The nation's mood

Posted By on Sun, Nov 4, 2007 at 6:25 AM

The nation's mood is generally sour, says this Washington Post/ABC poll, and, it's true, Bush has been a uniter. Even a majority of Republicans want a change. Hillary beats all the Republicans, but the margin over Rudy is quite narrow. And, how about this: a solid majority now favors giving homosexual couples many of the same legal rights  enjoyed by married couples.

About that Hillary edge: It's 2000 all over again and she faces the seemingly impossible Gore dilemma of having to defeat Republicans as well as nominal media friends on the left. Today, she-devil Maureen Dowd and Frank Rich are advancing the Republican talking points on Clinton. In Rich's case, her position on Iran is at least a valid point of criticism.
