Yes, in keeping with their tradition of doling out grammys to prominent liberal politicians for their boring “audio books”. It’s one more little “take that” in the Obama v. Hillary battle.
And you thought losing Washington State by 70-30 was bad.
I wonder what it would have been like had Obama actually accepted the award in person? Can you imagine the Obama-walks-the-red-carpet segment on Entertainment Tonight? What a strange news story that would have made. But not altogether strange for the Dems. (They do love their Hollywood.)
I’m in New Haven, but I didn’t make it down for Hillary’s talk at the law school. Now we learn that she has cried again.
Twice now she’s done it on the day before a major primary vote. Both times the poll numbers were trending negative at the time of the sniffles. Last time female voters went streaming back to her after they saw her emotion. Will tears gain sympathy for Hillary once again? Conventional wisdom was that any tears at all would damage her – make her look weak, but women voters responded positively last time in New Hampshire. Maybe they will again.
Then again, maybe twice is once to many.
Hillary vs. McCain is the one formula most likely to put (could it even be possible?) a Republican back in the White House next year. Read this and you’ll know why.
How is Hillary going to talk about her “experience” while standing next to a 30-year member of the Senate and a Vietnam POW who has taken fire on the field of battle? The Dems are afraid of McCain, just like the Republicans are afraid of Obama. Now that McCain has won Florida, it looks like he will be the nominee. Let’s see if the Democrats are foolish enough to pass up their best chance at victory in deference to the Clinton machine.
Interesting new national poll from Zogby shows Hillary and Obama essentially tied: 39-38%. Seems Hillary’s loss of support from black voters is really hurting her.
The story here.
It dismisses a potential Michael Bloomberg candidacy, citing that 60% said they were “very unlikely” to support a Bloomberg run. But I think the analysis is wrong. 19% said they were either “very likely” or “somewhat likely” to support him. And he hasn’t even decided to enter the race yet. Numbers like that will make Bloomberg more likely to enter. A few billion dollars later, he might have 30% of the vote – and then no one wins a majority in the electoral college and the House of Representatives gets to choose the next President, and… (deep breath)
Then again, New Hampshire taught us not to lend much credence to the polls. And the more Republicans find out about him the less they’re going to like him. But if more numbers like this keep coming, I predict that Bloomberg will be unable to resist. What a circus that would be.
