On the Opinion Page: March 26, 2008


In which The Gay Recluse scores selected opinion pieces in The Times.

Maureen Dowd/Hillary or Nobody

The Short Version: Hillary probably doesn’t want to be vice-president.

In her words: “It’s hard to imagine that after spending her whole life playing second-fiddle to a superstar pol, Hillary wants to do it again. She’s been vice president.”

Score: B (Boring for the most part)
Add Dowd to the chorus of voices who claim that Hillary (and Bill) Clinton would rather destroy the Democratic party (and see McCain for four years) than see Obama get the nomination. Although this column is not unamusing at times — e.g., the way Dowd now calls Clinton “The Terminator” — we still don’t buy the premise that Clinton needs to do anything but go down fighting, or that doing so will ultimately wound Obama in the general election. If Obama can beat Clinton, McCain should be a piece of cake.
