Possible candidates to be aided or harmed most by the two new states:
â€” In Nevada, Gov. Bill Richardson, 58, of New Mexico; former U.S. Senate majority leader Tom Daschle, 58, South Dakota; and U.S. Sen. Evan Bayh, 50, Indiana, could benefit.
â€” In South Carolina, native son and 2004 vice presidential candidate John Edwards, 53, will be helped. So might former Virginia governor Mark Warner, 51; and U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, 45, of Illinois.
â€” Almost certain to be hurt most in both states is U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, 58, New York.
In this article Neuharth goes on to say that “Clinton has been counting on a jump-start with a top two or three showing in Iowa, followed by a big Northeast win in New Hampshire. But unlikely to finish in the top two in either Nevada or South Carolina, she could lose steam before the big states choose.”
Could this be a step in an attempt to root Hillary out through the primary system? Does the Democratic Party feel beholden to the Clinton’s? Perhaps it’s time for some new blood in the party but I can’t see that happening. Hillary will swoop in an easily take the nomination in my opinion.
