Hillary in 2012?

I read this article today in the Boston Herald. I thought that this indeed would be a game changer but would it be enough? Perhaps this is just a little wishful thinking on the part of the Democrats. After all, Republicans shouldn't be so selfish when it comes to hoping there is someone else out there to carry their torch in 2012:
This probably won’t go over too well down on Blue Heron Farm, but the Democrats’ best chance of keeping the White House next year may be to adopt Barack Obama’s old slogan, “change.”
And by change, I mean dumping Obama.
Presidents who preside over recessions usually don’t get re-elected. A president who has presided over the most devastating economic crisis since the Great Depression has even worse odds.
But Democrats do have a good opportunity to keep the White House, and her name is Hillary Clinton.
The former first lady is still beloved by most Democrats, but more importantly, she has deniability. While the economy has been tanking, Clinton has been jetting around the world worrying about foreign policy.
Can you imagine if Obama pulled a Lyndon Johnson and pulled out of the race before the convention, allowing Hillary to jump in? Republicans would suddenly face an opponent they can’t blame for Obama’s economic failures. Clinton would also energize disaffected voters in her own party. No elected Democrat would admit it publicly right now, but many — including a certain Massachusetts mayor and several members of our congressional delegation — feel she would have been a better president than Obama.
Read the rest of the article HERE.

All this WISHFUL THINKING going on from BOTH PARTIES reminded me of an old song. If only both parties could just learn to love the one they're with:
If you’re down and confused, and you don’t remember who you’re talkin’ to. Concentration slip away, ‘cause your baby is so far away.
Well there’s a rose in the fisted glove and the eagle flies with the dove, and if you can’t be with the one you love, honey, love the one you’re with, love the one you’re with, love the one you’re with, love the one you’re with.

I'm getting tired of the media playing up the 20% of Republicans still not satisfied. What about the 80 that are?

Does anyone look at poll data anymore? If you haven't, look who beats or is tied with Obama in the majority of states.

HE should be our nominee.

The Dems may have a better shot with Clinton, but that doesn't change anything.

Guilty by association.

All the wishful thinking in the world won't chane the facts.

Romney is our best chance at beating Obama
