Hillary and The Morris Factor

“Yesterday, inspiration confronted demographics. Charisma faced a laundry list of proposals that a large block of voters needed.

The prosaic won. And the doctrinaire ideological construct that her candidacy represents is likely to sweep the remaining contests and land her in the White House.” – Dick Morris, Febrary 6, 2008

“Hillary Clinton has blown an almost sure shot at the Democratic presidential nomination. Having surrendered the lead to Obama, she is not likely ever to regain it. It is a fantasy that the Ohio and Texas primaries will be a "firewall" to contain the flames of enthusiasm for Obama and reverse her defeats of February. Just as with Giuliani’s supposed Florida firewall, Hillary’s will crumble as Obama’s momentum carries him forward to the nomination.” – Dick Morris, February 13, 2008
