My concerns with a Hillary Clinton nomination

Cross posted, with minor edits at "Daily Obama"...

What I want to do here is detail why I'm deeply afraid that a Hillary Clinton nomination, should she manage to win that and a victory in the general election, could be a very bad thing for the long-term prospects of Democrats and progressives.

Please don't get hung up on that word "concern".  I think, should Clinton win the nomination, she'll likely beat McCain in the general.  This is a discussion of long-term issues.  History doesn't end with the next inauguration.

A simple suggestion, for those who want change

I've read with increasing frequency and frustration the tendency of Democrats (perhaps at the urging of some well-placed trolls) to explode with frustration and vows of retribution every time the Democrats exhibit their known problems of inside-the-beltwayism and consultantitis.

We all know, I think, that when it comes right down to it, bailing on Party participation and supporting Democratic candidates in November isn't a realistic option.  The former will simply leave the Party in the hands of the consultants who thrive regardless of whether they win, and the latter will simply leave the country in the hands of those who are most determined to screw us all.  Neither is a palatable option, yet change is clearly needed.

I have a suggestion that might just make a little more of a difference.  Feel free to tell me if this is a foolish idea...
