What's with men and Hillary?

Just watched Meet the Press. Tim Russert and two political consultant, McMahon and Murphy were spinning like mad against Hillary. Do I detect a woman-can't-really be president message here? Some questions: If Obama and McCain wind up as the nominees, does anyone think Obama can beat McCain? Could Clinton beat McCain? On the likeability issue: George W. was likeable; he's been a disaster. Do we care if our president is likeable, or do we care that they know what they're doing?
