I normally refrain from political discussion both out of my disdain for the two-party system and out of acknowledgement of the fact that most people are more rabid with their political views than a dog with a porterhouse…
But after seeing all of the ridiculous dialogue in the press about how the GOP’s recent predictions that Hillary is inevitably going to beat Obama in the primaries mandates her victory, I had to chime in.
This article is a great example of what I am talking about: Hillary: More Inevitable Than You Think
How many times did Sen. Hillary Clinton’s name come up during Wednesday’s Republican debate in Michigan? Twelve.
How many times did Sen. Barack Obama’s name come up? Zero.
The bulk of the mentions came from Rudolph Giuliani, who many believe is using Clinton’s perceived inevitability to his advantage by declaring himself the Republican candidate best suited to defeat the New York senator in a general election.
Did anyone consider this would be a brilliant strategy to pick the easiest candidate to defeat in a general election – deny the possibility that her foes even have a shot?
Once again the Machiavellian nature of the GOP seems to be leaving the Dems grasping for straws…well, at least those who care about a healthy independent competitive presidential election.
I am sure the dynasty-minded are twiddling their fingers with glee.
