I love it!
Honestly, for now, what strikes me is that Hilary Clinton could be making the same mistake as in 2007-2008, as in she seems to be building up a political machine rather than a political message. While she can still turn this around, she can still get outflanked by a charismatic democratic candidate with a stronger grip on a theme.
On the conservative side, its still a complete melee. For know, what scares me is inability of the party to rein in its political base toward the center. Its an old song, I know, but it becomes dire as the latino vote takes importance in the south. On the long run, it might threaten the GOP's dominance in Arizona and Texas, two states that are vital to its electoral prospects.
Its an especially sad thing for conservatives, since the latino electorate could be won over. Catholic and culturally conservative, many latino voters are not as impermeable to republican ideas as one would think. But the inability of the GOP base to moderate its positions on immigration and a few other social issues ensures that the democratic lead with this (growing) electorate grows.
