She was ready for her close up last night, Mr. DeMille!
I, for one, can't imagine Hilary actually working *for* someone else in
any kind of job in the usual way. No matter what it is, it's about
Hilary. Just look at her speech last night. Her speech was about
herself, McCain's was an attack piece on Obama, and Obama's speech was
about our nation's future.
I predicted that we would soon see exactly what Ma Clintin's made of.
In fact, it's shaping up to be the perfect storm, much more so than if
either candidate had won sooner. With each passing day, "the next
President of the United States" (as Terry McAuliffe introduced her last
night) moves onward toward a less and less ethical Final Solution to the
Now she turns, by her own admission, to the process of making
superdelegates "change their minds". There has to be some way of
reversing Obama's lead in pledged delegates (i. e., elected, in the
DemNatCom Newspeak). If ordinary oratory falls short, maybe more
Cajun-style approaches remain. It's even possible, for instance, that
if this particular set of superdelegates aren't willing to change their
minds by any means necessary, some other set of superdelegates might.
It's hard to entertain the possibility of this spoiled little girl
stealing the nomination, without getting extremely upset. But that's
what you get with a candidate whose political career is entirely
derivative from that of her husband, with more potentially damaging
baggage than all the other candidates put together, and whose coalition
consists mostly of old ladies, racists, and the very ignorant.
Here's a great website where you can keep an eye on this horrible
spectacle. It's updated often and is completely unbiased:
