Rove says Hillary will win 08 Primary but Lost General Election
Edited on Mon Feb-27-06 12:10 PM by RamboLiberal
Sorry it's Sludge - but hey figured you all could use a Monday Laugh!

http://www.drudgereport.com/flash3ws.htm

Reporter Bill Sammon, who joins the WASHINGTON EXAMINER as Senior White House Correspondent, is set to launch his new book, STRATEGERY.

In the Book, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned, Rove is quoted on the-record and is unleashed on Hillary:

There is a brittleness about her that could prove a weakness in November 2008.

But Rove added that the hard-driving Clinton will easily vanquish Democratic primary rivals like New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner, who are merely preening for the vice presidential slot.

President Bush cautioned that Hillary Clinton should not be underestimated.

She is a smart person, and obviously has got a lot of experience, the president said in an exclusive interview for the book STRATEGERY, which is being published Monday. It is helpful, to a certain extent, to have seen the presidency and presidential campaigns firsthand.

:puke: Alert

4. Personally, I think if Senator Clinton runs...
we will have four more years of Republican rule. Just my opinion.

8. I agree with you - I hope for the sake of the Democratic Party
she doesn't run cause I think unfortunately she is too galvanizing to some dumb ass voters out there. And I'm not particulary thrilled with her as a Dem either.

And as an American can't we pick someone either than a Bush or a Clinton? Preferably Dem of course.

That said I do think she would be a good president.

6. I don't agree with Rove about
the specific reasons why, but he is probably right about the general election. Hillary cannot win it. Too many people hate her guts.

Gore and Kerry have already shown that they cannot win. (Yeah, yeah, I know all the arguments, but who, exactly, is in the White House today?)

There may be some other good Dem candidates out there, but for my money (unless something new comes up, or somebody breaks out of the pack) Clark is da man.

10. Hillary will win the primaries if
the polls are fixed to let her win.

Don't underestimate Rove's powers of "prediction." They're backed by the means to make things happen.

15. Oh, I think she'll
win the primaries, all right Rove won't even have to get involved. but she can't win the general election, and Rove won't have to get involved there, either.

Clark, however, can win, IMHO, if he can just get past the primaries.

7. So...
Karl already knows a candidate who hasn't even said whether she's running or not IS running, is winning the primary, and losing the general election. Don't the voters have any say in even one step of this process?

9. Since when did KKKarl run the Democratic party?"
I am sure that he already has the Diebold machines programed to make sure that bu$h gets a third term but, how can he tell us who is going to be the nominee?

13. Driver8 says that "KKKarl should keep his big mouth shut."
Driver8 went on to add that, "KKKarl is a traitor and a piece of shit. Not only that, but he looks like Mr. Weatherbee from the Archie comics."

(I stole the Mr. Weatherbee idea from a previous post)

16. This is flame bait for the Hillary haters - Dem and Repub
Some quasi-Democrats (at best) don't care about the source. Just a platform to launch their same old, same old.

17. Just more proof they are trying to push her on us
I even wonder if she's running sometimes. :shrug: She's been too quiet. She's not as out there as other democrats like Kerry, Feingold, Biden and Lieberman.

18. I don't agree that the GOP is trying to push her on us
as a matter of fact I think they fear her most.

However, I am fully behind allowing Hillary to be their whipping boy (girl) as subterfuge for our other candidates.

Whip her, whip her good.

23. Rove may be whistling past the graveyard on '06
From Sludge's article:

As for the 2006 congressional elections, Rove was upbeat.

Republicans will keep the House, Republicans will keep the Senate, he predicted. The question is, what will be the margin? Will we gain a couple of seats? Will we lose a couple of seats? Will we lose more than a couple seats? Im frankly very optimistic.
