Over Before it's Over
I wish I could like Hillary, but I don't. I wish I could get excited about the first woman President, but I'm not. Marrying your way to the top is no fun. It makes it a tired idea and it hasn't even happened yet! We all admire the athlete who leaves while he's ahead. Or retires gracefully when he's behind. If athletes can give up money and power, why can't people in public office ever go away on their own accord?
I was thinking about this today after reading my friend Gerry's blog about people on the rebound. How do they get over a lost love, if they ever do. Obama beat Hillary because he was fresh and new. And, he ran a superb campaign with a new approach to winning.
Hillary on the rebound? The pattern seems the same.
