It looks to me like Hillary is being drummed out of the Party for being too right-wing on Iraq and NAFTA. And this despite that fact that she is against the war and has agreed to undo NAFTA. But she hasn’t gone far enough, nobody really believes her, so she’s out.

The Democratic Party has moveoned beyond its rejection of Joe Lieberman. Now the merest hint of responsible acquaintance with reality is enough to trigger excommunication.

I really like this article: Hillary’s Close-Up

The super duper Tuesday results are in, and certain conclusions can be drawn.  African Americans are the most racist segment of society, followed by Hispanics.  Evangelical Protestants are the most religiously prejudiced.  And white women are the most sexist.  The title of least racist, least sexist, least prejudiced group in the American electorate belongs to white, non-evangelical men.
