Simple answers to simple questions*


1. Gosh, AJ -- here we are a year out from the Democratic primaries, and they're already saying that Sen. Clinton has a lock on the nomination, with only Sen. Obama able to give her a real challenge. Why do you suppose that is?

Because of all the Democrats on earth, only Sens. Clinton and Obama are even theoretically capable of losing the presidential election in 2008.** If you were the GOP, whose nomination would you be moving heaven and earth to arrange?

2. But I thought the GOP was insisting Sen. Clinton was unbeatable! WTF?

The GOP said the same thing about John Kerry in 2004, until he had safely secured the nomination. So, y'know, see above.

This has been another edition of simple answers to simple questions.* Carry on. :D
