Politics HRC RX

All my smartest friends seem to be for Obama. They support him it seems mostly for grand reasons of political aesthetics: He represents a realignment; he’s not canned.
These are compelling reasons, particularly the notion that he may foster a realignment. His religious, hopeful appeal may obliterate the GOP base and turn out “Obama Republicans” taking back a portion of the “Reagan Democrats” that Reagan sucked off the blue collar Dem base nearly 30 years ago.
And so, I’m having a hard time sticking by my Democrat of choice, HRC! Yes, she’ll keep the old battle lines in place (and that may be a bad move … although, I sorta like it), but this article in the latest New Republic reminded me why I like her: She’s wicked policy smart.
