No On Hillary

I suggest reading Michelle Cottle's editorial in The New Republic on why Hillary Clinton would be the worst possible candidate for the Democrats in 2008. I disagree with her conclusions about why Kerry was a bad candidate. I don't think he was. But she's completely right about why Hillary would be terrible. Why would we nominate the most demonized political figure since Richard Nixon? Conservatives loved Nixon but there's no way he could have won in 1976 had he been able to run. Same with Hillary. Liberals love her but she is simply loathed by conservatives. Republicans could run anyone against her and win. Maybe even the ghost of Richard Nixon.
