When Bruce Bartlett made the conservative case for Hillary Clinton in his syndicated column, I was not persuaded. I am a little more understanding of the Republicans voting for Hillary in Texas and Ohio, but I’m not sure this is the greatest idea either.
Over the course of this race we’ve watched Rudy Giuliani seem inevitable and then flame out. We’ve seen John McCain flame out and then seem inevitable. On the Democratic side, we’ve watched Hillary Clinton seem inevitable and then less so. Then we saw Barack Obama look unstoppable but if the polls hold up, he will look less so after tonight.
Given all that uncertainty, do we really at this point have any strong reason to believe we know who will be the easiest Democrat to beat a few months from now? It seems better to just vote the candidate you most want to be president.
