I've ranted here from time to time about my dislike/trust of Hillary Rodham Clinton. While at the time of this writing (Tuesday afternoon) the results of the New Hampshire primary were not known, it sure looked like the Barack Obama tide was going to swamp her again. She's looking like the Big 10 to his SEC. While I'm glad that it looks more and more each day like she will not be the Democratic nominee for president, I must confess a little sympathy for her. It must be hell having your life's dream shattered and the entire country watching it transpire, with probably at least half of them reveling in it.
