Condi, on the other hand, has one weakness, despite her considerable talent and intelligence. She has never run for office before. The Presidency is rarely an entry leval job, with the exception of successful Generals like Washington, Grant, and Eisenhower.
Still, what a wonder race Condi vs Hillary would be. I agree with Morris' premise to this extent--Condi would almost certainly beat Hillary. An African-American, Conservative woman who has risen on her own talent becoming President would just be too potent an idea to resist. But a man with political experience on the bottom part of the ticket--say George Allen or Mitt Romney--and Condi would win by a landslide, changing the face of American politics forever and extending the Democrats' stay in the wilderness for many more years.
How do you do it, Mr Morris? Any more fortune-telling like this and we'll start to think you have access to a time machine, or magic beans! Who will be challenging Romney for the Presidency in 2016? I'm sure Mr Morris knows, because he has the Real Polls, and I for one can't wait to read all about it in his next book.
All over America, black leaders are wondering how in hell they are going to explain to their constituents that voting for a white woman from Wellesley will advance the cause of blacks more than voting for a black woman from Birmingham, Alabama. To their credit, many of these leaders will realize that this argument is untenable, a dog that just won't hunt. They will drop Hillary like a hot potato and throw their support behind Condi.
Ironic. The Dems have spent the last 40 years cultivating the black vote. They now get 9 out of 10 black votes. If Condi runs, it could go 9 out of 10 the other way. Think that's an exaggeration? Think again. Recall the jubilation that took place in the "black street" when OJ, a real scoundrel, was acquitted of murder charges. Now imagine the jubilation that will break out in the black street when Condi, a national treasure, is elected the first black President of the United States. The following consideration will be weighed in the mind of every black voter standing in the voting booth on Election Day in 2008: "By my vote I can put the first African-American in the White House; am I going to pass up this opportunity and vote for Hillary instead???"
And then, think about how women will vote. First off, Condi's views on abortion mirror precisely those of the majority of women in America today: she is pro-choice, but in favor of reasonable restrictions on abortion.Read more ›
Dick Morris contends that Hillary Clinton is almost certain to be the Democrat nominee. He reviews several of her possible opponents and makes a strong case for why each one will not be nominated.
Morris' analysis is that either Rudi Guiliani or John McCain might have the broad appeal to win the election, but that neither one is conservative enough to win the Republican primary. The authors also analyze several other possible Republican candidates and demonstrate why they probably could not beat Hillary.
After dismissing several likely candidates, the authors contend that Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is the best bet to both win the Republican nomination and defeat Hillary Clinton in the general election. They analyze voting demographics in making their case and show how there would likely be huge shifts away from Hillary among Blacks, women, and Hispanics if Dr. Rice were the candidate.
The place where this scenario falls apart is that the Secretary of State has said that she has no interest in running for the presidency. Unlike with Ms. Clinton, if Dr. Rice says it, she likely means it. Also she is currently serving in a more than full time job which would make campaigning very difficult, if not impossible. The authors take care of this 'small' problem by showing how she could be drafted for the job by a spontaneous grass roots movement much like happened to Dwight Eisenhower 50 years ago.
Although I think such a movement is very unlikely to just happen, the book makes an interesting read and certainly gives one food for thought.Read more ›
