  •  List of Hillary mistakes: (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    1. didn't plan for after Super Tuesday;
    1. listened too much to advisers and not to her gut feel (assuming she has some);
    1. agreed to plant questions and to call on those questioners (you guys should really see the interview with the girl who asked the planted question: girl who was asked to plant a question);
    1. was the 'entitled' candidate rather than agent of change;
    1. top-down campaign versus using both (top and bottom);
    1. had bad timing: negative when it was inappropriate: cackle and saying something like 'we'd like to hear that'; 'xerox remark'; obama and kindergarten dreams attack;
    1. putting down people and states who voted for Obama as duped and unimportant;
    1. not apologizing for Iraq vote as if doing so will make her appear weak instead of able to learn from her mistakes.

    Feel free to add more.

    •  9. Dismissiveness (2+ / 0-)

      Obama pointed this out in the debate with his you are implying my supporters are delusional. This may have been a mistake on his part. The Clinton campaign does not get how offensive that is to people. Voters start off liking both candidates but as their attention gets focused on the election in their State they hear obama's inspirational message and compare it to her dismissive attitude toward message they gravitate toward him.

      As they move in his direction Hillary's dismissiveness is more annoying and she loses them completely and since they are offended they tell their friends to support obama. The dissastified customer tells more people about the bad experience. Same dynamic is at work here and the Clinton campaign just does not get it.

      •  And even more dismissive toward Republicans. (0+ / 0-)

        Can you imagine a male Republican going cross-over to vote for Mrs. Clinton ???

        Or more than a handful of under-55 women GOPpers crossing over ?

        Obama regularly pulls 5% - 8% of the GOP vote where they can cross over.

        He beat Ron Paul in a couple of those primaries.

        Dixie Chicks, Amy Winehouse, Imus, and Lenny Bruce. Overcome evil with good.
