critical reading for the rude

should you want to beat Hillary

There are some tips.  My favorite observation:

3. Stay behind your podium. When Rick Lazio invaded Mrs. Clinton’s personal space during one of their debates in the 2000 Senate race, he made her look vulnerable. Lazio learned the hard way that a vulnerable Mrs. Clinton is a popular Mrs. Clinton. “Oh, do I remember the first focus group after that happened,” says Bill Dal Col, Lazio’s campaign manager. “[They said] ‘he reminds me of my ex-husband.’”

  1. The fact is that NO ONE who had made it to the point to be considered a contender in a presidential race is motivated by anything but the acquisition of power. This is something that should be kept in mind. She will not win, not because she’s a woman, but because she likes to tell other people that she knows what is best for them. While all politicians do this, they at least cover it up with other motives… she seems not to. Time will tell, but I’m pretty good at predicting who’s going to be president, and I don’t see her doing it.

    Man is it a long time until the election.

  2. I’m waiting and seeing. But man did she rankle us with that health care stuff in the 90s. Maybe we’re ready to listen now, as our parents retire and ill exponentially? She gives me the creeps, frankly, as the lot of them do… but I’m watching and waiting. Predictions? Richardson rises to outrank Edwards, at least.
