to Iowa Democrats, who probably freed the national Democratic Party from slavery to the Clintons tonight.
The NH primaries take place on Tuesday. Independents can vote. They will disproportionately help Obama.
Obama is significantly to Hillary’s left, in my opinion. I am very far right, but I still think an Obama presidency will be much healthier for the country than another Clinton presidency. The Clintons’ entire career has been a running mockery of legal institutions (and by that I don’t mean Monica, I mean the frequent “suicides” of people uncomfortably close to them). The Clintons have been the worst thing to happen to the Democratic Party since Jimmy Carter blew the Teheran hostage rescue in 1980 and sent Reagan into the White House on a whirlwind that cost the Democrats 13 Senate seats. The Clintons’ continued dominance of the Democratic Party after 1994, 2002, and 2004 speaks volumes about the craven weakness which infects the Democratic establishment. Nobody will stand up and point out the Clintons’ legacy of disastrous failure.
If Clinton loses NH, she’s done, I think. Obama will sweep the South (the black vote has shifted heavily in his favor), and his Midwestern base. That should be enough.
The Republican Party, for its part, won’t have Hillary to kick around anymore. That implies a disastrous defeat in 2008, but a disaster is what has to happen for the GOP to purge its current elite.
The outcome, I think, will be two much healthier and more intellectually honest parties.
But in the shorter term, an Obama presidency will not be good for the dollar.
Also remember — Obama is George Soros’s man. Soros’s network gave Obama the financial firepower to torpedo the Clinton dreadnought. Soros will expect to be repaid.
