    election is Hillary Clinton because of her high negatives.Lets face it,too many voters just do not like this woman for whatever reason they might have,be it rational or irrational. We must accept this as the Democratic voters merrily go on to give her the nomination as seems so very likely at this time,if the polls have any credibility.

    Hopefully,the disgust with Bush will outweigh her huge negatives anyway but why take the chance when either Edwards or Obama are available,without her huge negatives.

      It seems the more the anti Hillary crowd here rail against her the more she advances. Day after day we get long diaries, postings etc. which are totally detached from reality. Very strange.

      She's a human being....

      Seriously, this isn't helping.  While Hillary isn't inevitable, if I had to place a bet, I'd have to put my money on HRC to win, probably by mid-February.  The question is, how can we help HRC win the general, not whether her high negatives will end up biting us in the ass.  We already know about those high negatives, the bullshit the Freepers never seem to tire of repeating, and all that, but large numbers of Democrats (not necessarily Kossacks) are choosing her anyway.  News flash - most of those people aren't here.  Go find them and convince them of the benefits of choosing your favorite candidate instead.

      Of course, if you're perfectly comfortable with President Guiliani (I'm not), go ahead and bash Hillary until your fingers are sore.  Don't say I didn't warn you.

      •  BUT she is a POLITICIAN (0+ / 0-)

        That makes her open game.

        As such we have the right to examine her stance and positions seriously. Love her, hate her - they are all immaterial.

        Disagreement is not dissent. Analysis is not vitriol. We have every right to fully examine these people running for office.

        This is not a popularity contest; this is a job interview.

        The point is not to find the best person to have a beer with, the best person to hang out with, it is the best person to fill the job.

        Frankly, I have serious issues with ALL the candidates. Don't even get me started on the Republican Candidates - I don't know what job they're looking for, but it sure isn't the President - head of Gitmo? Dunno.

        And seriously folks, she doesn't even know your name, much less that you exist.

        Never fall in love with a politician - you will be terribly disappointed.

        When war is considered to be more noble than peace - we have lost everything.
