Just a short post about Hillary Clinton. Drudge has this picture up this morning:
Howard Fineman is postulating that Hillary is in trouble:
Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign is teetering on the brink, no matter what the meaningless national horserace numbers say. The notion that she has a post-Iowa “firewall” in New Hampshire is a fantasy, and she is in danger of losing all four early contests, including Nevada and South Carolina – probably to Sen. Barack Obama, who is now, in momentum terms, the Democratic frontrunner.
Now I would never claim to be the most politically informed person around. Maybe one of the most opinionated–hey, deal with it. But I’d just like to remind people that Howard Dean was expected to dominate in Iowa last time around, yet Kerry kicked him to the curb like a two-dollar whore. (And then Howard got excited and the media crucified him for being passionate by branding it “the scream.”) Clinton has much of the same machine Kerry had working for him last time, and no pundit can possibly tell what’s going to happen.
I remain convinced that this election will be decided by the women voters. And I’d just like to impart a small piece of advice: those who lean too much on polls inevitably will fall down.
