Re: Joe Guzzardi`s Blog: Joe to Hillary Clinton: Run As An Independent!
If Barack Obama gets blown out in November, Hillary Clinton`s, Quixotic insistence on pursuing the nomination past the point of logic could then become cast by her as a heroic effort to save the party from folly thus making her the 2012 "I told you so" frontrunner.
Clinton`s chances would probably be better in 2012 than now because if she challenges Obama as an Independent (or somehow steals the nomination this year) she`d lose the coveted black and first time voters.
Does Clinton know something we don`t? She and husband Bill don`t trust their futures to luck or chance.
Rossi`s previous letter about the Republican Party`s immigration problem is here.
Joe Guzzardi comments: According to reports, Clinton is scheduled to concede on Saturday. Why, I wonder, the wait?
Rossi makes a good point. But what if Obama wins in November? That`s at least a 50-50 proposition. Then Clinton becomes a very long shot in 2016. She would be effectively nowhere.
Clinton`s hour is now. If she were to run as an Independent, Clinton would carry both New York and California—not a bad way to begin a quest for the presidency. And she`d likely carry Ohio and Pennsylvania, too, states she won in the primary.
As I wrote in my above referenced blog, I`m not voting for any of them. But I do like the idea of the more, the merrier simply for amusement value.
