Who can beat the Clinton Machine?
After my last post, which got stunning reviews; I thought I would follow up with another non-controversial subject.
Who in the Republican party can beat the Clintons? Now I know the gut reaction is going to be Anyone and Everyone should beat the Clintons, but I am more interested in who can actually beat them?
Huckabee doesn't seem to have the pull with the centrists. Romney doesn't have the pull with values voters. Giuliani, well, I'm less inclined to believe that he is a real candidate for President; I think he just likes a good vacation in Florida or something. McCain doesn't really seem to have conservative Republican support. Oh and most of you hate Ron Paul.
That being said, what is the winning ticket against a Hillary Clinton for President and Tom Vilisack for VP? Can Romney/Huckabee bury the hatchet? Will Huckabee's talk of amending the constitution sink them in the center or Romney's faccade' of being a human being instead of a plastic politician? At a time when the country appears to be leaning slightly to the left, and people are unsatisfied with the incumbent government - this may be the perfect opportunity for the Clintons to take Washington by storm.
Now, consider this.
A third party run by Mike Bloomberg, is the best opportunity that the country has to avoid another Clinton decade, and let me break it down for you why.
Ross Perot is often cited as taking the Presidency away from G H.W. Bush - because he ran as a center-right leaning populist. It is a known fact that many of Mike Bloomberg's social positions are center left, socially he is liberal, which means he will challenge the Democratic nod, whoever it is, even in traditionally Democratic states. Mike Bloomberg could actually win New York and California.
The way I see it, you need Mike Bloomberg to run, lest you face the Clinton Machine by yourselves, and do you really want another decade of that?
Sign the petition to encourage Mike Bloomberg to run - even if it is just an Anyone But Clinton vote.
