She’s just got to stop this. The first serious female candidate for President and she’s tearing up all over the place?

We interrupt the coverage of Hillary-the-Wannabe-Astronaut to note with interest that Commander-in-Chief has indeed been cancelled.

hillary_from_waco.jpg

From Waco KidPlease weigh in. What does this tell us about Hillary 2008? Pick one.

A) You just don’t like strong women! America is not (sob) ready for a woman President!

B) America just lost interest in the Woman President schtick. It’s not that big a deal. Green light, Hill.

C) America is ready for a woman President. But not a Collagen Commander. . .

Hillary Gets the [Crossed] Finger

Hillary Clinton with soldier

signaling duressAn old picture of Hillary is going around. But there’s an updated message.

In the marketing of politics negatives count. Any “product” that produces above 40% negative is in the red zone.

Charmaine writes:

Gallup has just released a poll on how many registered voters would vote for Hillary Clinton…Bad news for Hill’s juggernaut: a solid 51% of voters “definitely” would not vote for her.

So what does a politico, facing with declining market share, do? Launch New Hillary.

Which will be just as successful as. . . New Coke.

In the old days even the Main Stream Media would lurch into the truth — and capture the message of service men under duress.

When a marketer is faced with a sinking product — or politico — the campaign should move away from the disjointed, move to the familiar, to the base.

Some products can’t be expanded into other market segments. New Coke didn’t work. Hillary Clinton with the military won’t work.

Don’t be like Hillary.

Just Don’t Do It.

Specialist Lacourse signaling duress

with John Kerry

Notice Specialist Lacourse’s right hand?

Anyone want to hazard a guess as to the signal she’s sending?

To some, it’s the POW hand signal for coercion. I was ready to send SAR when seeing that one.

Heh. Good for you, Specialist! Huah!!!

Senator John Kerry, D-Mass., greets Soldiers hailing from his state at Camp Al Tahreer in Baghdad, Iraq Jan. 5. During the visit, Kerry discussed sports, the presidential election, and the state of the war in Iraq. Pictured from left to right are: Spc. Michelle Lacourse, 126th Aviation Battalion; Pfc.

Hillary v. Condi

Gallup has just released a poll on how many registered voters would vote for Hillary Clinton and Condi Rice.

From Waco Kid

Bad news for Hill’s juggernaut: a solid 51% of voters “definitely” would not vote for her. The graph at the right shows the breakdown by party affiliation.

The numbers for Clinton don’t surprise me. What does surprise are the high negatives for Condi Rice: 46% of voters would definitely not vote for her.

If you factor in the margin of error — +/- 3, then you have nearly a dead heat between these two.

Taking a little break from judicial politics to think about presidential politics. . . This is a great graph from (the always classy) Will Franklin at Willisms. Will thinks Hill can’t win in 2008.

I hope he’s right.

Will argues that her negatives are just too high in the red states. True. Still, I worry about the Celebrity Factor.

Hillary 2008 Watch . . . Off and Running . . .

From Waco Kid

Feathers McGraw at Penguin Proletariat has a good post up on Hillary’s latest Triangulation Tango — where she tries to say “I supported the war, buuuut I would have done it better.” I’m a hawk, but I don’t bite.

A lot of coverage of Hillary’s speech to the Aspen Institute last week, in which she mocked President Bush, comparing him to the Alfred E. Neuman cartoon character and saying his attitude is “What? Me Worry?”

But in the brouhaha over this allegedly funny remark, an important point has been missed. Frankly, I think the joke was a miscalculation on her part. Let’s get this straight: Hillary Clinton is implying that, as President, she would. . . worry more than President Bush?

Hey Hill. Not a good strategic move. I hate to be the one to say it, but. . . worrying is, well, kind of girly.

And speaking of girly! Hillary’s reelection (for Senate, natch) website is up at www.HillaryClinton.com. . .and. . .

For only $40, you, too, can own a Hillary t-shirt . . . get this: designed by Marc Jacobs. Kid you not. (Who is Marc Jacobs, you [male readers] ask? From Hillary’s site, he is: Creative Director of Louis Vuitton. . . who has “long been admired for his mix of extreme luxury and effortless charm. . . Jacobs is, according to American Vogue, “New York’s dauphin of grungy, understated cool.”)

Designer campaign t-shirts??! Gotta hand it to her.

I can tell you this: It’s very hard to stop people who have no shame about what they’re doing…. It is very hard to stop people who have never been acquainted with the truth.

According to the American Spectator’s Washington Prowler, “Even Democrats were laughing” about this one.
