The Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart details the five stumbling blocks her ladyship put in her own way:
-- Not bothering to vote in many elections over the last 20 years.
-- Refusing to say she'd back the Democratic Party candidate against Mayor Bloomberg next year.
-- Despite her enormous wealth, not contributing much to Democratic candidates.
-- Avoiding the press, and answering only a few questions with generalities about her family.
-- Refusing to make any financial disclosures until after she's been anointed.
Any one of these presumptuous stances would have long ago ruled out a lesser mortal.
