She resigns her post as Sec. of State to run against him in the primaries. Discuss with Primary Maps.

My Map -

Obama

Clinton

There is a loud group of "progressives" who love Obama no matter what he does because he is black. There reaction will be "Hillary iz su racest fer runnng gnst obuama cuz hez lik non-whte n hez gut swag!"

This attitude will save the day, and Obama will win every state outside the South.

Would she do enough damage to sink Obama in the fall campaign?  I am thinking no, but a primary might cost him Ohio, Florida, and maybe the popular vote:



Obama/Biden 49.X 285 EV
Romney/Ryan 49.Y 253 EV

VA would be decided by <1000 votes.

Which makes me wish that she had run and had her reputation destroyed so that we could actually have a competitive primary field this year and the Democrats would have excorcized the influence of the Clinton's.

Different election, different time. I think we can do better now.

Not without the Clinton coalition, e.g competitiveness among moderate, suburban whites.
