February 11, 2008


Hillary Clinton’s fabled firewall is crumbling. I just have a feeling. If there’s a trend in Maryland on the eve of the primary election, it’s the disappearance of the wall.

Obama and Clinton: The Gentleman And The Lady

February 1, 2008

The senator from Illinois won big in South Carolina. Barack Obama, 55 percent; Hillary Clinton, 27 percent; John Edwards, 18 percent.
