    The Man of High Quality Punditry points out Bill Clinton’s obvious conflict of interest in advising Demo presidential candidates.

    Didn’t anyone teach them not to seek medical advice from funeral directors?

      I am not sure this conflict of interest really exists. It has long be rumored that Hillary is going to try for the White House in 2008, but I doubt it. She is too polarizing to even have a chance. Most Democrats seem to realize this important point. If you ask around, I think you will find very few Democrats willing to nominate Hillary.

    2. Jonathan Says:

      Agree that she is problematic as a candidate, but consider that she has already won a major election, which, even though it was in NY, means something. Also, whatever other Democrats may think about her, I think it’s clear from both her own and her husband’s behavior that they are working up to a presidential run in 2008. What can she lose?

    3. B of P Says:

      Perhaps you are right. She has very little to lose and a lot to gain by running in 2008, however, I suspect she will have about as much success as the Joe-mentous one. She’ll lead in the polls 18 months before Iowa simply because of her name, but her support will evaporate very quickly after that.
