I generally try to steer away from Hillary-bashing. There is a lot of irrational hatred of her out there, and a lot of it is sexist in nature. While I do feel like she is somewhat of an opportunist, and make no bones about my strong preference for Obama, I'd be perfectly happy with Hillary as the Democratic nominee. While his foreign policy platform is more progressive, her domestic platform is rather to the left of his.
On the other hand, this story makes one take wonder if there isn't something to all that Clinton hatred. If Hillary is the nominee (an increasingly big if) than the Rovians can probably sink her candidacy on this story alone.
