Hm.. Maybe (I'm not sure) Hermione IS clever, but she learns all by the book. Ravenclaws have a brain that's ready to reason. Also, she is extremely brave. The only thing that disqualifies her for Ravenclaw is her lack of quick reasoning.

Also, she is stupidly brave, or bravely stupid. She is also stubborn, and willful. Pretty prideful as well. Therefore Gryffindor.

She's also supposed to be someone outside of stereotypes, thus the bullying in first year before she became friends with ""The-Boy-Who-Lived".

Now, I may be saying this because I have a fanfic obsession, but in my opinion, it is either one of two reasons:
1.) Dumbles is a manipulative and evil old fart who knew from the start that Hermione would be a good pawn with much potential, and thus forced the Sorting Hat to sort her into Gryffindor with a Confundus. I mean, it's even said in Goblet of Fire that if you have powerful (or dark) enough spells and magic, you can change even the oldest and most powerful magical artifacts. See More▼

I just looked back on my answer, saw my second bit/theory, and thought, "I can almost smell the salt in that...."

The sorting hat originally thought about putting her in Ravenclaw but her courage overcame her intelligence and she got put in Gryffindor!

She is all of them!!!
She is courageous- Gryffindor.
She is loyal to Dumbledor- Hufflepuff.
She is tricky- Slytherin (take note that not all slytherins are evil)
She is smart- Ravenclaw.

Yeah, I guess you could say that.

She's more courageous than she may be, and her smarts make her more courageous in this case.
