Now, before you Hillary fans get your panties all in a wad allow me to explain. I am not a Hillary hater, I have other preferences for president, but I would take Hillary over any republican any day. And I don't say it will be bad because I believe that if Hillary wins the nomination she will not win the Presidency, I think she could very well win. So follow me below the jump and allow me explain.

As I would hope we are all aware, the republicans, as that bunch of liars are known, have been demonizing Hillary for years. And they have had plenty of help from the MSM. This is not Hillary's fault and it is quite unfair. But, be that as it may, that is how things are.

The problem as I see it is that those on the right after having listened to all of the lies and distortioins over the years have truly developed a deep seated hatred for Hillary. And I mean it when I use the word "Hatred", those people really hate her. Is it justified, no, but it is what it is. I doubt there is anyone they hate more with the possible exception of Ted Kennedy.

So why will it be bad for progressives?

If Hillary wins that nomination just imagine the dollars all those Hillary haters will pour into the republican coffers. Imagine how easy it will for the liars club, (Rush, Sean, Bill, Ann, Michelle, Glenn, Laura, etc), to whip their poor deluded listeners/readers into a campaign donating frenzy. All the way up and down the ticket, local to national, the republicans will have loads of extra money and volunteers to spread their misinformation, lies, and hate and elect people of dubious character whose only interest is supporting failed policies that benefit the wealthy and the corporations at the expense of most americans and the progressive cause.

In my opinion Hillary should not run. I think we would all be much better served by Hillary in the Senate than Hillary in the Whitehouse.

It's not fair, but that's the way I see it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
