Clinton No Bra Burner?
As I watched Chris Matthews proclaim Hillary Clinton the 2008 Democratic nominee for President, one of his Hardball panel members made a good point--can Clinton sustain the status of President-in-waiting for almost one year?
Although Matthews seemed confident in his prediction, the others conjured up alternate scenarios, if she wins Iowa, it''s over; if she doesn't win New Hampshire, she's got Iowa and if neither state gives her the red light, once South Carolina is under her belt, she is golden.
I'm a little sick of the press selecting our candidates, so with that said.....
One point made by a Hardballer--Clinton is more popular with young women than older women, citing the "M" word ("the Monica years") and inferring that 50% of women--Clinton's own age group--does not approve of the way she handled that situation during her First Lady White House days.
But does this Rebel with the White Gloves need her peer group to claim the Democratic nomination?
Or will the peer group send a message that Clinton is not the type of candidate to burn your bra over?
