I have watched the current administration with apprehension over the last 8 years. I am convinced Clinton's campaign is of the same mind-set. The campaign totally hypes up irrelevent figures. Clinton's campaign fails to acknowledge the overall reality of the situation. Finally Hillary's campaign seeks to destroy opposition. These characteristics leads me to believe America may be faced with Bush III just with A (D) as its main difference.

Bush actively propagandized the need for war in Iraq. In similar fashion clinton cries toward the disenfranchisement of FL and MI. As recently as yesterday, clinton in florida, compared the punishment of Renegade state to the civil rights movement. Claiming she would be the champion for the disenfranchised. Bush also claimed to be saving the world from a mushroom cloud. Such would be great, if it there was an outcry for assistance. Neither Florida nor michigan sought to alter their reckless stance. The lawless states refused to follow DNC rules. So Clinton's grabbing the mantle and leading the charge for civil rights (as if I could be denied housing, a job, or voting because I'm from Florida)is a laughable; it is far removed from reality.

The reality is Clinton failed accept the losing campaign. Her campaign was a collosal failure. Her advisor's, whether she chose for loyalty or for their strategic brillance, failed to deliver a crucial vote in Iowa. Iowa is a small but important state; it went to her opponents. Hillary came in third in Iowa. Her people failed to deliver that vote; it showed how vulnerable she was. The campaign also failed to factor in the possibility that the contests would turn to a 2 man race. They never contemplated Edwards would drop. Edward suspended his campaign. Team Clinton did not organize for that scenario. Having failed on so many levels The Clinton machine switched to a different mode.

Attack, feral beasts do it when they are cornered. Bill Clinton's Major disaster was his compairing Obama to Jackson and Sharpton. He wanted to destroy Obama's Momentum. Hillary's emphasis of her and mccains experience versus Obama's Speech was another attack. Clinton took another route to undermine Obama on 60 minutes with her now famous "I take him at his word .... as far as I know" the "Obama is a Muslim lie". Her "Kitchen Sink" strategy is another entire wave of attacks. The Bush administration has done the same as well, Plame, Seigelman,Hans Blix are just several names of those who opposed the administrations endgame.

Nixon, Bush, Clinton all share the same seige mentality. No one must speak out. We punish offenders. We have the right plan,trust us. We are winning our war on (terror, Obama). The Clinton machine is just as vicious nasty and determined as team bush was. Neither Bush nor Clinton has demonstrated competency.
