The NYT has endorsed
Hillary, saying she's 'more qualified' than Obama. ... OK, imagine this scenario: Laura Bush takes her years of 'experience' serving as first lady of Texas and the nation, leverages it to get elected senator in Texas, and then runs for president citing her 'experience' -- while her former-governor/president husband comes out of semi-retirement to the horror of the nation to exclaim 'we' governed together. ... I have a feeling the NYT and Gloria Steinem wouldn't buy into their 'more qualified' claims. ... P.S.
- I was hoping Kevin's subconscious-torpedo theory
would come true. But I fear Bill's attacks are really hurting Obama. ...Update
-- From Reader No. 1:
Why no one would buy your Laura Bush scenario:
1. The current First Lady did not lead a health-care reform task force whose results helped drive health care reform out of the public domain for at least a decade.
2. It's a manifestation of the phenomenon Michael Barone describes here. The Permanent Campaign lives!
