The “bad” news: yesterday’s New Hampshire primary clarified nothing.
The good news: yesterday’s New Hampshire primary clarified nothing.
On the right side, frankly, the fact that the GOP race is wilder and woolier than ever is a good thing; if I have anything to say about it, it’ll draw people out in droves on Super Tuesday, especially to the Minnesota caucuses. For reasons I’ve elaborated before, I’m glad to see McCain resurging, although I’m nowhere close to deciding who I want as a candidate yet.
As to the Dem side – more of the same. Much, much more.
With the almost-irrational hype over Obama this past few weeks. I was starting to wonder if Obama wasn’t close to re-capturing the woozy hype of the Kennedy clan – the style-and-appearance-over-substance delusions that impelled a generation of Americans to vote for a slate of hug toys. An irrational America is an America that listens to the Doors and thinks Abby Hoffman is groovy and that Kathleen Soliah is a solid citizen. So I’m deliriously happy to see that rumors of Hillary’s demise are premature, and her semi-trailer full of negatives is still solidly in the race.
