What a difference a year makes … from The Obamamessiah to the Obamapariah.
One year into Barack Obama’s Presidency and news outlets like CNN are floating the premise of Hillary Clinton running against Obama in the 2012 Democrat Primaries. On CNN’s Cafferty Report, Jack Cafferty urges Hillary Clinton to challenge Obama in 2012.
“A lot of Democrats are worried about the ongoing decline of President Obama’s approval ratings. When you add in the recent losses by Democrats in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts and the Presidents unsuccessful bid so far to get health care reform … well it has some of the Democrats running for the hills.”
What’s telling is that Jack Cafferty says he hopes Hillary runs which seems to be more than just for the media story. It would appear many in the liberal media are no longer enamored with the Chosen One.
Recently Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated she was not interested in running for President again; however, she also said that she would be a one term Secretary fo State. However, if Republicans as all accounts show destroy the Democrats in the 2010 midterms, take over the House and gain 6, 7 or 8 Senate seats would Hillary bolt the SS Obama sinking ship in a run up to take Barack on as a way of saving the Democrat Party?
Could Hillary Clinton challenge a weakened and poll challenged Obama as Ted Kennedy did with President Jimmy Carter in 1980?
Cafferty says he would love to see the rematch; however, I would second the motion of Freedom’s Lighthouse that the White House is hardly looking forward to any such thing.
Scott Rasmussen, please poll this hypothetical rematch!
