Hillary not quite so inevitable anymore

By Libby

This YouTube of a former Clinton campaign organizer who switched to Obama has been making the rounds today. The backstory is rather interesting too. But I suspect the bigger blow to Clinton's candidacy came from Wyoming's Democratic chair who says his constituents, rightly or wrongly, just loathe Hillary and if she's the nominee, it will destroy the party in the state.

I know that any Democrat is going to suffer attacks from the GOP smear machine, but I continue to think that the conventionally wise underestimate CDS. It's not just Republicans. It infects Democrats too. I've never understood why the party leaders thought elevating the one candidate that would start out of the gate saddled with her own derangement syndrome was a good idea.
