Don't have time to say much now - dang day job - but there was an article on Slate that I very much admired; it basically argued that the problem was that Hillary wasn't feminist enough. I took that to mean that she held strictly to a Rovian playbook - much like Kerry in 2004 or even Gore in 2000 - and that narrative really doesn't work for non-Republicans. When you get candidates like Hillary or Gore trying to act tough - throwing back shots of Crown Royal, jabbing their fingers at the other person in a debate - it just seems faintly ludicrous; it also reminds me too much of why I hate a lot of politics in the first place. Obama stands (to me, at least) in stark contrast to all of this Boomer-esque faux-macho Rovian dick comparing: he's the only one who's been able to say enough with all of this, this is ridiculous and we need to find another way forward.
