Casting Stones

Evidently, Clinton didn’t do as well as The Corner (and David) thought she did:

We now know something that we did not know before: When Hillary Clinton has a bad night, she really has a bad night.
In a debate against six Democratic opponents at Drexel University here Tuesday, Clinton gave the worst performance of her entire campaign.
It was not just that her answer about whether illegal immigrants should be issued driver’s licenses was at best incomprehensible and at worst misleading.
It was that for two hours she dodged and weaved, parsed and stonewalled.
And when it was over, both the Barack Obama and John Edwards campaigns signaled that in the weeks ahead they intend to hammer home a simple message: Hillary Clinton does not say what she means or mean what she says.
And she gave them plenty of ammunition Tuesday night.

Read the rest of the evaluation here.
Her flip-flop over the NY driver’s license (I posted the video at Reformed Chicks) demonstrates something very important: she’ll say anything to get elected. We all know it and so does the general public. And if the Democrats do hammer her on it, it will help soften the ground when the Republicans hammer her on it as well. I would think that the voters are getting a little tired of being lied to by politicians election after election. Promised one thing but getting something entirely different.
I’m not as depressed as others are over her chances (though, I have a terrible track record for predicting what voters will do, so take this for what it’s worth — nada). She has close to 50% disapproval rating and 50% of those polled say they won’t vote for her no matter what. That number includes Democrats (remember this polling data).
