Rich – Great post on Hillary. I’d add one thing. Isn’t it amazingly ironic that Hillary is getting into trouble at precisely the moment the cost of her position on the war is starting to deflate? The surge is working, the polls show that Americans are moving away from the war as a primary concern and toward the economy. Objectively, you’d think this would be music to her ears and bad news for Obama. And yet, it seems to have coincided with her flop-sweating and Obama’s rise. I can think of some entirely theoretical reasons for how the two things are connected. But — for now — I’d guess the most likely explanation is that it’s simply a coincidence.
