    ...on this particular piece.

    Even top Democrats who plan to support Hillary worry about her two sides. One side is the idealistic public servant who wants to make the world a better place. The other side is darker, stemming from old insecurities; this is the side that causes her to make decisions from a place of fear and to second-guess herself. It dulls her sense of ethics and leads to ends-justify-the-means wayward ways. This is the side that compels her to do anything to win, like hiring the scummy strategists Dick Morris and Mark Penn, and greedily grab for what she feels she deserves.
    That's not "Clinton loathing". That's pretty accurate. We all have insecurities that drive us to make strategic errors in judgement. Her survivor instincts in the past have caused her to value on the Penns of the world more than any other advisors.

    Can and will she assemble a team that will balance some defensive vulnerability in exchange for seizing and maintaining the initiative?
