Question of the Day

Another hot topic at the aforementioned party was that of Hillary running in ’08. I’m not really keen on trying to discern at this point who will be the best candidate in ’08, since so much can change in three years, but I am curious to know, how do you feel about Hillary running and why?

I personally find her too centrist and opportunistic, and I’d rather see someone else get the nom, someone who doesn’t, as Mahablog noted, move right to find "common ground" with the wingnuts or provide butt cover for Bush, specifically someone more liberal, but if the Dems are determined to nominate a right-chasing, butt cover-supplying centrist, then I’ve got no (intrinsic) problem with Hillary.

What are your thoughts?
