There is an idea out there that Republicans want Clinton to be the Democratic nominee (supposedly because she is easier to defeat), and this may be the preference of some party leaders, but a lot of Republican voters apparently have a very different view.  Pew has a new poll showing that Obama leads the Republican choice for Democratic nominee, well ahead of Clinton.  On the other side, more Democrats would prefer to see a Giuliani or McCain-headed ticket for the GOP.  Why Obama leads the field among Republican voters is frankly something of a mystery to me, but only 11% of Republicans want to see a Clinton nomination.  If she were really so vulnerable as some say, those numbers should be a lot higher.
