Hillary Worries About Gore

According to the Political Wire, Hillary Clinton has recently intensified her attacks on the Bush administration in an attempt to match those of potential Democratic challenger, Al Gore. Gore has become more involved in criticism of the president recently, and many are beginning to speculate that if he runs in 2008, he'll be to the left of other Democratic candidates, especially in light of the war, which many Democratic Senators and Representatives supported.

Five years ago, Democrats would have never guessed that "Al Gore" and "liberal" would be used in the same sentence. At least outside of the Rush Limbaugh studio. Gore was simply the boring moderate, trying to establish himself as a New Democrat, yet strangely, not attempting to take credit for any of the accomplishments of the Clinton era.

I like Hillary. She's smart, a good politician, and has shown herself to be a pretty good senator. I even read her book and was impressed at the way she could spin situations even now.

I think she'd be a lousy choice for the Dems for 2008. People are still polarized about her and I can't imagine that she'd win.

Unfortunately I don't have a truly viable alternate to suggest right now. Al Gore may not be the best choice either- he lost once already. Gen. Wesley Clark was in NJ recently, to start the stumping process; I would like to hear what he has to say, but it's too early to endorse him yet. John Edwards would be an interesting candidate, but he was on a losing ticket already (see Al Gore, above.)
