16 Years Of Hillary Hate Doesn't Simply Vanish


Updated WASHINGTON, Pa. – It was a repeat of a line that attracted a great deal of attention in her announcement speech, but when Gov. Sarah Palin praised the “determination and grace” of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton at a McCain campaign rally here Saturday the line was met with a few tepid claps and some boos.

It was just a blip in an otherwise enthusiastic rally, but it did show some of the complications Senator John McCain may face in trying to attract former Clinton supporters to his cause.

McCain's people are very good at playing into the media storyline of the day/week. Actually knowing what the voters want, as opposed to what the Villagers want, is a bit harder. Still it is a strategy that can work.
