Run, Hillary, Run!
With early numbers like I’m seeing, she could have the longest coattails of any recent candidate. And with the Republican gerrymandering, it’s going to take a lot of long coattails to win back the house.
It would also be so, so gratifying to see the GOP Southern Strategy, that they have used since Nixon, finally collapse. A Democrat winning Texas and Kentucky? Still a long shot, but oh so sweet a possibility….

Message to the Republican Party: be afraid, be very afraid.
Hillary Clinton stands atop of the Democratic 2016 scrum, set to resume where Bill left off. A second Clinton candidacy would likely put the white vote in play and jeopardize the GOP’s dominance in the Old Confederacy. Recent polls put Hillary ahead of possible Republican challengers in vote-rich Texas and in Kentucky, home of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Tea Party favorite Rand Paul.
Unlike her husband, Hillary is personally disciplined. Unlike Barack Obama, she has demonstrated an ability to connect with beer-track voters across the country.
