Is Hillary electable?
Cut through all of the media hoopla about Hillary Clinton’s weekend announcement that she is in the Democratic presidential race “to win,” and you quickly discover that she has some big obstacles to overcome that few in the news business want to acknowledge.
Such as the early caucuses and primaries where she is either running well behind her chief rivals for the nomination or is in a dead heat. The TV and newspaper smarty-pants pundits refer to her as the “frontrunner,” but nominations are not won on a national basis. Presidential candidates must win their party’s nomination state by state — and the New York senator is anything but a frontrunner in the first three or four contests that will take place in January of 2008.Pic: nice picture of Sen. HRC with a mildly pronouced "Not" slash through it.
