    I'll vote for her if she runs, but not really that enthused about the notion. I think there are some better possibilities out there. I still have doubts about how progressive she'd be -- for those who've been complaining about Obama, do they really think Clinton would be better? I also still have a bad taste from her support of IWR and Kyl-Lieberman, and she's never walked those back to he best of my knowledge. I worry that she's going to want to prove she can be just as big a hawk as the boys.

    I once said, "If Hillary runs, I'm voting Green"...well, the country doesn't have the luxury for me and millions like me to sit out an election, so I'll still vote for her, but it will be with a distinct lack of enthusiasm.

      If I counted only my enthusiastic votes, I have never really voted for anyone for President.  Believe me, I was not happy about Carter in 1980, Mondale in 1984, Dukakis in 1988 etc.  

      But if the choice is between Hillary and, say, Ted Cruz, would you really find that choice as meaningless?

      I support Hillary with open eyes.  She has her flaws, as do we all.

      But watch the movie Lincoln.  What good is it to know true North if we can't get there?

      I'd definitely prefer her to a Republican, and even in a state as safe as MA, wouldn't feel the luxury to vote green in protest, but I'd prefer to have a candidate who's a bit more liberal (Assuming, of course, the candidate could win - I'd go for Hillary in a primary if I thought a more liberal candidate were much less likely to win the general).
