Hillary is a Formidable Foe, but so is Maureen Dowd

I love Maureen Dowd. Here's a little clip of hers from today's Times. It's nice to see the media giving Hillary some credit and talking about her toughness as a good thing. It's also nice not to keep hearing doom and gloom about how this race is going to destroy the democratic party. I totally agree with her here, Hillary is priming Obama to handle tough battles in the future....since in the political realm anyway, he's never had to battle like this before.

That's not to say that I believe Hillary's only valuable role of note in this nomination process is as mentor/mommy to her younger (naive? inexperienced? pollyanna?) opponent. Not at all.
clipped from
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.
Hillary’s work is done only when she is done, because the best way for Obama to prove he’s ready to stare down Ahmadinejad is by putting away someone even tougher.

Hey thanks for the great blog, I love this stuff. I don’t usually read much into politics but with the election coming up (not to mention the dem primaries) and everyone going green these days I thought I would leave a comment.

I am trying to find more about the government and if they are going to ratify the Kyoto Protocol any time soon. Has anyone seen this pole on ? It said 75% of people think the government should ratify the Kyoto Protocol on Earth Day (when I took it). I also saw something on Wikipedia but it wasn’t up to date. Any other thoughts on where the government is going with this?

I am looking for more info on what candidates’ opinions are and how are we are going to get closer to solutions. Drop a link if you see anything worth my time.
