Jay Cost: Be Not Afraid of Hillary

On, Jay Cost wonders why Republicans are so concerned about Hillary. He finds it indicative of a great weakness in her political skills that everyone, left and right, is reporting on her attempts at positioning:

This is the sign of a bad politician. All politicians do the same things. They all change their views. They all move with the political currents. They are all flexible and pragmatic. What differentiates the good politician from the bad one is that you never notice that the good one is pragmatic. A good politician is as smooth as a well-aged, single malt scotch. Hillary is a bad politician. She is like that bottom shelf blended garbage the ABC sells for $12/handle.

Dancing Ox has written something similar on this blog, I believe. Maybe he's right. I'm still not letting my guard down.
