That's right. According to the AP, she's leading Barach Obama for the Democrats.
Why winning is losing? That's hard to explain, but it seems that Democrats who grab the early lead in polls are not likely to win the election. A Democrat may in fact win, but, if the polls and history follow the trend, it will not be Hillary Clinton.
The AP article cites memeories of early Dem leaders
- Edmund Muskie in 1972
- George Wallace in 1976
- Ted Kennedy in 1980
- Gary Hart in 1988
- Mario Cuomo in 1992
- Joe Lieberman in 2004

And remember fellas (and gals?), she's married.

And, if you are so inclined, drop a quarter or two into the box. It'll be used as needed, and, 10% (or more) will go to a local charity.
