President Hillary? 

The current buzz about Sen. Clinton's inability/unwillingness to take a stand on NY Gov. Spitzer's plan to issue driver licenses to illegal immigrants provides an opportunity to talk about a notion I've had for quite some time.

Does anyone, supporter or opponent, really know what policies President Hillary Clinton will adopt on any subject? I think not. Based on her prior behavior, I believe it is safe to assume that a Hillary administration will lean pretty far left--think as a starting point the UK under Labor governments pre-Thatcher--but where will she stop?

It will be up to the Congress to protect the Republic from executive excesses, but if Hillary is elected with "long coattails," and given the current center of power in the Democratic Party (i.e., Kos Kids and George Soros) I can only hope that she won't have a veto-proof majority.

To quote multiple Star Wars characters, "I have a bad feeling about this."
