Dramatic Picture Shows Hillary Clinton Reclaiming Lost Ground Among Democrats

A few days ago on this blog I ran the picture below and commented on eroding support among Democrats for Hillary Clinton— 

With Hillary Clinton winning the New Hampshire primary this evening, I feel it is only fair to run a picture showing her reclaiming some of the lost ground—

Now if you think  I’m suggesting that Mrs. Clinton’s talk about representing a new way of doing things is garbage—Well, I’ll let you decide for yourself what I’m suggesting.

In any case, Mrs. Clinton did well this evening in New Hampshire.

Please click here for my post calling the 2008 race for the White House for Barack Obama. I stick by that prediction.

  3. Pretty mean Neil.
    Guess you belong in the play ground wihe bullies.

    Now envision BO meeting Putin and Admadinejad with his credentials “I was President of the Harvard Law Review”, no not the editor, it was back in 1990.

    Sorry you do not have the best interest of The United States at heart. You have become part of a cult. Better really dig in and think this out a little better. And oh yes, turn off your TV. You are getting brain washed.

    Many people love this country and we will be voting for Hillary R. Clinton
    You are welcome for this post

  4. There is no doubt that sexism is alive and well in this society, and MUCH more prevalent than racism. If BO wins, it will be because of sexist idealisms and stereotypes, and a symbolic, angry, backlash against women.

    I live in Michigan and voted for Clinton, even though my vote won’t count!

    This statement is so inaccurate that it reeks of sexism in itself. Apparently this contributor has unresolved psychological issues, harboring a clear bias to averse the fact that in Wisconsin (among other states) it is a higher percentage of WOMEN who voted for Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton.

    I realize that people are entitled to their opinion, however it is another thing to read a statement like Wendy Noder’s when there is unclouded, unquestionable prejudice against men lurking deep within her subconscious mind of past unresolved issues. From nowhere else could such a predjudice statement present itself except from that of an injured spirit, when the facts simply do not support it. Since women are the majority who voted for Barack Obama, it is clear that,
    “If BO wins, it will [NOT] be because of sexist idealisms and stereotypes, and a symbolic, angry, backlash against women” since it is obvious that WOMEN are the ones who are voting Barack Obama into office.

  7. To further support my justified rebuttle of Wendy Noder’s comments, I have found THE FACTS regarding women who are in favor of Barack Obama, which is to clearly point out that Wendy Noder’s comments are simply sexist and inaccurate. The article (of many) comes from The Telegrahp Newspaper, Editor: Toby Harnden in Salem, New Hampshire:

    Women voters, long taken for granted by Hillary Clinton as she gave speeches about making history as the first female American president, are deserting her in droves for her rival Barack Obama.
    In Iowa, an entrance poll taken at the caucuses showed Mr Obama won 35 per cent of the female vote compared to 30 per cent for the New York senator. Only older women proved reliable supporters of Mrs Clinton.
    Fighting to reverse her slide among younger women, Mrs Clinton has surrounded herself with female college students at her events, invited teenage girls onto her campaign bus and trudged through the snows of New Hampshire with her daughter Chelsea, 27.
    In Saturday’s Democratic debate, Mrs Clinton, who now trails Mr Obama by up to 13 points in New Hampshire polls, said indignantly: “I am an agent of change. I embody change. I think having the first woman president is a huge change with consequences across our country and the world.”
    But women in New Hampshire, who make up 56 per cent of the votes, have been flocking to Obama events and rejecting Mrs Clinton.
    Focus groups indicate that the average age of women backing Mr Obama is rising by the day. Significant numbers of black women are switching to Mr Obama.
    “Having the first woman president is a huge deal me, my friends and my mother,” said Hope Joudrey, 31, a kindergarten teacher, at an Obama rally in Salem.
    “My daughter thinks she’s going to be president and I hope she is. But there’s got to be more. You can’t be just the first woman president or the first black president. If you’re a single issue person then you’re not going to be my president.”
    Mr Obama has a potent appeal to women because his positive message of hope and call to “turn the page and write a new chapter in American history” resonates with young, unmarried women, who are traditionally most eager to embrace change in elections.
