An excellent article from David Brooks on the arrogance and folly of Clinton's campaign.   Brooks doesn't make any points you haven't thought of before, but the tenor and agility of his prose deserves respect.  And then, the subject itself....

I'm 90% likely to support McCain in the general election.  As such, it's probably in my interest to see Obama and Clinton continue to throw mud at each other for the next few months.  (Actually, most of the mud-throwing is one-way.)    But at this point, I'm ready for it to end.  Hilary's campaign has been depressing, dispiriting, and, at time, disgraceful.  I don't want to see her on TV anymore.  I don't want to read about her in the newspaper.  I want her gone from the public stage--forever.  

While I'm filling out a wish list, I also want a Playstation3.  And some of those Bose noise-cancelling headphones.  And 10,000$ in hundreds.  And....

You do know that McCain is, at present, marginally *older* than Reagan was when he was at this point in his first campaign? And that it seems rather likely that Reagan's first glimmers of Alzheimer's showed up while he was still in office....?

I'm just putting it out there.

Just because you are old does not mean you get Alzeimer's. What happened to Reagan is irrelevant to McCain. That being said, McCain sure as hell better pick a competent VP candidate. I am most likely a McCain voter myself, but his VP pick will be a big factor in my final decision.
