Email from my friend Jerry Baker:
I don’t forward Maureen Dowd’s columns very often however, in my humble opinion, she’s capturing the mood of many Democrats with her column below.
Sorry to all of you Hillary supporters, but I’m growing very angry at her tactics, especially she and her husband’s continued praise of John McCain. What? So if Hillary doesn’t get the nomination (and she can’t without a wholesale sellout by the Super Delegates) then we should vote for McCain?? Then James Carville says Bill Richardson is a traitor for endorsing Obama?? What?? Is this the same Carville who’s married to Mary Matlin, special advisor to every war mongering Republican in Washington (including Cheney)?
My opinion only…we should be thanking Richardson for having the courage to go on TV and say what many of us are already thinking: Quit now Hillary and let Obama take on McCain. He can and he will win. You can’t.

It is a tribute to Hillary Clinton that even though, rationally, political soothsayers think she can no longer win, irrationally, they wonder how she will pull it off. It’s impossible to imagine The Terminator, as a former aide calls her, giving up. Unless every circuit is out, she’ll regenerate enough to claw her way out of the grave, crawl through the Rezko Memorial Lawn and up Obama’s wall, hurl her torso into the house and brutally haunt his dreams.
“It’s like one of those movies where you think you know the end, but then you watch with your fingers over your eyes,” said one leading Democrat.
