It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally ready to admit that I’ve been wrong.
I’ve been hoping that Hillary Clinton would win the Democrats’ nod for the presidency and run against John McCain for president of the United States. I thought that she would be easier to defeat than Obama because of her high negatives and because of his ample charisma.
But I’ve come to realize that Obama is an intelligent buffoon, the most transparent kind of elitist, and a poor extemporaneous speaker. Hillary, by contrast, is a manipulative and unscrupulous competitor. If she were to come from behind to win the Democrats’ contest, that would be further proof of what we already know about her: she is hard to beat because she’ll do anything to win.
So as a conservative Republican I’m no longer hoping for a Clinton victory. I’m hoping that the easiest opponent will win, and that’s Barack Obama.
