I know I'm starting to sound like a Hillary supporter over here. Full disclosure: I am still undecided, as my feelings keep evolving. But I'm just riveted by the spectacle of her running. Not merely *her* running, but the fact that a viable woman candidate is.
So check this out: According to the most recent Newsweek poll (61,093 responses, 51% believe American voters would elect a woman to the White House in 2008, while 41% do not (8.4% aren't sure). Everyone I talk to around this town these days (and granted, I'm talking about a rarefied urban island) seems to feel a woman can't win. The Newsweek poll is (as they themselves note) not scientific. Has anyone seen a recent one that is?
