I think she sounds good, and I would urge liberals to not get too panicky about some of her positions.  There are a lot of people in this country that are in no mood to go on a jihad against guns.  She’s not a centrist so much as a Democrat that is not always doctrinaire, and that can be very useful.  She will have to work between now and November 2010 to win over voters in the 5 Boroughs that know her not, but it sounds like she is not adverse to work and campaigning.  I say give her a chance.
