    Many men pleasure the president. Yet he has two wives.

      And what's more she cannot and will not be trusted by many Republicans that are beginning to doubt the wisdom of the Dems and are maybe willing to listen to an Obama or an Edwards, but not a blast from the past like Hillary.

      As I said before, I think she is very effective in the Senate, but she should not be the public face of the future of the Democratic party.

      I used to be disgusted, now I try to be amused.

        That is what this campaign cycle is about, not more PAST.  We have had it since 1988.  Sorry, maybe if another person with a different lastname was in office now, we would not have this "elistist" fatigue, but we do.  Geez, we act like there are NO OTHER OPTIONS out there, NO OTHER CANDIDATES out there and there are.  If Hillary had a lock on this, Obama would not have raised 25M+ for the primary, Edwards would not have raised 14M+ for the primary, they just would not have.  People do want a change and I think we will see it in the primaries.  Yes, we give Hillary her respect and due, but we do need a change in Washington.  Finally, I think the young people out there are going to be more critical this election cycle than ever.  Did you see the pre-interview that Chris Matthews gave before the Republican Debate?  There was one young woman who straight up said, "we need a Barack Obama on our side and we don't have it".  That states volumes.  Poll numbers now are early, watch after Labor Day.  Obama and Edwards do have support and raising money faster than Clinton.  Somebody out there is donating to their campaign and it is somebody like US.
