A question....

I see a recurring meme amongst folks on the Right who are attacking Hillary Clinton, along the lines that it's wrong for her to seek the 2008 Presidential nomination on the grounds that if she wins re-election to the Senate in 2006, winning the nomination would, in effect, mean that she'd be saying "Screw you" to the folks in New York who would have elected her to be their Senator. Senator Clinton would, in effect, be betraying her constituents.

My question is: did not the fine people of Texas endure just such a betrayal when the man they elected to a second term as their Governor in 1998 began seeking the 2000 Republican Presidential nomination almost before the ink was dry on his winning of that second term?

If your answer to that is "No", then with respect: Shut up about Senator Clinton betraying the people of New York.
