The Truth about Hillary

RealClearPolitics has a terrific post on some recent articles sighting Democrat insiders worrying about Hillary's ability to win a general election.

"More recently, Ruy Teixeira, co-author of The Emerging Democratic Majority, told the Daily News that 'people don't like to come out and say it because they don't like to tick her off, but privately most people don't think she can win.'"

Maybe it's just wishful thinking here at the OC Chronicle, but we've never really believed the HRC has a chance in a Presidential Election. Our theory is this: People always vote for the more likeable person, period. And even if the Republican's nominate someone as abrasive as Newt Gingrich, he'd still win over more voters than Hill. For most people I know, even many of those that agree with her views, listening to Hillary speak is like nails on a chalkboard. No one wants to live with that for four years of their lives.

Do they? Ugh.
