempt to utterly destroy Obama and in so doing, possibly doom the hopes of either of them winning the general election.

You'll know the UberFrauFuhrer takes the gloves off when she lets The Gimp,(Billbo), out of his box and sends him on ahead of her to work the crowds with some cute campaign volunteers.

I just love the moron who thinks Iraq is the worst foreign policy diaster in history.

I think I give the Munich Conference that dubious honor. Of course, I know history. Something Democrats, as a rule, tend to shy away from, because it has this pesky habit of proving them utterly wrong.

Oh, and Clinton is far from done. Morons like the ones in this thread (and the media, and the idiots of all political types that take the latest polls as though they were the truth of the world) are just completely out of touch. Hilary Clinton is not going down that easy. It's not in her nature to give up, and she has the money and backing to stay in the race. Edwards is the one who is in trouble. His support, in my opinion, rests on continuing media attention and good primary results. A bad showing in NH could knock right out.

Great photo, PJ. Sigh.

I think what wingnutia must remember is that the Dems are picking their president. A whole lot of them don't like HRC. We're seeing a shift. After watching the ABC debates tonight, it's pretty clear we're seeing a shift within the RepubliDUms as well. Who would've thought they would be competing for the best message on global warming? Six months ago the RepbubliDUms were competing to dismiss it.

Anyway, HRC may lose this. But if anyone thinks the Dems won't get behind whoever rises to the top, they're wrong. A HRC defeat is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a defeat of the entire party. The same can be said of the popularity of Huckabee and Paul. The "outsider" is looking like the winner in this contest on both sides. That's a good thing.

That can't be THE Trogalman!

Who are you stranger, and where is our favorite ranting anger-leftie? That was almost completely rational, even scholarly.

Indeed. Your point is well taken, and I, (like many of us) still view this as a "process", despite the MSM's insistence that things be settled by news time tonight. Their interest in a boiling pot is motivated by profit and their ferocious desire to be 'kingmakers'.

Personally, I see the 'Huckaboom' as a media-manufactured hype job that is appealing to the religious right. Sadly, I don't think his fundamentals are there, and the shine will wear off.

Mitt? Who knows? He's holding up, but...

McCain? Don't think so. God love him and his service for the country, but perhaps this good and faithful servant should take a well-deserved rest.

Fred? I like him more and more, especially the media slapdowns and persistent failure to suck up to the MSM or party hacks. I just don't know if he's going to set the electorate on fire, and that's what it will take to win.

There's almost a year ahead, and much can happen. Hillary still holds some mighty good poll numbers, Obama is rising but that only makes him a more prominent target, and, who knows what will transpire?

I am content to wait, watch, support and encourage, and let the process work.

(BTW, if you are going to insist on gratuitously insulting tags, it would be spelled 'wingnuttia'. Two t's. But you really don't need that stuff to voice a contrary opinion you know. 'Contrary' is part of the process, too.)

You got that right. What's become surprising about Obama is that he's got the fire. He just does. Even to this cynical lib. That's not to say he'll win.

But it's all about a commonality of purpose. In that respect, we all know Obama's right. We have to pull together or we're fucked. It's really just that simple.

Thanks. Double 't'. Got it. Anything to be more insulting.

Uh...no. Moonbattia must remember that they are selecting their nominee.

Picking the President is the task of wingbattia sitting as a Committee of the Whole,(which means we lock Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich supporters up while the rest of us go to the polls).
