Hillary Loses Her Inevitability

Hosted by

Hillary Clinton's "inevitability" is old news as Barack Obama moves ahead in some polls and John Edwards just won't go away. The Democratic primary in South Carolina comes hot on the heels of the Iowa and Nevada caucuses and the primary votes in New Hampshire.  In Orangeburg, South Carolina yesterday, Bill Clinton was asked what his wife's number one priority would be if she were elected.  He said the first thing Hillary Clinton would do is send him and the first President Bush on a worldwide mission to repair the damage the current president has done to America's reputation. What happens as a fading front-runner resorts to damage control? Does she go on the attack or soften her image? Does she talk about issues or electability in November?
