Which potential Democrat nominee would be the easiest to beat in the 08 presidential election?
Here's Jay Reding's thoughts on the subject, and he thinks Hillary is smarter than conventional wisdom might have it. I'm not so sure she's smart enough to fool enough people.
Excerpt (from Comments):
"People’s minds are made up about Hillary Clinton, and they won’t change. As she twists in the wind and hedges her bets on every issue in attempt to play the 'centrist', her unfavorables will only continue to rise because the right and center have convinced themselves she’s a liberal and the left has convinced themselves she’s a sellout."
Regardless, I think her albatrosses are too great for her to bear.
The same goes for algore, Reportingforduty Kerry, and the Diz.
Edwards? A lightweight in 04 who hasn't really gained enough traction for 08, despite the love heaped upon him by some of our local friends.
There's still plenty of time for new faces to appear. Who else should we consider?
On the Republican side, watch out for Mike Huckabee. He made a big impression at the state GOP convention this past June.
