Darth Vader slams McCain and then panics some donations out of the GOP faithful by making book on Hillary winning all the marbles in '08. (He claims she's got an 80% shot.)
He thinks things look grim for the Repubs. Or is that just what he wants you to think?
(Personally, I think in a one on one national race, Hillary might edge Giuliani or Romney, but Fred Thompson would beat her like a drum. She would look like a shrieking harpy on stage next to Mr. Folksy, and your average American just isn't ready to vote for the Shrew over the baritone Paterfamilias. They'd better run somebody with more charisma than Rudy or Mitt, though, because to your average Survivor-watching 'Murrican who reads no news other than the sports page, those are just another couple of white guys in suits, but they know and trust D.A. Arthur Branch and Admiral Painter because the TeeVee and Tom Clancy told them to. )
