Why Hillary Will Lose

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , — Paddy Wallbouncer @ 9:13 am 2008 February 22

There are three front runners for the office of President of the United States of America. John McCain, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. There are pro’s and con’s off all three Candidates. Every four years it is the lesser of the evils. Here’s why Hillary’s probably not going to make it:

1. She Screams her points. Someone apparently got this message to Hillary. Do you remember the speeches from Iowa? People who are trying too hard to motivate an audience do that loud talking. Hillary clips always showed that screaming. Not becoming for anyone unless you are a popular dictator.

2. She’s overused desperate attacks. Yes, they are factual and true –even cute. “Well, I think that if your candidacy is going to be about words, then they should be your own words,” “And, you know, lifting whole passages from someone else’s speeches is not change you can believe in, it’s change you can Xerox.” “while you were defending slum lords…” It is important to make these points, but select a different venue or technique to drive the knife. Leave that to your spin people.

3. She thinks because they’re called debates that they are actual intellectual debates. Stop Debating. A professor would hands down give her a victory in every debate, but less than 1% of the US has a Phd. The debates are a game show unfortunately, “American Presidential Idol” -treat them as such.

4. She’s married to Bill Clinton. This is both her strong point and her weak point. It is amazing how polarized people can be about the Clintons. It would seem that she is just feeling the unbridled anger from people in the United States that have decided it is a mark of a poor leader to lie about an extramarital affair.

5. She was given bad advice from the beginning. The campaign manager was fired for two reasons. The first reason was so that Hillary could save face in a losing battle. The second reason was that the message was never presidential. The theme was too cerebral and muddled.

We’ll keep you informed of this and other entertaining news.
