"Hillary's Mom Lives With Her"

This flashes across the screen in the latest spot attempting to humanize Senator Clinton.

I'm certainly not a blind Hillary hater, but I just can't buy this "Hillary the mom, Hillary the daughter" gimic. It seems as if women running for high political office often need to walk a fine (and unfair) line. You have to be tough, but not too tough.

Is Hillary too tough? Is it hurting her primary chances with women? Reid thinks so, and he sees the candidate with the more compelling personal story--namely Obama--making some headway with Clinton's "natural constituency." Oprah helps, too.
