Virtually Unopposed, Sen. Clinton still only managed 55% in Michigan.

That's going to leave a mark. It would have been awesome if uncommitted had received a plurality of votes, but a pretty clear mesage as to the undesirability of Sen. Clinton, even amongst Democrats, was sent in Michigan.

The people that are for her, are strongly for her, but the people that are against are twice as strong in their hatred (and for many it is outright hatred). That's not the formula for success in the general election.

If she beats Sen. Obama, expect a lot of his supporters to sit out the general election, and a lot of people be motivated to vote against Sen. Clinton rather than for her opposition.
