I found an opinion article in the Wall St. Journal Online written by Pete DuPont. It's entitled:
Hillary Clinton for President
The secretary of state could mount a formidable challenge to Obama.Excerpt:
...Add together all these increases in government regulation, spending and taxes and a dim employment outlook, and the result is a dramatic national decline in support of the White House, Congress and their administration of our national policies.
So what can be done to change America's policies and make our economy stronger? For one thing, we could elect a president with different thinking. Almost any Republican candidate would have that, and, as we will see in a moment, there is one obvious Democrat who would change our course too.
And why would the Democratic Party want to do that? Because the re-election of President Obama is becoming more problematic...
Mr. DuPont lays out 6 factors "...that suggest she (Hillary Clinton) might have a chance of defeating President Obama if she were to challenge him for the 2012 Democratic nomination".
This may all be true, and Hillary could very well beat Obama in a presidential primary. But Americans must remember that Hillary Clinton is Barack Obama in a pants suit. I disagree with Mr. DuPont in his assessment that Hillary Clinton has "different thinking" than Barack Obama. She, along with Obama, share the philosophy of Saul Alinsky. Both are Progressives and their ultimate goal is the same...to "fundamentally change" America.
- The conclusion one hears from most "normal" American people is that the president "is in over his head, and out of his depth
- Hillary is physically and intellectually strong enough to take on a difficult campaign
- Hillary is one of the most experienced prospective candidates the Democratic Party has had in a long while
- Hillary is an experienced foreign-policy adviser
- Experience will be even more important to voters in the 2012 presidential election
- If Mrs. Clinton made the case that America must get rid of the huge debt the current administration has created, must create much better economic growth with lower tax rates, and must strongly assist employer job creation, she would appeal to a broad voter coalition.
We can not afford to make another mistake in 2012.
