I am in Albany for Conservative Party’s Political Action Conference (CPPAC). Hope is last to die but folks know that 2008 looks dismal. It is interesting how many are sure that Hillary Clinton is THE Democrat candidate. I am hearing from thoughtful folks “in the know” that the Clintons set up Obama’s South Carolina victory to paint him as the “black candidate.” I wonder if the strategy will backfire.
After watching Obama’s Saturday evening victory speech I cannot believe the Obama can be painted as the Jesse Jackson candidate of 2008.
Rather, he sounds like the John F. Kennedy candidate of 2008. First sweet Caroline and now Uncle Ted have agreed. Lord help the Republicans if they have to face Camelot rebuilt. The Clinton’s are attacking but I think the ruins are being restored.
If so, Conservatives may be a long time in the wilderness.
