How could Hillary Clinton get my vote?
As someone with a basic understanding of math and economics and a capability to discern why capitalism is preferable to socialism, I do not meet the demographics of the typical Hillary Clinton supporter. Having said that, she does have a very slight chance of getting my vote. All she has to do to garner my support is ensure Sen. Chuck Hagel is the Republican nominee for president.
The Washington Post has a fawning article speculating about the various ways Hagel could run for president. What jumped out from the article was this paragraph:
Both parties have their Iraq war contrarians. For the Democrats, it is Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut, whose steadfast support for President Bush nearly cost him his seat last year and forced him to run as an independent. The Republican version is Hagel, a career maverick from Nebraska and the only GOP senator to call for an end to the war.So, Lieberman is unwelcome in his party for wanting us to win in Iraq and Hagel is unpopular in his for the opposite reason. That paragraph is as telling about the two parties as it is about the individuals discussed.
