Who is the best Democrat strategist? By far, Hillary Clinton. Sun Tzu teaches not to engage in battles that you can't win. Looking at the current position of President Bush, she has correctly concluded that no Democrat candidate could beat him this year. However, she also knows that things can change at any time. So she is constantly positioning herself so that--if the president makes a mistake, leaving himself
open to successful attack--she, not one of the other candidates, can win the nomination.
