    Not a chance. I am going to just repeat what I wrote in a thread about this book.

    Its an 8 year old story. There is just a book about it now. This is the problem with the American right these days, you think you are going to find some scandal thats going to take down the Democrat and pave your way to the White House again. Look since the 1988 election the Republican candidate has won the majority of the popular vote just one time in 2004. If you want to start winning the White House, its not some hit job book thats going to win it for you. The reason why Republicans are not winning the White House is they have moved so far to the right that the majority of Americans that vote in presidential elections agree more on the issues with the Democratic candidate than the Republican one. If Hillary wins in 2016 and there are pretty good odds she will, it will be because the majority of Americans agree with her more than they agree with her Republican opponent who had to move to the hard right on the issues because heaven forbid the GOP base allows anyone to moderate their views on anything. And why does Hillary stand such a good chance of winning? It is because on the whole she is pretty moderate and thus most people agree with her on the issues they care about.

    If the Republicans want to beat Hillary in 2016, they need to run a candidate they need a moderate for a candidate. People ultimately vote issues they care about and the reason why Republicans have such a hard time winning the White House is they run candidates that are well outside of the mainstream on issues that most people that vote care about.

    If it were Richard Nixon standing against Hillary, you might want Hillary to win. Maybe not, but maybe.

    This is merely on part of an orchestrated campaign from the right to defeat Clinton via a death of a thousand cuts now since they know they have a poor chance of doing so in November of 2016.

    The GOP has a problem on the national level. After 2012 they spent millions trying to find out why they loss, and the think tanks and the studies all pretty much said the same thing, the GOP's turn to the right has turned off the moderate voters. The GOP needs to move more to the center.

    BUT the conservative media and AM talk show people that the GOP loves so dearly are saying just the opposite, that the party has to go farther to the right to win the white house.

    The conservative media is helping the GOP on the local and state level, but they are doing the GOP no good on the national level.

    McCain and Romney both ran to the hard right, they had to in order to appease the base during the primaries. Dole ran as a typical establishment Republican, but his biggest problem was he was running against Clinton who had a strong economy and peace and prosperity to run on. The Republicans keep thinking they need to get those old Reagan voters to vote for them and they will win. All the Reagan voters that are still alive, still vote for the Republican candidate. The problem for Republicans are those voters are not a majority.
