Q&A Friday #32: Is Condi The Only One Who Can Beat Hillary?
Question: “Dick Morris continues to insist that the only person who could beat Hillary in ’08 is Condi. He also says that someone like Giuliani would never get nominated by the GOP and someone like George Allen would drive away too many independents. What do you think about all of that?” — WSOwen02
Answer: I think Dick has a book to sell because that is complete and utter bunkum.
Even a lot of the Democrats don’t believe that. Heck, she doesn’t even have Murtha on her side. According to the AP, Ole Cut and Run had this to say about her:
“He also said Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., could win the Democratic nomination for president in 2008, but that she would lose in the general election.”
Hillary is not invincible, she’s not a great candidate, she’s not even a good candidate. She probably ranges somewhere between average and slightly below average and if the Republicans run a halfway decent candidate, chances are, they’ll beat her — if she even gets the nomination — which is not assured, although she’s still the favorite.
