Shawn, you have to hand it to Hillary. She ingratiates her self with the Lefties, shows a sense of humor and says nothing that will come back to bite her in the general election. Even if she is not the netroots' favorite, her goal is to soothe the beast so she can maintain her chances in the general election. So long as she is not the object of their venom she can just keep saying entirely reasonable things like we should never rule out use of nuclear weapons. The netroots, can't I think, determine the Democratic nominee, but they can make her life miserable and her job in the general election more difficult. John Edwards can win their hearts but after today Hillary is the one breathing easier.
