I undestand that this is not the point of the posting, but...

The Democratic party will do everything in it's power to make sure that Hillary does NOT become the Democratic nominee for President.

They are smart enough to realize that regardless of how popular she may be within the party, that she would never win.

Are you really sure they are that smart as a group? Or are you just projecting a moderate intelligence level onto them. Individually they may realize it's not a good idea, but that groupthink is pretty powerful.

Right now Vegas has her as only a small underdog to win the nomination vs all other dem candidates. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the dems shoot themselves in the foot, yet again.

FWIW The Dems are slight favorites to win the national election.

Hillary matches up well against most Dems and Republicans in this current war environment. If the political environment remains static and there is no major upending of the apple cart (like a major terrorist attack), she should be the Democratic nominee. She has name recognition, gobs of money, a fawning media, and a steely resolve perfectly counterbalanced by her husband's kinetic intellect. However, she matches up very poorly next to Al Gore, who matches her in name recognition, money, and connection to the Clinton-Gore "good times", with the added ability of being able to beat Hillary silly with Hillary's vote to go to war.

Edwards, or maybe Jim Bennet will be the Dem nominee.

Ma Clinton and Obama will fade.

Whoops, I meant Sen. Jim Webb, not Bennett.

Hillary and Hussein Obama are "hares" -- as in "Tortoise and the Hare." They'll fade after a while.

The Democrats have a problem which iSteve can expound upon: they are split between the anti-war Dems and the Zionist Democrats.

The recent controversy about Jimmy Carter's book exemplifies this split among Democrats.

The Dems are making a habit of getting excited about unelectable candidates. First Frankenstein, the Pinnochio, and now the Amazing Maneater. I'm starting to think that IQ negatively correlates with good judgement.
