A lot can change in four years, but if Kerry loses in November, the nomination might be Hillary’s for the taking:
Delegates to next week’s Democratic National Convention already have an idea about 2008 if presidential candidate John Kerry should lose this fall: They would favor Hillary Clinton over John Edwards as their next standard-bearer.
An Associated Press survey found that the first-term New York senator is the choice of more than a quarter of the delegates while Edwards, recently tapped by Kerry to be his running mate, was favored by about 17 percent.
Of course, even if Kerry wins, he might turn out to be another Jimmy Carter. And that could make Hillary the preferred Dem choice in ’08, too.
Sharp readers here already know how I feel about Hillary Clinton.
