80. In a way, Bush has something to do with it, and I believe this is it.
My dad told me when the primary season was about to start (before Iowa): "The only reason why Hillary Clinton and that guy Obama have a chance in hell to win the presidency is because George W. Bush sucks so much that Americans will ignore the fact that she's a woman and he's black- No Republican will win in 2008 after what GWB has done to this country and to the World, and both Clinton and Obama know it."

And, to a certain extent, he's right. I think both Clinton and Obama knew they had a bigger chance of winning this year because W has ruined the GOP. Many of their supporters knew it too. It had to be THIS year. This moment. Had Bush done a good job in the WH, chances of Hillary or Barack winning the presidency would have been much smaller.

For many Hillary supporters, there might not be a moment like this in many years... it was like an opening...
