hillary Look, anyone can have a bad week. I know I just did – lots of hours and not a lot accomplished to show for it. But at least I’m not running for President of the U.S. I mean, consider Hillary Clinton’s week:

* The fallout from her poor debate performance the other week has revealed far more about the candidate than her inability to answer clearly a question about giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. The fact that her campaign has now circled the wagons and gone into pure defense mode has revealed that Ms. Clinton can’t take criticism very well and a campaign operation that has trouble rolling with the punches. Not a good sign.

Make no mistake about it – this was an occasion where Hillary could have shown her supposedly legendary “toughness” and “cool” (what a joke!), and her campaign’s ability to shake off the kind of minor missteps that are common in a lengthy Presidential campaign. But she hasn’t been able to do it, and the polls are just now beginning to reflect the vulnerability her candidacy has always had (even while invisible to people who just assumed she would be coronated President a year from now). And, regardless of what anyone thinks, the fact that her philandering, impeached husband has suddenly appeared from out of nowhere to defend her everywhere is NOT a sign of strength. In fact, as I’ve pointed out before, it does her a great disservice because it suggests she can’t stand on her own two female feet, and needs a man to come to her rescue. Another bad sign.

* The story of the Clinton campaign playing cheapskate and not leaving a tip at an Iowa diner (as reported by NPR, no less!) continues to dog the campaign. One can only imagine how a multi-millionaire running for President as a “champion of the middle class” (gag me with a spoon!) stiffing waitresses at a local diner is playing with Iowa voters.

* And then you had publication of a national Quinnipiac College poll that show Hillary’s negatives have not dropped one iota with all the campaigning she has done. National party operatives have to know that, while she might still get the party’s nomination for President, with negatives that high she is virtually unelectable in a general election.

* And now the latest controversy: seems her campaign has been caught planting questions at press conferences.

Is it any wonder that Democrats may now be starting to feel a little unease about Madame President and her cheatin’ impeached husband, who, BTW, has already predicted a Hillary landslide?
