WHY ARE THE WHEELS COMING OFF THE CLINTON BANDWAGON?

Former Clinton adviser Dick Morris explains:

The conclusion is inescapable: the more voters come to know Hillary Clinton the less they like her and the more they get to know Barack Obama the more they like him.
...
Hillary keeps up the pattern of personal, irrelevant negative attacks.

The conclusion is obvious: neither Hillary nor her staff know how to campaign. After the Clinton re-election in 1996, they have never been tested in a competitive race. When Giuliani dropped out of the New York State Senate race and the young Congressman Rick Lazio had to enter at the last minute to try to stop Hillary's bid, the conclusion was pre-ordained. Hillary's re-election was a cakewalk against a totally under funded opponent. She doesn't know how to win.

Hillary's experience has been limited to the insider back biting of Washington where she is an expert at using her secret police -- a small army of private detectives -- to unearth negatives about her or Bill's opponents. (Even former U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young recently admitted that Hillary ran the effort to discredit women who might come forward and accuse Clinton of misconduct.) But, when it comes to campaigning, advertising and winning an election, these folks and this candidate don't have a clue.
