    I wish I was not so jaded or cynical but I don't see Hillary 'quitting' yet. She is not conceding her candidacy; she is merely suspending it. I think secretly she hopes there's another big shoe to drop out there somewhere that would inspire the party to tell Obama he is unelectable and to quit and she could then be coronated with command of the popular vote.

    It was Hillary's turn. She put up with all the crap she had to put up with to stand by her man for his time in the sun, and now she had earned her time in the sun. At one time she was the presumed heir apparent, and now it is being taken away by an upstart junior senator with virtually no qualifications purely because he is good looking and preaches a good speech. And she knows she is getting long in the tooth and this election was her best shot--she doesn't want to have to wait eight more years to try again.

    She didn't help Gore when he ran, and she didn't help Kerry when he ran. She can't be a good Democrat and run against the incumbant. So don't be surprised if her support for Obama is more for show than practical, more strategy than reality.

    Technically she had no intention of quitting... her closest and most powerful supporters gave her a stern call yesterday asking her just WTF she was doing... even charlie rangel was left scratching his head... still didnt mess up his hair though mind you....

    Whine whine whine, what about MYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYyyyyyyyyyyyy turn???

    This job is not about taking turns!


    At the beginning I said it would follow the same pattern as voting rights, black men first, women later.....

    And Hillary has totally followed in the footsteps of the suffragettes, racist comments included......

    History repeats.

    Dynasty, Clinton style, I don't think so. I would have had a lot more respect if she had sidelined Bill at the start of the campaign. Major qualification for this job is that she had to be man enough to do the job on her own, and never give the impression he would pull strings from the sidelines. He would just never shut up, was all about grabbing the spotlight, and for me at least, it was enough to decide she really wasn't tough enough.

    On the other hand, I have no idea who Lady Thatcher's nor Golda Meir's husbands were/are. It never entered into anything at all. Hillary is still overshadowed.

    I swear to God, the next time someone baslessly claims Clinton made racist remarks, I'm voting for McCain.

    Except you, Countess, because I know you're not really an Obama supporter.
