I read an interesting article this afternoon where Hillary Clinton was quoted that Karl Rove is obsessed with her running for office. You know, I think she's right. For the longest time, Republicans at almost every level have hated Hillary Clinton. Karl Rove is a very very smart and strategic man. The Republicans have two challenges ahead of them.
They need to regain the constituents they lost as a result of Bush's policies and they need to collect funds. How clever to use Republicans hatred toward Hillary to gather a momentum for support and funds.
I have for a very very long time been one of those Republicans who hated Hillary; anyone who knows me, knows how little I have trusted her. And today, as I was reading that article, I realized I didn't hate her nearly as much as Bush. During brunch with my friends this Sunday, Bill Clinton came up as a topic. I disliked BC but I didn't hate him as much as Bush. I don't think I've felt so angry towards any President.
So, I can honestly say that if Hillary runs for office, I can visualize myself voting for her and actually feeling ok about it. She is probably the only Democrat I could vote for. I don't like anyone else because I don't think they are strong or focused enough for the office. She couldn't be nearly as bad as Bush.
I wonder if other women share the same change as I have? Have other women started off not trusting her or resisting her and then after the crap Bush has pulled on us feel a change of heart. I'd really like to know.
