If the latest post Iowa poll is to believed, (and I have bad news for the Clintonistas, it's from Rasmussen- the best pollsters there are) Hillary Clinton is done. Stick a fork in her, turn out the lights etc.... etc..... etc.....
The latest poll from Rasmussen Reports shows that Obama has surged to a 10 point lead over Hillary in the granite state. If Hillary gets owned in NH like she did in Iowa, it's just over and that is all there is to it.
This is both extremely bad news and extremely good news for Republicans (and, as a consequence, America).
I was begging, in fact praying, that Hillary would be the nominee. There is no more hated, polarizing figure in politics and most of America would have crawled for miles over broken glass to vote against her.
Obama is far more affable, far more charismatic and (most importantly) far more unknown.
Obama will be an infinitely harder opponent to beat than Hillary. I still think we will do it, but it will not be easy.
There is no more hated, polarizing figure in politics and most of America would have crawled for miles over broken glass to vote against her. That apparently includes Democrats in Iowa and New Hampshire. This proves that the Clintons have left such a nasty stain on American history that even their own party now hates them.
Despite the fact that it may not be the best thing for Republicans, there is something utterly delicious about such a total and humiliating repudiation of Hillary and, by extension, Bill.
The Clintons, as a political force, are dead if Hillary loses New Hampshire.
They won't be missed. I assure you.
