Subject: McCain and Clinton
Thanks for all you do.
McCain's campaign was almost down and out UNTIL the Republicans got to know their other candidates and they returned to McCain.
Same with Hillary, she was as the top of the polls UNTIL Obama came along, the media loved him and hated Hillary. Now we're getting to know Obama and last nights primaries seem to show that Hillary is back.
Hillary/Obama 2008 is the perfect ticket for me.
I sent you $20 via PayPal. It's cheaper than therapy.
Thank you for everything, Lynn. Interesting analogy.
It's also interesting watching the inner party revolution where Republican voters chose McCain instead of the other GOP backed candidates. Shouldn't that be a big news story -- McCain bucks party big wigs and snags nomination, by putting the voters in charge of their own party?
