Hillary Clinton The Come Back Kid

Posted on January 9, 2008. Filed under: US Elections 2008 | Tags: , , , |

The polls were merciless, giving Obama 39% and Hillary 29% for a double digit gains. It looked like a another easy runaway victory for Obama .Obama was charging forward like a runaway train leaving Clinton far behind.

Everybody loves a champion of the people and the news all said that Obama would be a sure winner. How wrong were those polls.

The people of New Hampshire proved those polls wrong. Hillary and John McCain lead in New Hampshire. The next round will be in South Carolina and South Dakota.

Clinton was hit left and right and in the first vote count in New Hampshire, she did not even get a single vote while Obama received 9 votes. It looked like a very steep uphill task for the New York Senator. She lose in Iowa to Obama and a lose in New Hampshire would be unthinkable and would hurt her chances of being a Democratic nominee for president.

It was like she was fighting for her survival in New Hampshire. Iowa was different because of the youth votes went to Obama. Even those women voters too crossed over to Obama and only those older women above 60 voted for Clinton. Her strategy in Iowa failed her and she decided to go for broke in New Hampshire.

She was always composed and I have never seen her cried even when her husband was accused in the Lewinsky scandal. She showed her true self and urged the women and the youth to vote for her. She even dragged her daughter Chelsea to campaign for her. She was like a lioness cornered and fought back tooth and nail. Obama got mauled and he came back down on Earth.

It proved decisive and pipped Obama at the finishing lines in New Hampshire. She got 39% of the votes while Obama received 36% and John Edwards a far back at 17%. It looks like a Hillary and Obama fight all the way. Hillary should perform better in the more populous states as it is different in Iowa or New Hampshire. It will be a long marathon race.

I think Clinton is better and more suitable candidate than Obama because he is young and untested. Clinton has the experience to do the job.
