In this conservative manifesto, New York Post columnist Podhoretz feeds the partisan flames with this splash of gasoline: not only is Hillary Clinton intent on running for president in 2008, but she has every chance of winning. Claiming that Hillary's presidential aspirations represent "a colossal threat to the nation's economic viability and its national security," Podhoretz lays out a plea and a plan for conservative action. With a blunt style and a knack for clear-eyed examination of the political horizon, Podhoretz stirs up conservative panic by explaining how Hillary's "high negatives" can work in her favor (employing the old "there's no such thing as bad publicity" angle), and how her distasteful feminism (as well as her distasteful husband) effectively innoculate her from criticism. Podhoretz offers a "Ten Point Plan" to beat Hillary in 2008, a strategy that involves forcing Hillary to go on the record in defense of unpopular liberal positions, resisting the splintering of the Republican party over delicate social issues, and nominating for president a moderate Republican with broad appeal-namely, Rudy Giuliani. Strident but incisive, Podhoretz warns that "Bush's triumph in 2004 may be unduplicable," a statement that should mobilize conservatives to assure that the Clintons don't get back into the White House.
