Quotes That Make the Rude Pundit Want to Head Butt James Carville:
"[T]he Hillary of May 2008 is radically different from the Hillary of two months ago, much less the one of last year, or of eight years back. And this one (at least till the nomination is settled) has some traits the right wing can love."
-From Noemie Emery's latest column in The Weekly Standard
And, a little later in the same column:
"She's running a right-wing campaign. She's running the classic Republican race against her opponent, running on toughness and use-of-force issues, the campaign that the elder George Bush ran against Michael Dukakis, that the younger George Bush waged in 2000 and then again against John Kerry, and that Ronald Reagan--'The Bear in the Forest'--ran against Jimmy Carter and Walter F. Mondale. And she's doing it with much the same symbols...And better--or worse--she is becoming a social conservative, a feminist form of George Bush."
Moral of the story: What one must lose in order to win is sometimes not worth the price of playing.
