Da Moose is right, Hillary is making the sweet moves. If Bill's enormous charisma and obvious potential gave him the credibility to cross liberals on key policies (or symbols), Hillary's position as bugaboo of the right and liberal icon is allowing her to assume unorthodox stances on issues where progressives desperately need some creative repositioning. And it's freedom she's taking, at least if her efforts to stake out consensus ground on choice and tougher, but fairer, positions on immigration reform are admissible as evidence.

I've said it before, but after spending three years laughing at Hillary for President remarks, I'm starting to take them quite seriously. Now, if I could only power through The Right Nation and The Persian Puzzle, maybe I could get to Hillary's Turn and give you all a feel for her abilities as a campaigner. Ah, bookshelf, why must you mock me so?
