Hey bill - thanks for commenting our American Sexuality blog, by the way. I think its a great strategy on the part of the Republicans. I think that we've got an exceptionally strong field of candidates right now, and only one has been defined more by the right than by themselves. Hillary. That's what they're looking for, and I think that's why Rove has done what he did. I agree with you, though, that she's not a forgone loss for the dems if she wins the nomination, just easier to defeat than the others. she'll run a great campaign and she's got an excellent team. They did exactly same thing to John kerry in 2003 and it worked. It gave them the candidate they wanted.
I haven't met many GOPers who think like this.I've met Obama supporters who think the GOP thinks like this.Obama would be a far far weaker candidate against any of the GOP front runners in my opinion.
My name is John and I work on the Congresspedia.org wiki - a non-partisan wiki reporting project on Congress. I saw that you have been covering Illinois politics and stories on members of Congress from Illinois (among other things) and we'd like to put you on our blogroll for that state. Can you email me at SunlightUser2 [at] Sunlightfoundation.com?Thanks,John
