Since polls generally show her trouncing all the other presidentially-minded Democrats in hypothetical elections, you'd think that Hillary would have enough influence to call the recall as she sees it. Surely she doesn't have to tow the line for anyone's political machine.

"I'm just going to do everything I can - until informed otherwise - to fight against the recall. Right now, as far as I know, we're all fighting against the recall."
(As quoted by Roll Call and picked up by the Orange Country Register)
Others in New York's dine-at-Elaine's political elite seem to be more firmly against the recall.
