Hillary Clinton: "too 'angry' to win"

Arthur Finkelstein, the chief political guru of New York Governor George Pataki, and one of the country's most successful yet least known political consultants/spin doctors launched StopHerNow.com, a website targeting Hillary Clinton. And:
- According to the New York Post, Finkelstein, the longtime master of the political attack ad, hopes the site will raise as much as $10 million from Hillary-haters across the nation and provide a gathering point for conservative activists working to defeat her in next year's Senatorial election. Hillary's defeat would likely derail any presidential aspirations she might have. (Berkowitz, op. cit.)
- "Hillary bashers are counting on a political trifecta consisting of the Internet, lessons learned from the Swift Boat Veterans attack against John Kerry, and the genius of Arthur Finkelstein." (Berkowitz, op. cit.)
