The Silver app is flawed because it limits you to direct national swings with different groups. Hillary won't do much better than Obama with Northeastern and Western whites (in fact she may do worse with the latter, looking at CO polls), but is likely to do much better with Southern whites, especially in the border states.
Saw him yesterday on MSNBC discussing the Syrian situation. He's young, fairly progressive, and a foreign policy mogul. He's too wet behind the ears to be a candidate in 2016 (before you say Obama, remember the DNC), but he'd be great at the bottom of a ticket IMO.

The symbol of Japan through both its militarist/war years (where he was the de jure absolute monarch, though not the top dog in practice) and its collapse, occupation, and massive recovery (where he was explicitly a figurehead). What are your opinions on him?
Dean/Murray Campaign Ad: American Labor Airing in the following states:
Narrator: Michael Bloomberg is no friend of the American worker. As mayor he's been described repeatedly as "anti-worker". As President, he'll continue Bush's reckless trade policies which have caused outsourcing of American jobs, all paid for by taxpayer money.
Dean: I'm Howard Dean and I approve this message, because we need a leader who stands with the American worker, not just for the wealthiest Americans.
