Hillary's Looming Electability Crisis

Talk of Hillary's electability (read: un-electability) is ratcheting up in the days prior to Super Tuesday, which will probably decide who becomes the Democratic nominee. I'd like to think I was ahead of the curve on this one. I personally know at least six Republicans (read: every Republican I know) who will vote specifically against her if she becomes the Democratic nominee. Those same people would vote for Obama if he gets the nomination.

Here's an article from Huffington Post which articulates my point.

There are moments in time when you see a slow-motion disaster unfolding before you, and you can only yell out and hope those around you notice in time. Now is such a moment for Democrats, and "in time" means before the Super Duper primaries this Tuesday across the nation. Hillary Clinton may be a good U.S. Senator, and has deep symbolic importance as our first viable female presidential candidate, but three factors represent crippling structural flaws for the Democratic ticket this November if she becomes our candidate.
