"Her tailspin began when he got off the airplane in Iowa and started running around making 3-hour speeches about himself..."

Opposite rudder, pop the stick forward.

Her tailspin started when she decided to run. Her death spiral started when he got off the plane...

A death spiral is a pilot orientation failure. The correction applied to fix the situation makes it worse instead.

You get into it in about a minute flying in fog without instruments ; as a passenger you're not affected because you take your orientation from what the pilot does; but it's fatal if the pilot tries that.

Who was more disappointed at the third place finish, Bill or Hill?

How long have we been force-fed:
Bill is the key to her success?
Bill is adored therefore people want more Clinton.
Hillary will ride Bill into the WH.

Bunk!
Anyone with an ounce of honesty knows that the Hillary express blew a tire when Bill showed up, and I'll bet that from here on in, we'll see a lot less of Bill.

Sometimes its hard to be a woman
Giving all your love to just one man
You'll have bad times
And he'll have good times
Doing things that you don't understand
But if you love him you'll forgive him
Even though he's hard to understand
And if you love him
Oh be proud of him
'Cause after all he's just a man

Stand by your man
And tell the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can
Stand by your man

Ahhh more drivel from the Rush Limbaugh big tent of non-factual facts.

Hillary would beat the GOP field like a rented mule and you Geo-Pee-Rs are now just consumed with the possibility that both Obama and Clinton will beat them and Edwards, for all the distrust you give him (don't you like his looks? or his success? or his message?..or do you just dislike him because he has class?)does well head to head ...so whoever is the nominee, the party will unit and the Gee-Opee-Rs will be faced with born-agains v. non-born-agains...

If you have any clue as to how this thing will play out, the dems brought out over 2:1 voters in a Bush state..and that is the key statistic. That is energy and a majority of people who are just sick to death of republican (lack) of leadership.

IA is a Bush i.e. Republican state? News to me, and our Democrat Governor Chet Culver and majority Democrat Legislature, four Democrat Congressmen (out of five), Democrat Senator-for-Life Tom Harkin, Al Gore (who won in 2000), Bill Clinton (who won IA in both '96 and '92).

HD,

It's apples and oranges. The two parties use different processes, and the GOP one is non-binding, thus less important and less attended.

Drill Sgt...

Ahhhh thanks. I knew there was a perfectly innane reason why no one cares about the GOP candidates.

hdhouse-

A little touchy, aren't you? And by the way, whatever happened to LOS? Did he run out of spleen?

hdhouse: Where to begin?
"...consumed with the possibility that both Obama and Clinton will beat them"

Well....yeah. That's kind of the point of an election. Just like whoever the nominee on your side will be consumed with the possibility of loosing to the Republican.

"Edwards, for all the distrust you give him (don't you like his looks? or his success? or his message?..or do you just dislike him because he has class?)"

Ok, trying to navigate this "thought", but I personally have issues of a success built on cherry picking malpractice cases and channeling dead babies, but that's me. His message is that I am bad only because I am in the top 50% income bracket and that he will be taking my money from me. So yeah, it would be his message. Have you not been paying attention?

"If you have any clue as to how this thing will play out, the dems brought out over 2:1 voters in a Bush state..and that is the key statistic."

You DO know that Iowa keeps sending Tom Harkin to the Senate, right?
You also understand this is the Iowa Caucus and is generally meaningless. Or are you under the impression that President Dean is coming up for re-election?

It's the oddest thing...yesterday was good day for the Dems. And yet, they're posting all over the internet like sore losers.

Ed Rollins disease?

IA is a Bush i.e. Republican state?

I assume he's referring to the fact that Bush beat Kerry there, 49.94% to 49.27%. Like all of the local leftie trolls, HD equates "favors a Republican over a Democrat by even the tiniest amount" with "hard-core right-winger" -- thus, by his reasoning Iowa is "a Bush state".
