Hedge his bets how? He certainly didn't have any stake in the first Clinton presidency and did pretty well then, why would he need any stake in a hypothetical second Clinton presidency?

I think your ideas are good. What do you think of Bob Woodward predicting Cheney will be the GOP's candidate in `08?

The profit motive fits in with your previous analysis of Hillary, B-dog. She makes such a great media candidate for the same reason (you say) she makes a lousy political candidate - because she elicits such polarized opinions, with very few who don't know or don't care about her. Both Hillary bashing and Hillary praising have a long pedigree, and they both sell -and maybe they even reinforce each other.
