Clinton vs. Obama - the fallout

Bill Scher:
    This is a long campaign. That can be a good thing.

    The extra time can give the voters the ability to fully understand the issues and make an informed decision about who can best handle the issues.

    And if the voters see a principled fight between the candidates over the issues, the party will come out stronger for it in the end.

    But if the candidates think they can triumph by making their rivals look bad over trivial matters, then the entire party will look trivial for the rest of the year.
Amen to that. Still nearly a year until the voting starts, and I already want it to just go away. Temper tantrums threaten to turn off a large segment of the voting population that, after 6 years of BushCo, is starving for honesty and substance.

In my humble opinion, this whole incident did not show Clinton in an attractive light. Her attitude conveys to me her impatience that she is not the only democrat still standing. A bit early for that.
