William A. Jacobson:

Hillary is the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee. She has a large double-digit lead over other potential contenders.

The one thing Hillary doesn’t have, however, is grassroots enthusiasm. Her support as the presumptive nominee is a mile wide and an inch deep. She’s popular because of name recognition and organizational power. No one wants to be on Bill and Hillary’s enemies list.

But Hillary has an image problem, as reflected in this Jay Leno appearance, via The Daily Caller:

Comedian Jay Leno says he likes presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, but she just seems so old.

Speaking of Clinton on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday, Leno commented, “I don’t see the fire.”

“Her and Elizabeth Warren are almost the same age,” Leno said, comparing Hillary to the Massachusetts senator beloved by the left wing of the Democratic Party. “And I see Elizabeth Warren come out — ‘boom’ — throwing punches. ‘Boom, boom, boom, boom.’”

“And I like her,” Leno continued, speaking of Hillary. “But she seems to be sort of, she seems very slow and very — I don’t see that fire, you know, that fire that I used to see, that I see in Elizabeth Warren. Because I say to people, ‘how much younger is Elizabeth Warren than Hillary?’ And people go, ‘oh, 15 years.’ No! 18 months.”

Elizabeth Warren, by contrast? She’s intriguing:

I stand by my prediction that should Elizabeth Warren challenge Hillary, Hillary’s support would evaporate.

But Warren has her own problem. She may not be electable in a national general election, as this Hillary money man worries, Via Washington Free Beacon:
