Hillary...Itchy...And So Forth

This is really good analysis of the problems Hillary Clinton could face.  In an ideal world, she could rack up a 38 state win and bring the House with her in 2016.  But there is also something worrisome about what she chooses to fight for and where her allegiances really are.

I'm also not convinced she has great political chops, which could make some of her troublesome tendencies worse - kind of the way it did for Kerry and Gore.  The country has changed and I think she would still win.

But Democrats need legislative majorities, because the GOP simply isn't interested in governing.
