I’m just getting home from what I think qualifies as my first-ever event on the Washington cocktail party circuit (in a neighborhood so fancy I hadn’t realized it existed) and see Hillary Clinton’s on TV giving her victory speech from Kentucky. Somehow, I don’t see this speech turning things around and securing her the nomination. I get the sense watching her talk that she realizes this, though. A certain tension of the feisty underdog is gone — she’s smiling and having fun, talking about the issues that matter to her.
UPDATE: Okay, now she’s shifted back into campaign flim-flam. Apparently, Kentucky is the only state that counts and she’s talking tough about running all the way to the convention. I’m back to being disgusted by her, her staff, and her campaign and regret having said anything mildly positive above.
