I'm working on a sort of "ten reasons" list why it would be a huge mistake to nominate Hillary Clinton -- who's really doing a fine job as NY's Senator and ought to stay there -- as the Democratic Presidential nominee. Top among those reasons are that (a) multiple polls show she's not electable against McCain, whereas Obama is; (b) while she claims she'll stop the Iraq war, the truth is that she has consistently supported it and has never backed down from that position; and (c) she's got a lot of ties to conservative donors and power brokers, not because she's so conservative but because she's a Washington insider who will just keep playing the game the way it's always been played without actually being an agent of change.
But till I get that done, here are links to some of my earlier posts showing why Hillary's not the right one:

Hillary's "Feminism" and Hillary's Friends
A Late Catch, But... A "Who's Who" of Vichy DINOs (Democrats In Name Only) Is Backing Hillary
Just What I Was Afraid Of
That's just a sample, but it'll help you get the idea. Thanks for swinging by!
