'The Strained Scurrying of the Also-Ran'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

If that sound isn't the fat lady clearing her throat, it might be the MSM humming Hillary's dirge. Consider, for example, ABC national political correspondent Jake Tapper's Good Morning America segment today on the differences in tone between the Obama and Clinton campaigns. After playing footage of an angry Hillary waving allegedly misleading Obama campaign literature and then of a relaxed Obama laughing it off, Tapper had this to say.

JAKE TAPPER: There's a difference between a winner's confident stride and the strained scurrying of the also-ran.

Hmmm...let's not count her out yet. There have been comparisons of her to the Glenn Close character in "Fatal Attraction".

Not to mention, we are now seeing stirrings of "Obamamania" fatigue. When you read items about his followers being swept up into a cult-like adoration that gets parodied on SNL, it does make one wonder.

Conspiracy theorist that I am - could this be designed by the DBM for The Queen to make a stunning comeback? We all know how they love nothing better than to build up a candidate, then tear him/her down. There's still a week and a half to the March 4 primaries, and we're now seeing reports about Obama being friendly with 60's radical Bernardine Dohrn and her husband. If that story grows legs, it could be the beginning of the end of Obama.

Hillary can still win the nomination if she will just try some of these tactics.........

Fall and twist her ankle while leaving the stage at an aspirin factory in Mingo Junction Ohio........

Reveal (while sobbing) letters proving Bill is still meeting Monica in Wayward Texas...........

Introduce the child she and Bill were just maybe going to adopt.....someday.....,make that child a black hispanic asian, or Dennis Kuchinich.

Get a new hairstyle, something nappy and neat.

Finally look a little sexier, when you walk BOUNCE,dont waddle, get five inch heels, show plenty of fake cleavage,and dont cackle, stretch your mouth or speak, just purrrrr and every one will believe your lies.
