Hillary stays ahead - but who will be the Republican candidate?

Suggestions that last week's gang up by the boys in
the Democratic debate would damage Hillary's standing haven't yet been borne out by the polls, where she retains a strong lead in the contest for the Democratic nomination. There's a great piece by the insightful Joe Klein (he of Primary Colours fame) in the current issue of Time magazine about what she stands for. And I think Andrew Stephen in the New Statesman may well be right about her opponent being Mike Huckabee or Mitt Romney, not Rudolph Guiliani. To understand why, read this illuminating piece in the latest New Republic.
