  •  Obama didn't win coz he was "unusually talented" (1+ / 0-)

    He won because the Democratic base revolted at the thought of another Hawk representing our party 4 years after the Kerry debacle.  He won because thousands of liberal activists who were tired of seeing their party move further and further to the right were willing to throw their money at somebody - ANYBODY - who wasn't a caricature of everything that had been going wrong with their party for as long as they had been politically aware.

    Also, Hillary's glowing praise of FNC during the Democratic primary probably didn't help her, with, you know, Democrats.  Or her completely repulsive speech at the USCoC.  Or the fact that she was a lousy campaigner who put her incompetent friends in high positions and did nothing as her campaign collapsed around her.

    One way or another, Hillary was not winning in '08.  Nor will she in '16.
