Thursday, June 05, 2008None of whom read my blog, I'm sure, but still: Clinton is dropping out this weekend. She originally planned to concede on Friday, but apparently chose not to because that's the anniversary of Bobby Kennedy's death (good move on her part). So instead she's going to endorse Obama on Saturday.
I know a lot of people out there were convinced that Clinton was going to blow up the party, that she was going to drag this out to the convention in an effort to damage Obama so much that he would lose, and she could run again in 2012. But guess what? It's not going to happen. Hillary Clinton is NOT a monster. The "devil theory" of the Clintons is wrong. She's just a politician who came very, very close to winning the nomination and hung on until she was out of chances. Yes, she ran a tough campaign, but that's what you have to do when you're behind. Politics ain't beanbag.
I think all the people who have been asserting that Hillary Clinton is Satan need to chill out, and they probably owe Clinton and her supporters an apology - or at least a break. Let's let the campaign cool off for a few weeks so everybody can get over all the trauma, and then let's all be friends again.
This experience just underscores to me that no fights are more vicious and painful than ones that happen in the family.
