"I, too,wish Hillary would run. The resulting landslide against her would shut her big mouth forever."

Here in NY, many of us said the same thing when Her Heinous deemed to run for the Senate in 2000.

Go ask Sen. Lazio how that turned out.

Recipe for disaster: To one part Hillary running add one part democrat voter fraud, one part media bias, and one part republican ineptitude.

I'm in New England, not New York, but I was devestated when Lazio lost to her. It was a nightmare.

Fortunately, Bush is no Lazio and the majority of the
nation doesn't vote like New Yorkers.

Lazio was a lousy candidate, for a couple of reasons. First of all was the late start he got, so he didn't have real name recognition (not his fault). Second, given his late start, the moron took off the better part of a month during the campaign. Meanwhile, to give credit where credit is due, Hitlery visited every county in New York.

I do wish that she'd run. It would be like McGovern in '72. She will do well in the cities/states along the coasts, plus Chicago, but will get creamed everywhere else. It will be Red vs. Blue like in 2000, only more so. Hitlery doesn't cut it in the South or the heartland, only in those areas seriously infected by lieberalism. An additional handicap is her personality and history.

Alas...poor Lazio entered the campaign late (due to Guiliani's troubles) and subsequently was behind in fund raising, Lazio ran a poor campaign. He did not effectively debate Hillary, did not question her on positions. He did not seemed prepared. In a debate, when Lazio went over to Hillary's side of the stage to get her to sign a pledge...her campaign just made her a 'victim' again. That Lazio was 'invading' her space, that he acted as a spousal abuser. Lazio never did get untracked.

While I am not about to write off the viability of a Hillary campaign for President, I'm not sure her victory in New York is a reason to be especially worried, in and of itself.

While she won election, her campaign can hardly be considered impressive. Despite running against a no-name Republican who ran a late-starting, ineffective campaign, Hillary only won by 11 points; this in a liberal stronghold of a state that Al Gore carried by a whopping 25 points over George W. Bush.

Considering that the Hillary vote lagged far behind that of the Democrats' standard-bearer, in one of the bluest states in the country, I am unconvinced how her message will play out in less blue places such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Missouri, Florida, et. al.

I'm not discounting her by any means. But she has to prove that she's not so polarizing a political figure that she can win outside of the traditional bastions of liberalism.
