Hils vs. Rudy?? Who Cares? It’s Never Gonna Happen.
This Time/CNN poll does not surprise me one bit. It is nothing more than a popularity contest between a popular Republican and an unpopular Democrat. WTF?? Despite what the Bushbots and Viagra swillers will make of it, there is no good news here for Republicans. This has absolutely nothing to do with the real mood of the nation. In the end, it won’t make a dime's worth of difference anyway, because Hillary is definitely not going to be the Democratic nominee and Rudy is probably not going to be the Republican nominee. Mark this down: As South Carolina goes, so go the nominations. After Hillary comes in third (or fourth) in Iowa and New Hampshire, Obama, Edwards and others (Richardson, Gore, Clark?) will finish her off in South Carolina. The Bob Jones crowd will run Guliani out of town on a rail (like the Rovians did to McCain in 2000.) So go ahead, MSM, keep on polling, pontificating, huffing, puffing and whatever else make you feel important. I would bet the farm (if I had one, which I don't) that you won't get it right.
