What If?

Well, one more evening watching unending commentary on should she or shouldn't she - until late when there is a concrete result.

I've been thinking about this. I'm not a Hillary fan, but she is inadvertently good for the Obama campaign. Up to now he has pretty much been preaching to the choir. Those who love him really love him. The same is true with Hillary. What his campaign is getting from hers is a chance to sharpen his skills on fending off attacks, misstatements and downright untruths. He needs the practice.

Hillary has shown she knows how to run down and dirty. So has McCain. Pitted against one another should be something to behold.

If it's Obama, he'd better have those skills sharpened. Mr. McCain may speak softly but he, like Hillary, has shown that sarcasm and mockery can be a mighty effective weapon.
