    nail-biter with Hillary at the top of the ticket.

    We won't have a mandate - or greatly increased majorities with a Hillary presidency - and that's why the conservative media pundits are pushing the Clinton as nominee message. It provides them a chance to salvage the down-ballot races AND they see a Hillary nomination as a way to retain the loyalty of their base, which had been disintegrating

    A Hillary nomination has huge consequences for both parties' futures.

      As I noted below, she becomes the Washington incumbent vs. Mitt Romney. He'll be able to count on the right to vote AGAINST her, meanwhile he'll be able to move towards the center and take advantage of her weakness among independents.

      Like I've always said, she's the candidate of the new DLC Democratic establishment which never won a majority AND lost Congress in 1994.

      Her winning would be great for her, but it would give away all the gains Democrats made in 2006.
