Even in London....

Nowhere on this planet, apparently, can you avoid talk of Hillary Clinton running for the White House in 2008. Even the Brits, fresh off a close election for Tony Blair (a good man, despite what many of my fellow Kossacks say about him), are talking. And no, it's not the ultra-liberal Guardian, but rather the staid, conservative, benchmark London Times.

In this story, the reporter says that today's appearance with Newt Gingrich is a further effort to shed her "liberal" tag and run for President. In an interesting twist, though, the son-in-law of Richard Nixon, Ed Cox, is thinking of running against her. After Rudy declined, it was thought her reelection might be a cakewalk, but perhaps not now.

I don't know what to think of her possibly running for President. A win would cement the legacy of the Clintons as political powerhouses. I have my doubts that it would be right for the nation, though, and that's my barometer for deciding. Then again, it's pretty ridiculous that the next election is being looked at with the past one only about half a year old. Does that say something about our media, or does it say something about Bush's status? It's an interesting question.

Care to discuss what your reservations about a Hillary POTUS are? :)
