FROM Jack Cafferty:
In the beginning it was a juggernaut. The caucuses and primaries were seen as little more than an inconvenience on the road to Hillary Clinton becoming the first woman president of the United States. But something bad is happening on the yellow brick road.
At one time Clinton had a 6 point lead over Barack Obama in Iowa. Today, Obama is ahead by 3 points.
In New Hampshire, Clinton had a 19 point lead earlier this fall. As of today, that's gone. In fact, Barack Obama is statistically tied with her according to a new "CNN/WMUR New Hampshire Presidential Primary Poll Conducted by The University of New Hampshire."
It's hard to tell exactly when things began to unravel. But it seemed from the beginning that Hillary was more focused on being elected President than on doing the things necessary to secure her party's nomination.
And when somebody asked a mundane question about driver's licenses for illegal aliens, reality slammed into her like an oncoming truck. In fact, she got run over that night. And if the poll numbers in Iowa and New Hampshire aren't enough to keep her and Bubba awake at night, consider this: in virtually every hypothetical match-up against the leading Republican candidates, it's not Hillary finishing first among the Democrats, it's John Edwards.
Here’s my question to you: If you were running Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, what would you advise?

Paul from Nashville, Tennesse writes:
To secure her party's nomination, Senator Clinton must develop and communicate with contagious enthusiasm her vision for America's future rather than her current implied vision of a return to America's past.
Diane from Las Vegas, Nevada writes:
From the start I would have advised her to answer the questions! Hillary did not and does not answer most questions directly. She seems to be too focused on what everyone else will think about her answer instead of what she truly believes... She needs to start talking from her heart and what she believes and quit being so worried about she thinks we all want to hear.
Connie from Dallas, Texas writes:
Jack, If I were running Hillary's campaign, I would lock the entire media into a rocket and send them to the moon. You are the most cynical and sadistic bunch, your sense of entitlement over American politics is sickening.
If I were Hillary's adviser, I would bluntly tell her to throw in the towel and step down. The last thing America needs is a continuation of the Bush/Clinton dynasty. We need new blood in the presidency, like Obama.
Aaron from Deering, New Hampshire writes:
My advice? Return to showing voters how she's the better candidate. My mind is made up, but others need to see her warmth and intelligence as I have, not her mudslinging. There's enough baseless anti-Hillary sentiment without her creating problems on her own. On the issues she wins, plain and simple.

Get a new campaign manager. Maybe Karl Rove is available.
