9. 2 reasons.....
1. Hillary is probably the most hated Democrat among the freeper wing of the Republican party. They absolutely are obsessed with her. I don't know why. Perhaps its the fact that she didn't fit the cookie cutter, Stepford mold of a first lady. Or maybe it was her attempt at universal health care in 94. Or maybe its because shes a woman with power. Whatever it is, they absolutely hate her and nothing is sweeter than going to war with somebody you hate. They're pushing for her so they can satisfy their desire of confronting her on a national stage and using everything in their bag of dirty tricks to destroy her. It is simply a sick obsession. They want to stomp on her and put her away for good. She's an enemy to them, like a terrorist.

2. They want to say "we were right." For years, the Rethuglicans have been pushing the idea that Hillary is desperate for power and that she is slowly executing her path to the top, where she will reign down on us a storm of terror. Rush Limbaugh subscribes to this view alot. I cant recall how many times during the 2004 campaign season that he mentioned how Hillary was Kerry's biggest enemy because she was going to destroy him in order to run in '08. I believe some wingnuts have even written books on this subject. About how Hillary's quest for power will have her on the top of the ticket by '08. O'Reilly also alludes to this on his show. They want her to run so their crazy conspiracy theories don't get proven wrong.
