Hillary’s campaign to make me actively dislike her has succeeded. Playing on people’s fears? Check. Having surrogates noodle racial issues while retaining some semblance of deniability? Check. Brazenly asserting a reality (that she is still in the race by an reasonable measure) that is flagrantly at odds with real reality? Check.
#1 and #3 cut deep because they are so, so Bush-Administration-esque. I’m not holding out hope that an Obama presidency would usher in any more change than the usual, incremental kind, but at the very least I’d like a chance for my persistent state of outrage fatigue to have time to fade. With Clinton, at this point, I’m not so sure it would.
