Strategically speaking, what is left of the opposition to Hillary?
This past weekend Hillary defanged the remnants of the divided opposition to her at the Big Blogs. The Big Blogs thought she would never dare speak to them and that if she did they would destroy her. The opposite has happened. Hillary remains unscathed.
Her supposed big opponent from long ago, John Edwards, is reduced to small potatoes insider complaints regarding fundraising. He too has been neutered as an opponent. Fairly or not he is viewed as a hypocrite regarding hedge funds, his house and his hair cuts at campaign expense.
Her latest supposed big opponent, Barack Obama, has squandered his entire campaign message.
Obama was supposed to be the “clean” and “fresh” advocate of “new” politics. Instead Obama has been exposed as a peddler of anonymous memos, a close friend of an indicted slumlord, and a smear artist.
Obama was supposed to be the antiwar candidate. Now he is known as O Bomb A (check out this article which actually uses this appelation we coined months ago. Also Check out the picture of Obama with a nuclear explosion coming out of his head.)
