There's a fear in Congress from Republicans that the dubious nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court will force many Christian grassroots entities to stay home during next year's contentious midterm elections.
This notion is grounded in a inability to see past the very near term. The drag of the bumbled hurricane relief and possible indictments of Karl Rove and Scooter Libby or even the remote possibility that Vice President Dick Cheney resigns will not discourage the Republican regime.
Today, there's an internal split within the party, not a struggle against a retooled Democratic Party, though. Democrats have chosen to, hopefully, allow the GOP to implode itself, rather than risk making a mistake on the offensive.
By next summer, though, Republicans will, again, trot out fearmongering and divisive topics like guns, gays and terrorists. Most likely, they will have to incredibly distance themselves from a President with scandal hanging around his neck.
No problem. A possible plan of attack would involves bringing in an old and familiar name that easily unites the the GOP every time.
Hillary Clinton. Likely Democratic Presidential nominee.
It goes like this: As Labor Day approaches, the possibility that the Republicans could lose either Congress or the Senate or both becomes very real. Even though, the presidential campaign is still a year from heating up, the name Hillary Clinton as President and Democrats ruling all of Washington will get the Bible-thumpers, abortion clinic terrorists and big game hunters all fired up.
