This would have been a GREAT move by Hillary:
She could have waged a grassroots, small-donor, Internet campaign of change based on being the first woman running for president with a serious chance of victory. The charisma could have been hers, the excitement hers and the novelty hers.

Whoa - Lindsay Graham stepping up to the plate!
He shouldn't have let it drop there, he should have provided the Geneva Convention definitions of torture and then asked if Hartmann felt waterboarding passed that and then re-applied the Iran question - but still good spine.

This video is just stupefying, for several reasons...

Great read and alternate perspective.

So Obama's victory over Clinton in rural Nevada says something important about his ability as the apostle of national reconciliation. To win against Clinton in Elko County (black population: 0.8%), he had to convert not only white Democrats, but a large number of independents and people who had voted Republican until caucus day; a feat he pulled off with dazzling facility. Any Democrat nominee who can do that, deep in Republican country, is likely to gain the presidency; and Obama has proved that he can. Clinton, laden with the moral, cultural and political baggage of the 1990s, is likely to fare as badly in Elko County as Kerry did in 2004, when he collected just 20% of the vote

Check out this panoramic Obama attendance picture from yesterday - 14,000 people, in a location where a small percentage are African-American, showing up... good news for curing voter apathy at least.
His opening ring-the-bell remarks: ""They told me there aren't any Democrats in Idaho!"
