WASHINGTON (AP) — Looking past the presidential nomination fight, Democratic leaders quietly fret that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton at the top of their 2008 ticket could hurt candidates at the bottom.

They say the former first lady may be too polarizing for much of the country. She could jeopardize the party's standing with independent voters and give Republicans who otherwise might stay home on Election Day a reason to vote, they worry.

In more than 40 interviews, Democratic candidates, consultants and party chairs from every region pointed to internal polls that give Clinton strikingly high unfavorable ratings in places with key congressional and state races.

"I'm not sure it would be fatal in Indiana, but she would be a drag" on many candidates, said Democratic state Rep. Dave Crooks of Washington, Ind.

Unlike Crooks, most Democratic leaders agreed to talk frankly about Clinton's political coattails only if they remained anonymous, fearing reprisals from the New York senator's campaign. They all expressed admiration for Clinton, and some said they would
publicly support her fierce fight for the nomination — despite privately held fears.

The chairman of a Midwest state party called Clinton a nightmare for congressional and state legislative candidates.

I imagine she will end up the primary candidate and Obama the VP. What a socialist pair that will be.
Nothing I will feel comfortable supporting. I don't see any moderates on that side of the fence at all.

I quit being a Democrat a long time ago - don't really care what they do
to themselves anymore.

My simple rule of thumb is that ALL politicians are a bunch of crooked
liars and cheats.

Other than that, I'm simply crazy about them!

You know, I think that says it all. You can't be in the business of pleasing one, without pleasing the other, and the one is going to get upset when you're pleasing the other, and then the other one is going to get upset because they're not pleased that you're trying to please the other ....... Confused?!?!? That's politics!!!! :D
