Re "Clinton's stature no guarantee of success," news analysis, Nov. 24 Although concerns regarding Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's loyalty to President-elect Barack Obama are legitimate, I question whether Clinton would allow her future ambitions to be quelled by refusing to support a very popular leader. Though Clinton has a fiercely loyal base and considerable power, she cannot afford to pursue a hard-headed foreign policy against her boss' will. If Obama's popularity wanes, Clinton could assert her own policies and begin to set herself apart, as she did during the campaign, but it would be foolish to appear as the lone dissenter before then.

Barack Obama revealed Wednesday that former President Clinton will campaign for him in the weeks leading up to election day. Relations between the pair became testy during the primaries, when Obama was challenging Clinton's spouse, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, for the presidential nomination. Obama and the former president didn't speak for nearly a month after the campaign ended. But they have made peace and the former president has offered to do whatever he can to help.

Re "Focus remains on Rev. Wright," May 1 Until the day of California's primary election in February, my support went to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. I changed my vote to Sen. Barack Obama, mainly because I didn't like the direction Clinton's campaign was headed or how she was presenting herself. Knowing that she appeared on "The O'Reilly Factor" and what she said in that interview, two thoughts come to mind. First, why would she ever validate Bill O'Reilly by appearing on his show?

Re "Triangulating her way over the cliff," Opinion, June 29 Arianna Huffington shows again why Democrats just don't get it. She laments Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's wishy-washy antiwar stance when she should be touting a candidate who actually has principles. Clinton puts her finger in the wind to find her beliefs. Until Democrats have a candidate with principles who is not just a far-left demagogue, they will lose elections. BILL FALLON Newport Beach Huffington accurately diagnoses the ills of the Democratic Party by stating that "Democrats need to draw sharp distinctions between themselves and the GOP."

Re "Kennedys for Clinton," Opinion, Jan. 29 Unlike her opponents, I believe Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is completely prepared to turn things around. While she may understand the political machine in ways that make her seem less like an innocent idealist than certain other candidates, I believe that an innocent idealist will be eaten alive by the realities of the job -- and if anyone knows those realities, it's Clinton. Face it, it's not 1960 any more. This is not the time to dream of idealism.

Re "Go away? Why should she?" Opinion, March 9 I find the misogyny directed at Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton loathsome. But I didn't vote for her. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice or Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.) would no doubt have come in for the same unfair treatment had they been in this race. Would I be asked to support either of them based on their plumbing? Calling me a traitor to the cause of feminism because I voted for Sen. Barack Obama is tantamount to calling me unpatriotic for not supporting the Patriot Act. My friends who do support Clinton have explained to me that she could never apologize for her Iraq authorization vote because, as a woman, she would be called weak.

Obama superdelegates: An article in Wednesday's Section A about superdelegates backing Sen. Barack Obama for president reported that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles) did not praise Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton when Waters announced she was switching her support to Obama. Waters, in a statement, actually called Clinton an extraordinary candidate, saying, "As an outspoken advocate on issues critical to women and children, I have great admiration for Sen. Clinton and know firsthand her commitment to our country."
