George Bush and Hillary Clinton both share a politics where they are disliked by large numbers of Americans and rather than try to get their numbers up, they are reduced to trying to get their opponent's numbers down.
Hillary Clinton entered this campaign with about 45-46% of Americans who would never support her. After one negative tactic after another her positive support has gone down and the number of people who will never support her has gone up.
This is why Barack Obama runs significantly ahead of Hillary Clinton in match-ups against John McCain and among political independents who usually decide elections. Obama reaches outward, upward and sideways while Hillary reaches backward, downward and yesterday with negative commentary about her opponent overwhelming anything positive she conveys about herself.
Hillary Clinton embodies the politics of the Bush years; Barack Obama embodies the
politics of the post-Bush years.
