Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton
It’s Star Wars but not in a galaxy far away, no its happening right here on planet earth during the campaign for the 2008 elections! David Geffen, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, and George Soros all are attempting to use their "Force" to influence events around who the next Democratic Presidential nominee will be, its big Liberal money and insidious politic manipulation which will be the determinate in choosing who will carry the Presidential banner for the Democrats.
Clinton or Obama, Obama or Clinton, will Hillary’s negatives be to stifling for Democrat support? Will Obama’s inexperience prevent Democrats from embracing his candidacy?
The most influential and popular woman in TV has said that Barak Obama is her guy and is putting all the force of her endorsement behind his candidacy.
While other Hollywood illuminates are aligning behind their political choice Democrats are polling to see if the Democrat front runner has any dreaming chance of winning the Presidency.
Two in five people recently polled by The New York Times hold an unfavorable view of Hillary Clinton and of those with an unfavorable view, 71 percent have a "strongly unfavorable" view, while those with a favorable view aren't as passionate.
In another recent poll, more than half of respondents said they wouldn't consider voting for Clinton in the November 2008 election.
In the recent Times poll, for instance, 46 percent said they would definitely vote for her or consider voting for her, while 34 percent said they would definitely not vote for her.
If Clinton still has high negative numbers once the primaries start in January, Democratic voters in primaries and caucuses might vote against her even if she is their preferred nominee. Out of the White House for eight years, Democrats are hungry for a winner. They don't want a candidate who can't deliver the general election. –J. Patrick Coolican, Las Vegas Sun
Will Oprah’s endorsement cause Hillary the black vote and the women’s vote? One thing is for curtain, with such high negatives Hillary can ill afford to lose these two voters blocs and remain a viable candidate.
Can a Oprah endorsement deliver a presidential nominee and are Hillary’s negatives so impacting that Democrats will jettison her if they feel that her candidacy in 2008 will cause them to lose the White house?
With no more Bush to kick around Democrats will be forced to look at their own faults for a change. They may even come to the conclusion that the “anybody but” meme, is fitting for someone who Democrats wouldn’t even vote for in their own primaries.
“Anybody but Clinton,” now that would be ironic wouldn’t it? Maybe that’s the message that Oprah has already sent.
