Hillary's Math Problem

Today in The Hill, Clinton Advisor and Republican fair—weather consultant Dick Morris prophesied

'A [2008] Hillary Clinton candidacy would obviously help them to regain the fierce loyalty of their base, but she would also bring in millions of single women voters who would support her candidacy by huge margins.'

What Dick doesn't mention is Hillary can mobilize another demographic of voter: men divorced and married.

Recall Hillary's recent grilling of Donald Rumsfeld.

'You are a failure and you should resign right now....'

The average guy said 'she sounds just like my mother—in—law or my ex—wife' or both. Do the math. We are told 50% of all marriages end in divorce for both Democrats and Republicans. No real man will vote for anyone who reminds him of why they split the community property. The typical married guy is reminded by his mother—in law that his wife's old boyfriend is now a Doctor or Lawyer or both. Who would vote for their mother in law to be in the Bully Pulpit?

Mathematically Hillary's negatives cut across party lines for 50% of all voters They say that the difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits. Today Dick was too smart by half.

Can't wait for 2008.
