Hillary: Not Dead Yet

I'll have more on this in a special North Star column to be published tomorrow, but damn, I really enjoyed that five-day period when it looked as though Obama had already won, Hillary had already lost, and it appeared as though the culture wars of the '90s were finally behind us. Apparently, not so much- I now fully expect Hillary to win the nomination, and just as the 2004 election was a referendum on Vietnam, the '08 election will be another rehashing of the Clinton impeachment. Oh joy, just what we all want.

Also, did anyone else notice that weird beeping sound that was ever-present on MSNBC's set throughout the night? I kept thinking my smoke alarm was going off.

I wouldn't single anyone out at this point as the definite winner for either Dems or GOP. I think the media learned they need to stop trying to predict things to a tea or else the voters just end up saying f&^k you. I think we can all come to a conclusion after Feb.5

I'm pretty surprised that Hillary won, not just because of the polls, but because it seems impossible for anyone to be excited about her candidacy. Hope you address that in your column!
