Run Hillary Run

Andrew Sullivan discusses Hillary Rodham Clinton's strategy for securing the Democratic presidential nomination in his weekly Sunday Times of London column. I suggest that you read the whole thing, but here's the nut:
Running to the left of President George W Bush and to the right of him as well is not a feat most politicians are able to pull off. But Hillary has no alternative. And in that lies her dilemma. She has too liberal a past (and reputation) to be the Democratic right’s favoured candidate; and she’s become far too conservative in the Senate to win over the Democratic left.
