Sorry...I aint with you this time, Drudge
Not to say it can't happen. But I don't see that woman being second banana to anyone. Period. She wants all the power and prestige. And the fact is that he's running a very weak campaign. Any other president that received the media attack that Bush has gotten would be dead in the water. Instead, he's running neck and neck, and a building economy and the Iraq handover is NOT good news for the Democrats.
But then again, maybe she realizes that her little run in New York is about to be over. Whether it's against Pataki or Guiliani in 2006, it's going to be a dogfight for her to be reelected, and she can't afford to lose that race. If she is able to put Kerry over the top, then she would get accolades for becoming the first woman vice-president. But, if she loses, well...at least she still has her job, and she and her lackeys can blame Kerry for being inept.
One good thing about this? Bush and Cheney would not play games like Rick Lazio did. Lazio let her and the NY media intimidate him after that first debate. That won't work for Dick Cheney, especially with his "silent aggression" technique where he dismantles opponents with a soft voice. And we possibly get to hear about those Rose Law Firm Billing Records
, along with Pardongate
, that Hillary slimed her way out of.
Bush and Cheney need to realize they are at dire straits right now. The Democrats smell blood, and they are starting to bring out the heavy weapons. The media has been wacking down Bush's popularity ratings, and they aren't going to let go of the onslaught anytime soon. Moore's propagandist fictional movie is out, and it made $21 million over the weekend. More than likely that DNC convention will allow Kerry to help take a solid lead in the polls. This is not the time to try to be the better man. It's time to be the winning man, and the only way you're going to do that is to let the people know who Kerry and the Democrats really are.
"The Coalition of the Wild-Eyed"
was cute, but you're going to have to do better. As much as you probably still cringe at the 92 Convention, you're going to have to rely on some of that rhetoric in order to win this election. Stop holding back and get it done.
