Hillary, The Friendly Ghost

Jay Newton-Small at the Time Magazine Blog tells us that poor Hillary got booed last night.

…Hillary was twice booed. The first time was when she said she has always and will continue to work for “change for you.” The audience, particularly from Obama supporters (they were waving Obama signs) let out a noise that sounded like a thousand people collectively groaning. The second time came a few minutes later when Clinton said: “The there are two big questions for voters in New Hampshire. One is: who will be ready to lead from day one? The second,” and here Clinton was forced to pause as boos from the crowd mixed with cheers from her own supporters. “Is who can we nominate who will go the distance against the Republicans?”

Well, two things about this.

One, as a rule I don’t think it speaks well for any particular party to have them booing a legitimate candidate. Of course, I would have to contain myself in the presence of any candidate with the initials R.P., so I probably should not throw stones.

Second, Hillary clearly does not have the kind of support she thought she had. Granted, we’re still early in the race, but she does not have a message that sets her apart favorably to her own party. She is proposing a Health Care solution that won’t work, she doesn’t know much about International Politics, she can’t even admit that her position on Iraq matched Bush’s at one time while she’s blasting him for taking us there, and the only thing she seems to be left with is “I’ll bring you what you had for 8 years with Bill”, which only people with blinders on find appealing. The more people watch her, the easier it gets to say “You know when Hillary is lying… her lips are moving”.
