Only Clinton can stop Clinton

Hillary Clinton so far is dominating the early polls for the Democratic Presidential nomination. Looking across the political landscape it seems this race resembles the Bill Clinton Bob Dole match up of 1996. If the theory that the South still has crucial sway over the Presidential election, pundit Dick Morris may be right that no one can stop Senator Clinton in her quest for the White House in 2008.

Unless of course she stops herself. Howard Dean’s quest for the Presidency was cut short by a noise canceling microphone. Unknown to Dean at the time the microphone filtered out the crowd noise so his speech sounded manic to Television viewers. Some question whether he was setup by CNN or others.

One of the great movies of the late 1950’s was “A Face in the Crowd”, the story of the fictional Larry “Lonesome” Rhodes, played by Andy Griffith. Rhodes by luck and talent is propelled from radio to Television and becomes a star. Along the way he betrays the people who believe in him and helped him to the top.

In a Howard Dean moment Rhodes is betrayed by Marcia Jeffries, played by Knoxville’s own Patricia Neal. At the end of a “Lonesome” Rhodes Television broadcast while the announcer does a voice over, Rhodes is bragging to the control room how he controls the viewers and mocks them as “idiots,” “morons,” “guinea pigs.” Rhodes does not know that Marcia Jeffries has turned on his microphone and the viewing audience can hear his mockery of them. His career is finished.

Is it possible that the only person in America that can keep Hillary Clinton from the White House is either herself or her most trusted friends?

    Hillary-Care could do it. So could, for that matter, Al BGore, who’s already got some of the nutty left back into onanism mode. Doing something nasty enough to an aid on live television might, but I’m not so sure.

    I think she’s more likely to be stopped by saying something she believes that the average Americans doesn’t.

    Yeah, you’ll notice she’s not beating the gun control drum.
