“A year ago everyone had written Democrats off. The media had taken for granted the re-election of George Bush. Isn’t it fun to prove them wrong?”
–Hillary Clinton (in an e-mail to potential Democratic donors)
First off, maybe Hillary hasn’t looked at a calendar in awhile. The election is still about six months away. Second, if proving the media wrong is your raison d’etat, you’ve got a pretty weak argument for being elected. It sounds kind of like she just bought a new hat – ‘Isn’t it fun? It goes great with these new pearls.’
Bush stinks, yes. But, there are a whole lot of people out there who still may think he’s the lesser of two evils. My question is – if John Heinz is elected, do we all get free mustard with our ketchup?
