The madness of Queen Hillary

Victor Hanson shows that HRC has gone out of her mind -- and if that doesn't result in an Obama/Richardson ticket in November, it certainly WILL give the Republicans tons of cannon fodder for the general election:

. . . lately the senator has gone wild. She egotistically claimed that ipso facto her election would bring down world oil prices. Then she claimed ownership of the surge she tried to stop, by boasting that those parochial Iraqis apparently listen to her every word, as Iraqis, the U.S. military, and the enemy all must adjust their strategy to her most current position on the war.

Then she offered a history lesson of the civil-rights movement as a way to explain the difference between her, the sophisticated and savvy parliamentarian, and Sen. Obama the inspirational naif, who, apparently in the African-American rhetorical tradition, is a useful foot soldier to rile up the masses, before turning over the real legislative work to the pros.

. . . The more Hillary talks, attacks, cries, pontificates, and rewrites history, the more [Obama] appears sympathetic and above her petty fray as she punches herself out.

True. But nearly anyone is sympathetic when contrasted to her.
