This writer is not a fan of the Democratic presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton, whose centrist politics and certified insider status mark her as a something less than the change agent the country is going to need after two terms of Bushism. But a certain penchant for political realism leads me to point out a fact about the fast-starting 2008 presidential race that merits mention: The senator from New York is opening up a significant lead not just among grassroots Democrats but Americans in general.
None of this means that Hillary Clinton should be the Democratic nominee.
What it does mean, however, is that she may well be the nominee.
And if she nominated, she may well be elected.
