I saw Dick Morris on Fox News this morning and he made some interesting points about a race for President between Condi and Hillary.
He said that over 60% of white men vote Republican no matter what. He said it is the white women that swing the vote. They should be split. Then we have the black vote. The black vote goes almost 90% Democrat, but he said after talking to many black political leaders, he says that they believe that Condi would receive at least half of the black vote because it would be so historic to have a black President that they would cross over. He said in that scenario Condi wins by 12 million votes. An interesting take that seems pretty right on to me. I still think that a McCain/Rice ticket would do just as well. The black vote would still want a black Vice President.
I can tell you one thing. We will not able to win by bashing Hillary. The white women swing vote just won't look kindly on any kind of smear on Hillary. Like it or not, white women who aren't into politics tend to like Hillary and see her as one of them. Bashing her will be bashing them. So it will be a hard enough road right there. We need to choose our candidate carefully. We need to put our differences aside and come together to beat what could be the worst man made disaster we have ever known.
And please don't try and tell me that Hillary might not get the nomination. You are completely naive if you believe that.
