I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Irrelevant - Giuliani VS Clinton that is

Any polls for the 2008 presidential election that include Rudy Giuliani and Hillary Clinton are irrelevant. Neither one of them will be their parties nominee in 2008. Lets look at Rudy first. He has too many skeletons in his closet, including marriages, adultery, pro-choice and pro-gay marriage.
Since John McCain has hired the very man who slimmed him in 2000 for his campaign you can bet all those skeletons will see the light of day.

And then there is Hillary. If you read these virtual pages you know I am no fan of Hillary. Her hawkish stance and close association with the DLC has resulted in a distrust by a large portion of the base. She did not help herself with this:
Clinton Gives War Critics New Answer on ’02 Vote
If the most important thing to any of you is choosing someone who did not cast that vote or has said his vote was a mistake, then there are others to choose from,” Mrs. Clinton told an audience in Dover, N.H., in a veiled reference to two rivals for the nomination, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois and former Senator John Edwards of North Carolina.

Today's news has to make one wonder if Hillary's campaign is already in a melt down mode.
Clinton, Obama trade barbs over donor
WASHINGTON - Two Democratic presidential campaigns angrily accused the other of nasty politics on Wednesday over a Hollywood donor who once backed Hillary Rodham Clinton's husband but now backs her top rival.

The Clinton campaign sent out a testy news release after DreamWorks movie studio founder David Geffen, a fan of Sen. Barack Obama, told The New York Times that Sen. Clinton was ambitious and polarizing.


Geffen hosted a $1.3 million fundraiser for Obama on Tuesday and is backing the Illinois senator.
Hillary has a DLC inspired hubris and the look and feel of a DC insider. The refusal to admit mistakes makes her look more like Geroge W. Bush than a person the Democrats would want to nominate. As John Avarosis said, after six years of George W Bush's refusal to admit mistakes and refusal to take responsibility:
"It worked for six years, but now people are seriously over the "I'm wrong, but resolute" personality type."
Hillary Clinton started out in a hole in her quest for the nomination and up to this point has continued to dig. Who does that sound like.
