Political Fallout: Will Hillary be the next Nader?
Excerpted from this post at Political Fallout
Recent history indicates that the Democrats have been successful at
one thing: losing presidential elections. As Americans face the
prospects of never-ending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, an economy
that has tanked, the foreclosure crisis, health care costs still
growing exponentially in relation to inflation, and myriad other
indicators that spell out political D-O-O-M for the incumbent's party,
this year's presidential election is the Democrat's to lose. But don't
underestimate the Democratic Party, which has been saddled with the
historic curse of losing the presidency to George W. Bush not once,
but twice. When in doubt, leave it to the Democrats to snatch defeat
from the jaws of victory.
