End It

Peggy Noonan is a political hack like all the rest, but she's been writing some perceptive, compelling columns about Hillary Clinton this past election cycle. This one is a doozy. Doesn't it mean something when even a Republican mouthpiece starts making sense and accusing Clinton of racially polarizing, destructive behavior? If a candidate (Clinton) literally has no way of legitimately winning, isn't her persistence the very epitome of patronizing and entitled? What, she's going to keep campaigning until she can find some way to destroy Barack Obama? And then what? Having destroying the vessel of change, the real alternative to the previous boomer generation of mechanical politics, what will she - and by extension, we - be left with? Demoralizing tatters of a future that once nearly was but suddenly seems farther away than ever before.

If Clinton doesn't end this - and she's the only one who can end this, really - she's going to find herself a pariah that makes Ralph Nader look reasonable.
