More Early Handicapping

Hillary's pollster, Mark Penn, provides the numbers to back up Dick Armey's worry that Hillary is a shoe-in.

OK, he doesn't actually show us any numbers. Instead, in a short, Drudge-linked item from, Penn claims Hillary would win "in a landslide" if the election were held today. Me, I don't follow polls this early in the game. I barely follow them during the election. Neither should you.

Remember that we're only two weeks past Clinton's miserable debate experience against Russert, Edwards & Obama. So what we really have here is Hillary's own pollster trying to frame tonight's debate back around the issue of Hillary's "inevitability." Not that there's anything wrong with that--just remember to take the story for what it is.
