Guardian: Clinton to accept Secretary of State offer

November 18th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Just as I’m really beginning to sour on the idea of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State– and feeling hopeful that no news organization has yet corroborated HuffPo’s initial report last week that she had been offered the job– The Guardian is reporting today that Clinton plans to accept the job offer.  I doubt they’d be reporting [...]

Hillary Clinton for Secretary of State?

November 14th, 2008 · No Comments

There are a lot of reasons why this could work.  But for my money, the best reason for President-elect Obama is that it avoids the following nightmare scenario, as predicted by a group of hedge fund managers watching last week’s election returns in New York: The host predicted that President Obama would have a miserable term and face [...]

Tina Fey rocks Sarah Palin’s world on SNL

September 14th, 2008 · No Comments

In case you missed it, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler opened the new season of Saturday Night Live with a hilarious parody of Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin– the two queens of train wreck politics– in what is instantly one of the best SNL political sketches ever. You knew it was coming, you just didn’t [...]

Defeating Clintons one of the great moments in black history

May 7th, 2008 · No Comments

Live-blogging the North Carolina and Indiana primaries last night, Andrew Sullivan rightly credited African-American voters for ultimately taking down the Clintons: No group was more loyal to them than African-Americans; and in the end, like everyone else, African-Americans realized that the Clintons are frauds, disloyal to the core, cynical to their finger-tips, and finally, finally, [...]

North Carolina and Indiana Democratic primary predictions

May 5th, 2008 · No Comments

This is the quickest and easiest prediction I’ve ever had to make, and it’s because I figured out after Pennsylvania how to call these things.  These Democratic primaries have nothing to do with analysis or momentum.  Here’s how it works.  Whatever leads to the most inconclusive, meaningless, expected, drag-this-out-another-month result is exactly what will happen.  [...]

Psychoanalyzing the media elite’s elite double standard

May 5th, 2008 · No Comments

Ever since Bitter-gate broke last month, I’ve been trying to figure out how the media could knowingly side with Hillary Clinton and John McCain– two Washington lifers, both worth at least $100 million– in painting a black man raised by a single mother on food stamps who a little over a decade ago was making [...]

Hillary Clinton’s Kentucky Derby pick finishes second and dies

May 4th, 2008 · No Comments

Via Halperin: Hillary Clinton enthusiastically picked a filly named Eight Belles to win the Kentucky Derby and compared herself to the horse. Eight Belles finished second. The winner was the favorite, Big Brown. Eight Belles collapsed immediately after crossing the finish line, and was euthanized shortly thereafter. Is it just me or does Hillary seem [...]

Hillary Clinton: Not ready to make coffee on Day One

April 30th, 2008 · No Comments

To be fair to Clinton, this is probably the first time she’s had to make coffee for herself in decades. So, you know, cut her some slack. How the heck is anybody supposed to do anything with no staff assistants around?

Obama camp needs to push back hard against Clinton’s popular vote myth

April 24th, 2008 · 3 Comments

A little advice to Barack Obama and his campaign: Stop talking about delegates.  The delegate race is over.  You won.  Which, to people who know what they’re talking about, means you’ve won the nomination.  But unfortunately, people who know what they’re talking about are a small minority in America.  There is, in fact, a great majority of people who [...]

Note to Democrats: End it

April 24th, 2008 · No Comments

This is not so much a note to the superdelegates, who have made clear that they absolutely will not be caught dead doing what it is they were designed to do: saving their party from internal annihilation.  This is a note to voters– the great unwashed masses who seem to be the last thing standing between us and [...]

Officially annoyed with the Democratic race

April 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

I’m feeling especially annoyed tonight, and it has nothing to do with who won or who lost.  It’s because once again in this race we get the most meaningless result possible.  As it stands right now, Clinton is set to take Pennsylvania by 10 points.  That deafening sound you hear is the whoosh of absolutely [...]

Pennsylvania prediction: Clinton will win the battle but lose the war

April 21st, 2008 · No Comments

Hillary Clinton may win Pennsylvania by double digits– as her campaign has been hoping– but as this article from CQ Politics points out, it won’t matter: And a CQ Politics analysis of the political circumstances in Pennsylvania’s congressional districts, detailed below, projects an edge to Clinton — but by just 53 district-level delegates to 50 for [...]

Hillary Clinton: If I’m president, we will attack Iran

April 21st, 2008 · 1 Comment

Doesn’t get much clearer than this: I want the Iranians to know that if I’m the president we will attack Iran.  In the next ten years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them. I’d love to see the full context of this quote, [...]
