The "Change Candidate"
Posted by Heather Hurlburt

Just one delightful post-mortem tidbit on the French elections.  The Post today has the we-all-knew-somebody-would-write-it WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR HILLARY story.  (Somehow, nobody thinks it means anything for Hungarian emigres that Sarkozy won, or for ethnic Scots that the Scottish National Party whomped Labor in Scotland.  But I digress.)

You might skip this story because of its painful obviousness, but then you would have missed this gem:

Tom Ingram, who was an adviser to Fred D. Thompson's 1994 Senate campaign and has talked to him about a potential 2008 presidential run, said that he thought the Royal race might be good for Republicans, but not because of gender or any similarity Royal had to Clinton.

"It looked to me like more a change-versus-status-quo campaign, and I think that's interesting, since the change candidate was of the same party as the outgoing president, which is a little odd," Ingram said. "Maybe that's good news for Republicans."

You could argue that "change" won every election in Europe last week, and that, whether we like it or not, "change" is backing the Islamists in Turkey.  You might also find it odd that "change" in America means heightening the Reagan references per minute to levels not seen since, well, since he passed away.  But that's politics.

I know there is a lot of talk about the ineptitude of the bankers who caused the economic collapse but I am not buying that either.Obama has not changed. It's just the American people (sadly not that many) who are waking up.
