Pennsylvania primary results


FOR-THURS-COLOR.gif

This race is driving the Democratic Party bigwigs bonkers. The only Democrat who might have had the clout to step in and stop the carnage happens to be married to one of the candidates, and his stature is diminishing by the day, anyway.

Behind it all runs a leitmotif of Machiavellian psychobabble:

1: "She knows she'll lose, and she wants to make sure to destroy Obama on the way out. That way, McCain wins the general, and she comes back in four years as St. Hillary, the patron saint of I Told You So."

2: "Spite. If she's going to lose, she wants to take him and the party down with her as punishment for not picking her in the first place. How dare the vermin stand in her way?"

3: "She'll do anything to win, and worry about dealing with the hurt feelings later. The Clintons defined winning dirty. Her base, the shoulder-pad feminists of a certain age, see this as simply being tough in a tough world."

4: "The longer she manages to stay in, the higher the price she can exact for agreeing to get out. Governor of New York? Senate Majority Leader? Chief Justice Clinton?"

I believe all of it.

Chan, you are going to get Lois_lane upset be careful.


All the women in the world are watching how America is treating the first woman to run for President.
So far it hasn't been pretty.Hillary can never and should never quit. The women are behind her and the status of women worldwide would suffer if she didn't fight on. Bravo Hillary! Doesn't sound Machiavellian sounds more Chauvinistic. P.S. I am a man.


Great cartoon; mediocre commentary.


...and the longer this goes on, the longer the Dems dominate the media. After the last primary, all join hands, sing a round of Kum Ba Ya, and then try to get all the folk who came out for the primaries to vote in November... and leave McCain on the couch.


PP,

Don’t get your point on this one. All around the world women have held PM and Presidential office. Hilliary is not the first woman to hold this type of office if she wins the election come November, why would all women hold her as the standard of how we treat woman. Also, Hillary is not the first dem. woman to run for president, she just happens to be rich and white which is why she has made it this far.

Me too! Hillary ranks right up there with Stalin and his ilk. THAT is why she lost: We do not want a Fascist President, especially not one in an orange pantsuit.
