Nixon 1968, Clinton 2008

In Nixon 1968, Clinton 2008, John Ellis of RealClearPolitics writes that in order for Hillary Clinton to win in 2008, she must pursue Richard Nixon's successful strategy of 1968.

Lacking in warmth and likability, Nixon won by being the toughest, smartest and most cunning of the candidates.

Ellis thinks Nixon's approach matches Hillary to a T.

Not only do I agree, but I was an early observer of the eerie parallel. See the posts linked below.
