Hillary's troubles

The Spectator lists the reasons why Hillary Clinton enters the 2016 campaign in a worse position than 2008.
Despite talk about her presidency’s predestination, Hillary faces formidable obstacles that her high name recognition now papers over. The advantages she has today she had in 2008 — when she had them to greater degrees and even then they were insufficient to secure the nomination let alone the presidency.
Additionally, she has two new serious disadvantages. She is out of step with her party’s driving force — the force that Democrats cannot win without. And she will not be running against an unpopular administration; she will have to defend one and simultaneously separate herself from it.
Still think she'll run?
