Andrew Sullivan on Hillary Clinton

Intriguing article by Andrew Sullivan on Hillary Clinton's prospects for gaining the Democratic nomination and perhaps Presidency as well.

I find this fascinating as this is seems to be another example of someone with meticulous credentials on one side of the political spectrum being able to bring that side into the centre. Many of the positions which Ms Clinton takes just like many of the positions which President Clinton took would be unpalatable to Democrats if proposed by Republicans (Welfare to Work being an example).

Now, I may be stretching a bit but it seems that to bring about reform within Islam similar people are needed. Fulfilling the criteria which most moderately religious people think are essential while swaying them through passion and reason on fundamental points of fairness and justice.
