Please stop talking, Bill
writers' strike be damned! bring the drama!
i thought this one was bad...
then today i saw this clip of President Clinton in New Hampshire.
we'll see how the New Hampshire primaries go tonight. another Obama victory will be a powerful signal that America might rather go with a "fairy tale" as President Clinton references, than another dynasty.
so, what is your thinking? was Hillary the puppeteer of a well-timed emotional cloud break, or did we see a side of her she might have been mistakenly covering all this time? was this her Howard Dean moment?
speaking of Dean, whom i do respect and had an enjoyable conversation with on an airplane once, i think i've finally realized the cause of his unfortunate audible (ha ha...get it?). i'm spending the day home sick, finally bowing to a cough and cold that i've been wrastling with since Christmas, and i realize, in my weakened vocal state, that if someone gave me a microphone and a little dose of energy, that's the exact sound I'd make.
so, "ryaaaahhhh" New Hampshire. "ryaeeeeaaahhhhhrrr" democracy. we'll see what happens this evening.
my friend sara sent me this New York Times opinion column by Gloria Steinem. it's pretty thought-provoking. regardless of what tonight's and this election's outcomes are, we are moving forward as a country, a step long overdue but profound in its impact.
i'm off to the doctor.
