How political analysis works
Dick Morris is a political strategist who advised President Bill Clinton and a variety of Republican candidates. He currently gets paid lots of money to explain to people about who will win elections, and why. Luckily for him, his pay isn't linked to how accurate his predictions are...
"Hillary Clinton has blown an almost sure shot at the Democratic presidential nomination. Having surrendered the lead to Obama, she is not likely ever to regain it. It is a fantasy that the Ohio and Texas primaries will be a “firewall” to contain the flames of enthusiasm for Obama and reverse her defeats of February. Just as with Giuliani’s supposed Florida firewall, Hillary’s will crumble as Obama’s momentum carries him forward to the nomination." - Dick Morris, 'Why Hillary will lose', February 13th
"Voters are likely to hand state after state over to Obama. It's increasingly unlikely that Clinton will win even one of them." - Dick Morris, 'Hillary on the Rocks', February 22nd
"She can’t accept the sorry fact that her campaign has been a disaster because it was based on the past and not the future, because it was premised on her phony experience and maintaining the status quo, and because her negative outlook is completely out of step with the mood of America." - Dick Morris, 'Hillary Unmasked', March 1st
"With big wins in Ohio and Texas last night, Hillary Clinton has finally broken her losing streak and sent a clear message to Barack Obama: I'm not getting out...The battle of Hillary is over. The battle of Obama has begun. The question of his readiness and experience looms ever larger in the minds of the media and of voters." - Dick Morris, 'Obama Better Battle Back Before It's Too Late', March 6th
