A Hillary 2008 nomination will not work.

Edited on Sun Mar-05-06 08:06 PM by Cascadian
For those of you who think, for whatever reason, supporting a Hillary nomination is a good idea ought to think again. A Hillary Clinton nomination would be a disaster for the Democratic Party. On one side you would have the neocon press and pundits spinning her swift boat style like they always have been but if she runs, you watch that spinning machine go into overdrive. And then on the other side, Hillary has moved too much to the right. Her continued support for the Iraq occupation will work against her. In fact, the neocons could use the fact that she "goes along to get along" to her disadvantage. The Democrats can no longer have a nominee that is going to play it safe against the Neocons. Hillary would mean defeat for the Democrats.

I think Hillary should just get beaten in the primaries in N.Y. this year to a true progressive Democrat. Sorry but that is just my opinion.
