Buh-bye, Hillary

"I've got a headache THIS BIG."
"I've got a headache THIS BIG."

Maybe now Hillary and Bill will get it. All those hundreds of thousands of Democrats who have helped Barack Obama set new fundraising records just about every month (36 mil just in January) don't want the Clinton trauma-drama back in the White House. They don't want a candidate for President who has to promise her husband won't embarrass the nation again. They don't want to be led by someone who enthusiastically voted for the Iraq War, and still wants to station 75,000 American troops in that country on a semi-permanent basis. They don't want someone who guarantees another four years of nonproductive partisan bickering and sniping. And on. And on. And on. It's easy to launch into an extended rant about Hillary Clinton, but it won't be necessary much longer. Losing working-class, upper Midwest Wisconsin by 17 points, her ninth huge loss in a row, followed by a 3 to 1 defeat in Hawaii, means we can begin focusing on McCain v. Obama. And this time, the Democrats won't be weighed down with a candidate who supported the idiotic Iraq war before he was against it.
