    I'll bad mouth her now too.

    Well, not really.  I like her.  I do.  And I will most likely vote for her in 2016.  But I do hope she gets a primary from the left that is credible, and knocks her off in a few places so that she has to earn the nomination.

    I have 3 big reservations about her:
    1. She ran a terrible campaign in 2008.  Yes, Obama's campaign was perfect but he doesn't knock her off unless she runs and outdated incompetent campaign.  And I don't want that to happen again in 2016.

    2.  Her husband.  He gives a great speech but he thinks he owns the Democratic party.  (Do not be surprised if Hillary goes with all the DLC retreads to run her next campaign instead of doing the obvious thing of going with Axelrod and Plouffe.)

    3. She's too establishment on some really important issues.  Our next nominee should be one who declares that the drug war is a giant mistake that we can't afford anymore.  And who recognizes that our Israel policy is hurting us more than it helps.

    So I'm glad she beat all but one of the Republican Senators in coming around on marriage equality.  But let's not treat her like a nominee in waiting.
