Clinton, Obama: Who can beat McCain?

Must read! Looking ahead to the general election, and more importantly, the Electoral College math, bringiton at Corrente provides a rich, lengthy analysis on who's more electable.

Shorter version:

Hillary Clinton has the best chance of beating John McCain, and by a substantial margin.

Also check the update via Paul Maslin, former pollster for Bill Richardson and Howard Dean. His outlook on Obama's chances of beating McCain beyond 238 Electoral College votes are “a harder slog”.
