Hillary Clinton, Mastermind Of Gender Politics

Wow! What a night--we all got it wrong. Clinton supporters have been
bemoaning their candidate as a victim of gender politics; turns out
she's a mastermind of gender politics. Not only did she find her voice
(or at least the heartstrings of women who don't like to see thugs like
Rick Lazio and, er, John Edwards treat a lady mean) but she replaced
the wax museum of former Clinton officials at her last speech with what
looked like the overflow crowd of a Hannah Montana concert. I agree
with Frank that her comeback is good for the process--who wants it to
end so soon? It's also good for toughening up Obama before he's
prematurely canonized as Martin Luther Kennedy. At this point, only one
thing is clear: The GOP needs to find someone, anyone, who can give a
speech.
