I try not to address the same subject in the same month, but having read an interesting opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal titled “The Hillary Moment”, and having recently presented my comments (11/11/11) on the same subject, I feel compelled to return to the same issue. If you missed it here is a link to noted Democrat pundits Patrick H. Caddell and Douglas E. Schoen’s opinion piece:
Allow me to pat my self on the back, I beat Caddell and Schoen to publication and we addressed the same subject from different angles. I feared Hillary would be the 2012 Democrat candidate, and Caddell and Schoen are urging the Democrat Party to have her as their candidate. Either way, the important point is that the Republican Party has a real fight on their hands and this race is theirs to lose and the Democrats to win. Anyone who thinks the 2012 General Election is going to be anything but a bloody negative fight is simply naïve.
The way the Republican Party has been fumbling the ball, the negative reaction to the influence of Grover Norquist, the internal fighting in the Republican Party, the failure of the Super Committee, and the strong credentials of Hillary Clinton I fear that she can beat any one of the current Republican candidates if the election were held today. Festering in the background are the unknown dangerous intensions of those loons in Iran who could turn everything upside down.
As Pat Caddell said on Fox News Channel, “Our President is AWOL and unengaged.” Time will tell.
