The most damaging attacks coming at Senator Hillary Clinton aren't coming from conservatives. They are coming from liberals. This is something the Clinton Ladies Intervention Team did not anticipate.
First, Senator Barack Obama and former Senator John Edwards saw her falter during the last Democrtaic presidential debate and went for the jugular. While she was trying to beat back their attacks, she's had to fight a rearguard attack by the elite liberal media.
In last week's New York Times, Maureen Dowd launched a scathing attack on her. LINK HERE
Garry Trudeau has been just as relentlessly scathing in Doonesbury, the most liberal of liberal political cartoons (www.doonesbury.com). And an endless parade of liberal columnists across the country have taken her apart.
This is the pantheon of left-wing press.
This is something Girlfriend did not expect. The Clinton Strike Force hadn't developed a scenario to deal with this. Polls slipping, Bill blowing it as her primary attack dog, negative coverage from liberals she had just assumed would always put a halo above her in every piece....This is a recipe for implosion.
Girlfriend must turn the tide, which is beginning to grow to tsunami-like proportions. When you lose the momentum---when you lose the PERCEPTION of momentum----you lose the race.
Can the Clinton War Machine do it? If the candidate were Bill, I would recommend not counting them out. But because the candidate is her, she just might have to watch it all slip away.
