Political Ramifications of Bhutto Assassination

MSNBC has already taken the first step in this discussion, by saying that this probably helps the case for Rudy Giuliani. Yeah, right. The media a clearly idiots who need to just stick to reporting "what" happens.
This is a sad day for Pakistan and the future, but people had to see this coming. There had already been attempts to assassinate her, and she knew that she was taking risks anytime that she went out into public.
But, just like 9/11 had political consequences, this will also reverberate through the remaining days leading up to Iowa.
Here's what I think we'll be hearing:
MSNBC has already brought up the benefits for Giuliani's tough talk. I am sure Giuliani will try and use this to his advantage.
The other candidate who I am sure the media will say this benefits some, is Hillary Clinton. Not because Clinton has started running the "I'll keep you safe" BS in her ads in Iowa, but because she is a "WOMAN", just like Benazir Bhutto.
Will this assassination of such a high-profile woman cause even more women to flock to Clinton in the near future? The Clinton campaign won't say so openly, but you can count on the fact that the wheels are turning in Mark Penn's head.
With only a week left before Iowa, I'm going to be listening to what Hillary Clinton says to see if they do so overtly, because I'm sure people like Chris Matthews will begin making the references today.How do you think this will impact that campaign?
