As a small addendum to the previous post, this from Republican John Rich, who voted for Clinton in Virginia:

The Clintons are a team. You get one, you get both. And that’s good news for Republicans like me: he’d be a steadying influence on Hillary’s more leftish notions.

Stated differently, he’d be a ballast towards the center. Bill is the reason I voted for Hillary in the Virginia primary. Not because I think she will be easier to beat than Obama. Rather, for damage control, hedging against a more-likely-than-not Democratic win in November.

Seems that she has admirers aplenty right now among Republicans.
