4. Two ways to look at it.
Some will say and with good reason. Faux is pushing HRC
because this gives the GOP a better chance to win the election.
Today on CNN a strategist for GOP explained the winning
strategy for them.

l. Cool down the War in Iraq. (Have enough good news coming
out of Iraq that people will be willing to be patient)

2.Have HRC as Democratic Nominee.(Rallies their party--esp the
base. Creates excitement for their party.

I am just repeating a Republican Strategist. I did not get
his name.

There is another way to look at the Fox support for Hilary.
Perhaps they are hedging their bets. If it is their fate
that Democrats win, who would they most honestly want in
the WHite House. A strong case can be made that HRC would
be the thinking Republicans' choice. Think about it --War Issues,
Business Support, Her centrist credentials make her the
most likely candidate . This is in no way critical. Reality
is reality. She garners respect from the Republicans in House
and Senate.

Take your choice.
