It’s going to be exciting!! The last scheduled debate and Hillary’s potential Waterloo. The election season is so topsy-turvy, the fat lady is frustrated. She always gets a note or two out and then the cane (large one) emerges from the wings and yanks her behind the curtain as candidate after candidate skirts the grim reaper of political campaigns.
I don’t know if I’m ready for the all-out brawl between Obama and McCain yet, despite the beating of the war drums audible across every media medium – can we at least wait for the coin toss? At least Nader’s presence will provide some comic relief.
The Hillary/Obama contest is drawing to a natural close and the majority of Democrats seem ready to bid her adieu – though I doubt she’ll go down without a fight. Politics is a spectator sport and I’ll have a couple of bottles of Texas bock ready for the show when the clock strikes 8 (Central Time, that is). Tim Russert, with his permanently furrowed brow, and Brian Williams, with his pristine hair that even a war zone couldn’t ruffle, will try to assert their steerage of the vessel so forcefully to remove any off-script ideas from that head of Hillary Clinton’s.
But she’s a desperate woman, People! And desperate women do desperate things. Even today, her friend Chris Dodd threw his lot to Obama, which can only convince Hillary further it’s now or never. Do or die. Sink or swim. Beat her opponent about the head with her political prowess or pack up her plethora of pant suits and take a tropical vacay. I cannot predict which direction she will take – conciliatory, accusatory, defensive, offensive, aggressive, condescending, friendly, valedictory? She can do them all with ease. And I can’t wait to watch.
And if you don’t want to watch the debate, Valerie Bertinelli will be on Larry King talking about her drug use and sex with Stephen Speilberg. Wolfie says CNN will have an interview with that fruitcake radio host who embarrassed McCain when he called Obama a hack.
