Obama has done what republicans could not. He has single-handedly put an end to the Clinton nightmare. Let's face it, it's over for Hillary. Obama knows it, he laughs off her increasingly idiotic attacks. The media know it, they scoff at her and Bill and demand to know when she will quit the race. Hillary knows it, you can see it on her face. It's a combination of resignation and raw anger. As scary as the prospect of an Obama presidency is, at least we have an end to the Clintons with their endless scandals, their lies, their attacks and their overriding narcissism. Republicans can claim zero credit. They couldn't defeat Bill, either in an election or in the DC power game. He whipped them like rented mules. They couldn't defeat Hillary either. She ran for Senate in NY about 36 hours after moving there and won easily. She led them around by the nose in the Senate, and she probably would have defeated McCain. Her only remaining chances depend on two unlikely scenarios. One, she wins Texas and Ohio and stays close enough to Obama to be able to coerce super delegates to support her. Result? Alienated blacks and Obama-infatuated young voters and a likely republican victory. Or some Obama scandal surfaces. There are some faint wisps of smoke there, but if the Clinton opp research team hasn't fanned it into a blaze by now, it's likely not going to happen. The real loser in this race has been Bill, not Hillary. He has gone in the space of three months from revered party figure to the crazy uncle you keep in the attic and away from company. As the Clinton power fades, the media and party figures become bolder in standing up to him or looking to get some payback from past indignities. If there was ever an example of this, it is Bill Richardson's refusal to endorse Hillary despite pleas from Bill. Apparently bill asked him, "Weren't two cabinet positions enough?" I guess not. Politics is a game of what can you do for me tomorrow. For the Clintons, the answer is not much.
