    They myth of the Clinton's may be destroyed BEFORE the election. I have said many times Hillary could never be elected President - and I have openly hoped she would be the nomination

    Now if may ne, she will get knocked out during the primaries

    What a blow to her ego and the Clinton worshippers


    Polls see Obama gaining as Hillary appears waning
    By Donald Lambro
    THE WASHINGTON TIMES
    April 22, 2007

    The race for the Democratic presidential nomination has tightened significantly between Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, according to recent polls that show a sharp increase among voters who have negative opinions of the former first lady.
    The New York senator held on to her front-runner status last week, but pollsters and political analysts said she was losing strategic segments of her party's base, including younger, single women, liberals and independents.
    "The recent decline in her image appears to be broad-based, as it is evident among most key subgroups," the Gallup Poll said.
    Gallup's survey of registered voters last week found that Mrs. Clinton had lost her double-digit lead over Mr. Obama of Illinois, who now trails her by five percentage points.
    It also found that her favorability ratings had taken a nose dive.
    Mrs. Clinton's favorability score fell from 58 percent in February to 45 percent last week her lowest Gallup score since 1993. Fifty-two percent said they have a negative view of her candidacy. This compared with Mr. Obama, who had a favorability rating of 52 percent.
    "It's still early in the campaign and it's hard to bet against a Clinton. They're winners. However, the inevitability factor is no longer there," independent pollster John Zogby said.
    "What this means when you zero in on the key states, where the campaigns have begun in earnest, is that you have very competitive races and serious questions about Hillary's electability coming from Democrats," he said.
    But the Clinton camp dismissed the Gallup numbers Friday, focusing on other polls last week that showed her retaining a strong lead over her chief rivals.
    "We're gratified that this week's Washington Post and Fox News polls both show Senator Clinton with large leads, but we're taking nothing for granted and will work hard for every vote," Clinton campaign spokesman Blake Zeff said.
    Mrs. Clinton led Mr. Obama among Democrats, 37 percent to 20 percent, in the Post poll and 41 percent to 20 percent in the Fox poll.
    But Mrs. Clinton's weaker head-to-head numbers in the latest Gallup survey, together with her rising negative ratings, drew the most attention last week.


    "Hillary isn't wearing well. It seems as if the more people see her, the less they like her," Dick Morris wrote on the Town Hall Web site last week.
    "Now, for the first time, her low likability levels are costing her votes, as Democratic Party voters are abandoning her to support Barack Obama," said Mr. Morris, who served as a campaign adviser to former President Bill Clinton.
    Democrats appear to be moving away from Mrs. Clinton and toward her two strongest rivals, Mr. Obama and former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina, Mr. Zogby said.
    "Democratic voters right now say they want someone who stands for what they believe, and that points to Obama and to Edwards," he said.
    Mr. Obama has been calling for a new kind of politics that promises to unite the country, while Mr. Edwards had been running on an economic populism agenda that proposes a major expansion of the government's social welfare programs for poor and low-income Americans.
    Mr. Edwards, who has 16 percent support in the national Gallup poll, is running in first place in the latest Iowa caucus polls at 30.3 percent. He is followed by Mrs. Clinton with 26.8 percent and Mr. Obama with 19.5 percent.
    "When you look at Hillary's numbers in the state polls, and the fact that she has 100 percent name recognition among voters, the fact that she's polling in the 20s and low 30s is not good," Mr. Zogby said.

    Well the way I'm viewing this as if france gets a women president then we'll have to have one so we can be in line with a spineless nation.
    I did catch Larry King live last night even though it was taped and old from last week. But Bill Clinton was on the guest list and he made a few statements that put the democrats in a bad position about Iraq and pulling completely out with no exit strategy. Hopefully the liberals were listening because he made it clear you can't just leave and never look back.

    we still have a long time until this election is officially settled, but I said this before she (Hillary) wears her emotions on her sleeve and we need a leader who will stand up and make decisions for our nation for the good of the people and not because her feeling got hurt. That is a true sign of weakness and no matter how smart she may be it isn't good politics.

    facts now, and this is about Hillary and no-body else. I'm not satified she'll be our best line of defense for the years to come. And I wasn't being nasty about her like I normally would be.

    You sure do need a leader who will stand up and make decisions for your nation for the good of the people and not because his feelings got hurt. So why don't you impeach him? :rofl:
