Feet of Clay

Hillary has admitted "I wasn't at my best the other night." The other night being the last debate, during which she flubbed a question about public exposure of her husband's records kept in the national archives and flip-flopped on the question of whether to give drivers licenses for illegal aliens. She is wrong. She really didn't do badly in the debate. She did obfuscate on the previously mentioned questions, but she did fairly well in the rest of the debate (which I sat through. Give me credit for being able to stomach an hour of watching Hillary, Obama, and Edwards going at it). Given that Edwards and Obama were supposed to launch their individual anti-Hillary offensives, she emerged unscathed from their attacks.Her mistake was in her persistant clarifications and complaints of bias. The debate was a week ago- and is still in the news. If Hillary had just let it go, it would probably be forgotten by now.

This sort of simple mistake is a liability for Clinton. When she wins the nomination, she will have far tougher problems than these to solve. If she can't even mitigate the damage done by this relatively insignificant gaffe, what will she do with all the pressures of a general election?

I compliment your strong stomach to sit through an hour of Ms. Clinton and opponents. She is certainly fortunate in her opposition ... but will the Democrats really give her the nomination? Nothing will put energy in the sparkless Republican campaign no much as a Hilary nomination.

What about what will she do under pressure of an imminent attack on America or a national crisis as well?!?

Hillary is the master at not answering questions.

She isnt going to have to make executive decisions because we are all going to do our best to see she doesnt make it to the White House :-)
