Is it Going to be 2004 All Over Again?

Zogby poll is not making for a happy day today: Clinton slips behind Republican foes in new poll (click on the headline for the link to full article) Is the Left presenting yet another candidate who cannot win? This is not a bash-Hillary post (she is certainly not my choice

I can't find the exact time that I was ever (thrilled to be) referenced in PHB, but it was some time in 2004. Pam and I were equally disgusted at the evolution of NCLB (no child left behind) farce that had been rammed into federal law by Preznit Chimpy McC-Student…
