Show-Me Skepticism About Hillary

Here's a piece about Hillary Clinton's presidential ambitions that's definitely worth reading.

Apparently, Democrats in Kansas and Missouri (the Show-Me State) are concerned about Hillary Clinton running for president on the grounds that she has too much baggage and would galvanize the other side. John Hancock, head of the Missouri Republican Party, seems to welcome the idea of Hillary's candidacy.

Why are these reactions worth noting? Because Missouri is the biggest bellwether state in the country. It almost exactly mirrors the nation's demographic, economic and political composition, and went with the winning presidential candidate in every election of the 20th century.

If Democrats there are nervous about Hillary, that's good news for Republicans nationwide.
