Under the most arbitrary calculations of the raw national vote Clinton taken the lead. Obama still leads if you throw out the Michigan vote, where he was not on the ballot, but Hillary did win 55% of the vote there so even that exclusion is not a true picture. If Hillary can make inroads and convincingly win the popular vote count, as opposed to the delegate count, she may have the winning strategy for a superdelegate victory.
The concern trolls circling around Bill Clinton's campaigning is just too much to bear. The Dallas Morning News wrote yesterday that "there's something disconcerting, even diminishing, about watching a former president get down and dirty on the campaign trail." I didn't know Presidential Images, even his, were so damn valuable, not even to be expended for his Wife or for the future of the Country.
I'm hopefully voting for Clark, but in the interest of edifying the umpteen folks who are screeching for Hillary's attention, I'm jotting down a few words...
The goal now is to ensure a constitution that can be easily amended later so Iraq can grow into a democracy, U.S. officials say.
Ah yes... Juan Cole discusses this, citing such a process to be similar to the United States' conundrum in breeding its own Civil War when writing its Constitution.
Cole is right of course, but I think it's significant that reality is at long last being faced. Iraq never had a chance at Democracy and it was foolish to think otherwise. At least this news signals that perhaps the fools have tired of playing in their own excrement.
If the bar for success has become an Islamic State, Bush can finally "declare victory" and order our boys home.
