Personal Asides: Hillary's Win in New Hampshire Leads to Seven Conclusions.

Hillary's Win.

Hillary's come-from-behind win in New Hampshire tells me seven things. First, no matter what Billy Kristol thinks, female tears... adroitly held back and captivatingly displayed... helps. So watch the tear ducts well up at strategic points in the future. I was right about that, guys.

Second, I'm not willing to say Barack Obama won't get the final nod, because I think he will-but there's a dump truck load of stuff coming down the road with his name on it, special delivery from Hillary. You're going to see an end to the nauseatingly saccharine media honeymoon very shortly now since the Big Feet on TV realize they have been made suckers of by buying into that goofy Rorschach inkblot test where they see "hope-hope-hope" and "change-change-change" in every mundane sentence and gesture he employs.

Continuing with No. 2: ... And it's good he gets the same critical examination as everyone else must get. Earlier I watched Bill Clinton explain something that I had never been aware of. That oft-used claim that Barack uses that he never voted for the Iraq War while Hillary did is spuriously misstated-and it isn't Barack's fault but the adulated media that he wasn't called on it. None other than veteran anti-Iraq senator Chuck Hagel voted for the resolution because he... and all other senators... were told by Coni Rice that there would be other submissions to Congress before war would be engaged. Dear Barack the wunderkind never specified that and the media were only to glad not to research it. Well I for one didn't know it. You'll see a lot more healthy examinations coming of Barack Obama from now on.

Three: The little lady gave me a glimmer tonight... just a glimmer... of what the old Democratic party of patriotism used to have. She said that she would end the war the right way-meaning, I took it, with honor. I never had the view that Obama who is a direct descendent of the McCarthy-McGovern hybrid cared a whit about honorable end. To me he is and was always a very weak candidate, a weed blowing in the wind, reacting to the cross-currents of breeze. I feel she has a mettle that is a distinct improvement.
