So, Hillary Clinton is running for President. Quelle surprise, eh? I'm going to spend as much time as possible this year not blogging about the 2008 Presidential primaries, so let me say this now and get it out of the way: I'll be happy to support Hillary Clinton for President if she's the nominee. I'll be happy to support someone else if she's not. Like the other main contenders, she has her pros and cons - I pretty much agree with Kos' assessment of the top tier candidates (as does PDiddie), and Kevin Drum sums up the Hillster succinctly. Unlike 2004, I don't think anyone will spend too much time fretting about "electability". I think this one is the Dems' to lose (and I'm not the only one who sees it that way), so I say pick your favorite and make no apologies for it. And feel free not to be in a rush about it.

Some day I will have a preference, and I'll state it when I do. If I'm really lucky, I'll even get to cast a meaningful vote in March. But it will be several months before I begin to worry about that. Meanwhile, enjoy the spectacle as much or as little as you want. There's plenty of time to get serious about it later.

Charles, is that the correct link for PDiddie?

Yes, that's the right link. His first paragraph is about that Kos post.

Hillary running will take away resources for candidates that could actually win.

Not that I have a strong opinion or anything.
