“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Elected, not annointed

Fresh off her embarrassing defeat in Iowa and down by 10 points in New Hampshire, Hillary will do one of two things if she loses there next week: either she'll fold the tents and her moment in the sun will be thankfully over, or she'll revert to what the Clintons know best, character smear. I'm not fan of Obama(see my previous post below), but the guy has a lot of young people fired up that would have otherwise been Clinton supporters.

I can't remember who observed it first but as of Thursday, the Clintons no longer have a strangle hold on the democrat party. I believe if she cannot win in New Hampshire, the rats will bail from that sinking ship like......well, like rats from a sinking ship. Hillary's political popularity is based on the cult-of-personality that explained Bill's success. That cult has shifted to Obama and Hillary is clinging to the shreds of Bill's coattails that she's ridden up until now. Hillary can't do it on her own and people don't want another 4-8 years of the Clintons. Both Obama and Clinton are dyed in the wool European, nanny-state socialists. The only difference Barak Obama is new and fresh and that's making the difference right now.
