Newsweek has big article this week on Hillary. Call it a free campaign pitch. What do these people see in her? She hasn't done a thing in the Senate. She's afraid to take a stand on anything. And she's got the personality of a pit bull.
President Hillary Clinton—words that many Americans have a hard time saying out loud. But she is ahead of Obama, her nearest competitor, by double digits in all the national polls and has closed the gap with Edwards in Iowa. She has outperformed her rivals in almost every debate and has presided over a remarkably disciplined and effective presidential campaign. Meanwhile, the post-George W. Bush Republican Party hardly seems formidable at the moment: Clinton's opponent would likely be either a Mormon from Massachusetts, a laconic actor from Tennessee or a former New York mayor who is strong and stubborn—not exactly a change message in an election to replace Bush. (Clinton leads each of the top Republican contenders in most head-to-head polls.) A year before the election, Clinton seems, astonishingly, like the safest money in the 2008 race.
