She's had more than a 30 point negative poll swing in two months. Are you fucking kidding? If that is not a meltdown, perhaps you could explain what would qualify as one?
She's losing to Obama because she's too conservative for what the voters want this time around.
Well, that is ONE reason, I agree. It's not THE reason.
The incompetence of GWB and the shortsightedness of the Republicans (and Democrats) who supported him is the very reason Hillary is losing.
That doesn't even make much sense.
American voters are still not ready for someone like Kucinich or Gravel or Dean, but they are sick of kisseurs-de-Republican-ass like Hillary, and would rather have someone like Obama taking charge for a change.
OK, I agree there. The problem is it's not about him being more liberal than her. It's about Change(TM) and Hope(R). He is, in fact, more liberal, but people don't even know it for the most part. Ask any 10 people...ANY 10 PEOPLE...and 9 of them will not be able to tell you one thing he's done or stands for other than Change, Hope and The Future. I've done it myself...it's absolutely mind boggling. It's the same answer when you ask why someone is voting for Obama. It's never, ever a specific policy position or set of them. It's an answer like "because it's a feeling he will change things." It sure as hell isn't his more liberal stances.
