14. She rarely writes pieces of political punditry. When she does, she is
as bad as anybody.

Right now, the fact that Kerry is not willing to disappear and leave the field to others, added to the fact that he makes all the right moves is probably starting to frighten the little Democratic world as he could easily become Hillary's principal opponent.

Warner, Bayh, Feingold, Edwards, Biden, ... were probably hoping that he would stay nicely in the Senate and that they could position themselves against Hillary more easily. While they are not saying anything themselves, it is noticable that most of the people who oppose forcefully a Kerry run (as opposed to those who say it would not be their choice) are people who are strongly supporting candidates who are thought well placed to succeed or to become Hillary's principal opponent.

If anything, these editorials are sign that Kerry is a strong opponent who could easily become a legitimate candidate. They dont particularly worry me as long as we continue to have other articles explaining why Kerry could be a good candidate.
