As I stop in for a brief look, I see that Hillary's dominant status remains unchanged. The Republican field remains fractured and divided. Rudy might be in good with the Mob, but he still doesn't have the juice to beat Mrs. Clinton.
As I write this, we're just days away from the Iowa caucuses and the other State primaries. All of my predictions remain in tact and on track. the GOP is actually more fragmented now than it was at the time of my last post. The media is trying to provoke fights between Hillary and Barack, but that contest still does not appear to be in doubt. Financial pundits are soft-shoe-ing their way towards the recession that we already know is in our future. I think its imperative for those of us who can to actually go out and vote. You might not get the result you want, but you'll be more invested in what's going on, and what's coming.
She actually wants to create a law that if someones mom comes into a video game store and buys a rated "M" game for her child, and that child plays it, and then the mother objects to the game, the $5.50 an hour clerk can go to prison.
I'm hopeful that you'll see more of me on ATS in 2008.
In the mean time...Who in U.S. politics benefits the most from the killing of Benhazir Bhutto? It's been speculated for a long time on ATS that the Republicans might experience some kind of magical turn around if there were some major terror event to happen somewhere in the world. Was the Bhutto assassination such an event? I don't think so.
We should expect to see McCain get a bump, but it won't last beyond Iowa's caucus. If anyone benefits the most, it would be Hillary. Let me explain. We should expect Dem strategists to spin the Bhutto killing as one more failed Bush43 policy. Sympathy for Bhutto will translate in to some small degree of support for Hillary.
I don't think the Founders mucked us again. They handed us the best tool of government they could. We're the one's who have used it as a blunt instrument. I remain hopeful that we might yet see that wave of reform that I want so much. Unfortunately, things will have to get much worse before they can become even a little better.
Don Posted: But, whatever happens, Americans are STUCK until January 20, 2009, before we can take any effective action. We are off the world stage at a crucial moment in history for 13 months! Founding Fathers, you have mucked us again.
A terrorist attack on US soil would be a disaster for the Republican party because the notion that Bush has kept America safe post 9-11 would finally thrown out the window for good . Even if the US political system was fundamentally changed the same elected officials would corrupt the new system of governance so I don't how the US would be any better off.
