Releasing the Hounds
The gun has gone off, and the hounds have been released!
Hillary Rodham Clinton was trying like mad today to out Universal Health Care Barack Hussein Obama.
They each couldn't move their proposals to the left fast enough, having conflicting press conferences, and trying like mad to outmaneuver one another.
I think this is grand. And if the president manages to gain any traction with his bet-it-all approach to the war in the Mid-East, the Republicans just might - might mind you - have a means for making a come back by 2008, though some are already blushing at my optimism.
I really do think that people oppose the president for the following reasons:
1. He's a hard guy to like. He is not the most articulate person we've known in the White House.
2. He doesn't explain himself well, though the editorial page of the WSJ and the Weekly Standard do their best to try to explain him.
But I think really, people are frightened at the prospect of a long war where our kids are ground up in the meat grinder of that war that goes on ad infinitum.
That is why people oppose the president.
But if we were to see a shift in the pattern of success, I would wager the country would turn on a dime, and support the president. The Democrats would wonder what in the world had happened.
I do think it is a long shot, but it could happen. The key is whether General David Patraeus will be successful. It is my opinion that he will be successful, but we shall see.
