On the Opinion Page: April 2, 2008

02Apr08

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

Maureen Dowd/The Hillary Waltz

The Short Version: Whoever wins, the battle has been good for Democrats.

In her words: “One of the most valuable lessons the gritty Hillary can teach the languid Obama — and the timid Democrats — is that the whole point of a presidential race is to win.”

Score: A (Astute)
Considering this is exactly what we’ve been saying for the past ___ weeks, we were naturally pleased to find Dowd on board. Her begrudging respect for Clinton seems more appropriate and measured than what we’ve seen from Dowd in the past, and we appreciate her Richard Strauss analogy, which adds an unexpected (and old school!) poignancy to the column.
