Painful Things I Hope Hillary Knows

Mark Halperin, of TIME magazine, posted a laundry list of factors affecting Hillary Clinton’s campaign. I think Mark did a great job of highlighting some of the most important pieces of criticism against the campaign, but the one that struck me above any else was:

13. Obama is having fun most days, and she isn’t.

This truly is an important factor in the campaign, and part of the reason that I believe young voters are so attracted to Obama. His campaign isn’t built on attacking Hillary (or any of his opponents for that matter), instead he’s winning votes by remaining a friendly and positive figure while having fun. As for Hillary, I’m beginning to wonder if her decision to remain in the race this long is becoming an issue of pride – sure, she’s been winning states over the last few weeks, but with political analyst after political analyst continually pointing out the flaws in her campaign, does she really have enough support to secure the nomination and win the vote in November? I’m confident that if Obama becomes the Democratic nominee, his campaign will continue to shine and continue having fun – is that not the ideal candidate choice?

  1. The only thing that could have been more fun than reading this list would have been to write it…and put your name on it…and know TONS of people would read it.

    On a serious note…#
    11. If she somehow found a way to win the nomination, she would have to offer Obama the veep slot, and she doesn’t want to do that.

    IF she were to be the Pres the VP spot would be filled…by her…come one who do you REALLY think will be President here?
