Garrison Keillor made a good point yesteday in that 'other paper' in town. ( I used the word 'other'--hope that doesn't make me 'racist' OMG!)
Here's less than 10%--"As our story continues, we find Sen. John McCain resting in his tent, plotting his fall campaign, as the Democrats continue the longest primary in human history, which has left the pundit club and the blogoswamp with nothing new to say whatsoever. You might as well write about your sock drawer. Hillary Clinton is a great woman and a leaden campaigner who makes even loyal supporters want to crawl behind the couch, and Barack Obama has lost his charisma—it wore off him like tread off a tire. I love him like a brother, and my brothers have no charisma either.

Nor do I. What I have is self-consciousness, far from the same thing."
Wanna see the charisma off like a tire? Watch Barack analyze the MOTIVES of a guy who wanted his picture. Does he really believe that this level of public figure gets to say somebody cannot 'profit' from taking his photograph? The version below lacks any 'news anchor' saying the fan is 'rude' repeatedly. http://blogs.usatoday.com/onpolitics/2008/04/scenes-from-the.html
Garrisson has a point---Clinton is a leaden campaigner because, unlike Obama, she's lived and probably guided many a campaign and knows how tough it can get. She's also survived and FUNCTIONED WHILE THE MEDIA WAS IN CONSTANT ATTACK MODE. The only benefit Dems get from the Obama race is: we learned what republicans can do in our primaries and can now change it; the media can't be in so constant attack mode against her--looks bad when they're so nice to the other team. That will end after the convention, folks. And then we need somebody who either doesn't attract all the negative press (like Edwards) or who knows how to handle themselves around a bunch of cameras. That bit in Philly yesterday was an embarrassment.

It is nice to know many and dangerous issues only happen at 3AM, and with one phone call Hillary thinks she can magically make them dissappear.

These are desperate acts by a desperate person to NOT FACE the REALIZATION she is NOT going to be president. It is now
showing with April Fool's Jokes, 3AM phone calls, praising the Republican candidate and a host of other things.

How Sad!

AFTER THIS LOSS, SHE WON'T BE ABLE TO RUN FOR DOG-CATCHER!
