Hillary Has A Chink In Her Hollywood Armor

Friends no more? I hope Sen. Hillary Clinton isn't counting on help from Hollywood mogul David Geffen in her possible run for the White House in 2008. Geffen, a generous supporter and pal of Bill Clinton when he was President, trashed Hillary's prospects last night during a Q&A at the 92nd St. Y. "She can't win, and she's an incredibly polarizing figure," the billionaire Democrat told his audience. "And ambition is just not a good enough reason." Geffen's dis was met with hearty applause.
I am really looking forward to the 2008 presidential race with Hillary as the Democratic nominee. The Democrats will nominate her, and raise a potful of money again, but they might as well flush it down the ol' crapper. Spending money without the message will be merely going through the paces.
Hillary has been in the senate four years now but she has not really contributed more than pablum to the political discourse.
As smart as everyone says Hillary is, she will not present the American electorate with any acceptable solutions to the problems we face. The Democratic idea bank is empty. Can anyone give me even one semi-good idea she has presented in over four years as Senator Hillary? Please, tell me....I'm waiting....
Can anyone imagine commander-in-chief Hillary sending our troops off to fight the terrorists while Bill chases interns around the west wing? Like deja vu all over again, Bill can certainly imagine it.
I agree with Mr. Geffen, but prefer to say, Hillary won't win.
Nope, it's just not going to happen.
