Democrats Worry About Clinton's Run For President

Joe Gandelman at The Moderate Voice has a post up about the fear some democrats have over the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. The great fear seems to be over her negative polling and how it will affect the other candidates running for congress.
Clinton may be the candidate who seems to be building national support. Of all the Democratic candidates, she may be the one in terms of performance in debates who is showing the most “growth” in terms of her ability as a candidate. But she may be the one who could prove to the biggest drag on other Democrats who are running for office.
It is an issue, no one brings out the sheer slobbering lunacy of the far-out right better than a Clinton. Just the thought of "Madame President" and Bill as the First Husband has the slobber flying, the veins popping, and the eyes bulging. Their fingers are stammering on the keyboards.

Mr. Gandelman has it all right, as usual, but there is also the point that she is the best candidate. Obama is not yet viable and Edwards is just a stuffed shirt and an easy mark for the lying echo machine of talk radio and Fox News.

Hillary is the one, so we need to get ready for a big fight.

However, the country appears warming, at least slightly, to the idea of her as president, at least compared with the Republican alternatives.

The bet here remains that the country will vote to end the U.S. military engagement in Iraq, even if that means returning the Clintons to the White House.

I hope the nation votes for Ms. Clinton because she is the best hope for the future of this country and I fervently hope she has a few miracles up her sleeve to get us out the mess that the republicans have gotten us into.
