My pal Larkin questions whether Hillary lost some ground in her race for Democratic nominee coming out of Tuesday night's Drexel University debate in New Hampshire. Simultaneously my pal Steve Crickmore is suggesting that the GOP will focus and hit hard on Hillary's 1992-2000 White House history and that will in turn wipe away the sins of George Bush over the last 7 years in the minds of voters.
What's HIllary doing in response to criticism such as this? She's making lemonade...
Criticism of Hillary Rodham Clinton's Tuesday night debate performance continued into a second day, prompting her campaign to call it all "The Politics of Pile-On."
In a Web spot, Mrs. Clinton seeks to take an uneven debate appearance and personal attacks by her fellow candidates into a sign of her strength as the race's frontrunner. Several reports indicate that her campaign has also sought to fund-raise (again) off the attacks, which spooled out yesterday from her Democratic rivals as well as from leading Republicans, including Rudy Giuliani and the head of the Republican party.
Here's the video response from Clinton cited above:
Clinton will continue to take heat on Social Security, Health Care, and the archives, and she'll continue to stand her ground and turn the situation to her advantage. By running this gauntlet now she'll show her ability (or lack thereof) to take on foes from all sides.
How 'presidential' she'll look if she succeeds.
