I think she would also suck at debating...
Belive you're right. For most of her political career, she has managed to avoid unscripted venues that might prove embarrassing or reveal inconsistencies. This has unquestionalby been expedient for her, but it has not prepared her to run in '08. Her presidential rival will likely be far more skilled and prepared than Rick Lazio was. It will be fun watching this since Hilliary's debating skills are very suspect and she clearly hates being exposed and vulnerable. That having been said, her handlers will be sure to "coach her up" over the next few years.

Hillary is the product of a time so distant now... She honed her skills in a different world. The leftist paradigm described by Saul Alinsky is inappropriate for the internet world of today. The organs of mass communication have changed utterly, and the means of mobilizing mass opinion are now highly decentralized.
This makes Hillary obsolete. Her echo chamber of sycophants won't let her know this, though.
The only danger is that Hillary and her cohorts on the far left may try to lash out at the internet as they come to realize that the jig is up. I don't know what good it will do them, but it still worries me.

(Fortunately, fhe Bill of Rights doesn't include the word 'is'.)
No debates will be allowed - just soft-ball questions to her as she sits "pretty in pink" on a raised platform under a portrait of honest Abe Lincoln
For those that don't remember, this was the gig where the Beast was interviewed in the Whitehouse by the press about her role in Whitewater
