Not so long ago, I wrote "Clinton loses... The end...", which explained the many reasons why perseverating on any potential Hillary Clinton victory strategy was a complete waste of energy. The title said it all. She's toast. Obama is the nominee.
The gargantuan outpouring of stupidity involving Jeremiah Wright didn't change the Clinton campaign's terminal prognosis. The Obama "race speech" didn't resurrect her crazed quest for POTUS.
Scoreboard. Obama's got this one clinched. John vs. Barack in the fall. My earlier assessment stands.
I should be happy. After all, I'm backing Obama. Plus, Hillary Clinton causes soul cancer, which is a very bad thing. I'm not happy, though. I'm actually feeling a little queasy.
My discomfort stems from the sudden realization that Dick Morris agrees with me. He also recognizes the inevitability of an Obama nomination. It isn't surprising that Morris would come out against Hillary (he has developed a hatred of her that far exceeds my own).
It is odd, however, to find myseef in agreement with Dick Morris. This is not a comfortable place. I don't like it here.
Fortunately, Morris is only half-right. He's fairly on the mark when it comes to the "Hillary can't win" thing, but his analysis of Obama's speech yesterday is the kind of silliness to which we're all a little more accustomed. It isn't as feeble as Shelby Steele's goofy perspective on the whole thing (nicely skewered here), but it's weak.
That makes me feel a little better.
