It’s all been said – sometimes extraordinarily well, sometimes c/rudely – as in ‘Get the hook. Get her off the stage now.’
Hillary’s assassination comment on Friday really shook me. As it did Keith Olbermann and several NYT writers, and hundreds of blog commenters. Keith said Friday night in one of his Special Comments that she was not fit to be president.
The Times Editorial Board took her to task Saturday morning. There were more than 1,500 comments on that editorial before they shut it down, the vast majority majority calling for the superdelegates to step forward now and stop her, a large majority calling for the Times to rescind their endorsement of her.
I was hoping that the Times might have rescinded the endorsement, and looked for it on the editorial page this morning. No such luck – as yet.
But – every day since their endorsement of her in late winter, the pictures of Hillary and their endorsed Republican John McCain have been featured prominently on the online editorial page. Not so today. The pictures are gone.
I’m hoping / trusting that the endorsement itself goes away sometime next week – to be replaced by a ringing endorsement for Senator Obama.
