From the latest Sienna College poll:

"In prospective 2008 presidential races, former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Senator John McCain would both beat either Senator Hillary Clinton or former Vice President Al Gore. Giuliani beats Clinton 48-42 percent and Gore 48-44 percent. McCain top Clinton 46-42 percent and Gore 47-44 percent.

“Two formidable Republicans have the early edge over two heavyweight Democrats in what has long been seen as one of the ‘bluest’ states in the nation.,” Greenberg said. “And the fact that Gore does better than Hillary against either Rudy or McCain will certainly put the pressure on New York’s junior senator to try and run up a big victory in her re-election battle this fall.”

A month or so ago, I had a heated discussion with a buddy of mine about our junior senator's chances of winning a POTUS election.

I said it was impossible as she would get crushed in the Electoral College tabulations with blue states like Pennsylvania going against her and red states remaining red.

He believed otherwise as women would vote for her.

Only a Democrat would think gender trumps all other qualifications. (And race for that matter!)
