The GOP are rooting for Hillary Clinton to win the Democratic Primary. The GOP are not very motivated right now, but they still have hope left since it looks like the Democrats will be nominating Hillary Clinton to run for president in 08.
The GOP thinks that Hillary will be a motivating force for the GOP to come out and vote. They are taking a page from Karl Rove and are doing what they can to help it alone.
"Conversations with Republicans gathered here for the biennial Midwest Republican Leadership Conference reflect a party unenthused or just plain uncertain about their potential White House nominee. But GOP faithful also seem quite confident and even upbeat about the prospect that the senator from New York is, as Rove put it, the "prohibitive favorite to win the nomination."
"That likelihood, they say, is good news for any hopes of keeping the White House and getting other Republicans on the ballot elected."
"Asked if Clinton being the nominee would improve his party's chances both nationally and in Indiana, Howard County (Ind.) GOP Chair Craig Dunn got excited. "Absolutely, absolutely!" he exclaimed animatedly, grinning widely. "We've never elected a president of the United States who started off with 45 percent unfavorable ratings!"
"Todd Rokita, Indiana's secretary of state and a Romney backer, emphasized, given his is role as the state's election officer, that the election next year would be fair and accurate. But as somebody with further statewide ambitions, Rokita couldn't entirely hide his delight at the prospect of a Clinton nomination. Hoosiers "have had enough of the Clintons and they don't want a return to that," he said."
"But to Clinton's camp, the lavishing of GOP attention on the former first lady is seen as nothing short of flattery.
"Noting Clinton's uptick in both national and state polls, spokesman Mo Elleithee said the GOP is "attacking her and making her center of attention because they see these trends"
If Hillary is nominated it looks more and more like it is going to the 1990s all over again. The Clintons v Repugs. The democrats are always stuck in the past playing over the same old feuds.
To me it is like the Ground Hog Day Movie with Bill Murrey. Living the same day or years in the case over and over until we get it right. I was hoping the democrats would leave the past and go into the future, but it looks like it ain't going to happen.
