      I do see the comparison to Booby Kennedy now that you describe it. Although in 68, I was angry at Bobby was cynically jumping into the race only after Eugene McCarthy demonstrated LBJ's weakness, I later realized that only Bobby had a chance of defeating Nixon. I just wish he had been cynical and distrustful enough to have had a real bodyguard around him that terrible night in LA.
      The people who keep complaining about Hillary don't seem to realize just how tough and yes, ruthless, a president has to be in order to be effective. I commented on this on another diary earlier in reference to Hillar's vote to authorize the war.
