Hatin’ On Hill October 29, 2007

IT’S A VAST BOTH-WING SOMETHING OR OTHER, PEOPLE

FITSNews – October 29, 2007 – It seems no matter where you turn this week, somebody’s hatin’ on Hillary Clinton. Whether it’s Barack Obama and John Edwards taking her to task on Social Security, or former GOP frontrunner John McCain popping her for supporting a taxpayer-funded Woodstock Museum, the bulls-eye on Mrs. Clinton’s back is starting to take some serious arrows lately.

McCain’s South Carolina staff is even including the tagline “the only conservative who can beat Hillary Clinton” on all of its outgoing campaign e-mails.

So what gives? Why’s everybody hatin’ on Hill all of a sudden?

Well, for Clinton’s Democratic rivals, it’s all about cutting into Hillary’s ridonkulously large lead in the polls. Both Obama and Edwards pledged to run clean, “different” campaigns focusing on what they would do as President (as opposed to what anybody else would or wouldn’t do), but it’s clear the Clinton juggernaut has forced them to alter, if not completely abandon, that strategy. For McCain, it’s all about using anti-Clinton rhetoric to climb back into the top tier of an increasingly competitive (and caustic) GOP primary field.

Personally, we think Clinton would be a disaster in the Oval Office, but it’s tough to deny that her campaign is in the driver’s seat at the moment, forcing candidates in both parties to take shots at her in an effort to boost their own numbers.

Even GOP frontrunner Rudy Giuliani took a pop at Clinton this week, probably hoping to fend off critics who insist he’s a lot like her.

Ridonkulously large lead? Rudy as GOP frontrunner?

Say, when’s national primary day?

Oh wait – there is no such thing as a national primary. So why talk about national polls? They’re irrelevant.

The latest poll out of Iowa has Hillary up 29-27 on Obama (within the margin of error) with Edwards in 3rd with 20.

The same poll has Rudy tied for second in Iowa with Huckabee at 13 percent, with Mr. Electable Fred Thompson in third with 11. Romney’s got a much more commanding lead in Iowa than Hillary does, and yet Romney gets treated like a third-rate candidate for some reason. Judd Gregg is endorsing him in New Hampshire. Mitt Romney is going to be the GOP nominee.

Come on now. You know better than to get involved in all this national poll crap.
