Ah-ha! A recent Washington Post-ABC News poll has finally revealed how Democrats feel about Hillary Clinton. And the answer is—wait for it… wait for it…their feelings are mixed! Most of them think she displays solid leadership and strong family values, and that she’s pretty friendly as well. But only 37 percent say they would definitely vote for her at this stage. And those are Democrats; forget independents or, for that matter, Republicans who would gladly empty their bank accounts to help their party defeat her.

The best assessments of the pros and cons of a Hillary candidacy are two Washington Monthly pieces from a few months back, one of which says she’s totally electable, the other quite the opposite.
