Tuesday is coming, tomorrow in fact, and on the eve of what will probably prove to be the most decisive single day in the Presidential primary races Walter Shapiro (at Salon) asks what do we really know about the Democratic candidates?

Mr. Shapiro offers some important questions and qualms he harbors about Ms. Clinton and Mr. Obama and how their Presidencies might shape up. Especially in light of the not so smooth beginnings that the last three elected Democratic Presidents (Kennedy, Carter, Clinton) got off to.

The short version is what to make of Ms. Clinton's experience and how it will shape the manner in which she governs; and what will happen when Mr. Obama is actually faced with adversity.

Summing up Mr. Shapiro's thoughts thus do them no justice though. Please go see for yourself, it won't take long.
