Hillary’s victory speech was pretty good, at least by her standards. She is no Obama, but certainly made it seem as though she were in for the long haul. Frank Luntz, by the way, agreed, calling it “fantastic, absolutely the best speech I’ve heard her give.”
I cannot recall her giving a better one, but that doesn’t make it “fantastic.” But here is the key point: Hillary Clinton will not quit at anything she truly dedicates herself to do. In that regard, she reminds me of none other than George W. Bush. . . . I noted, by the way, that New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine was in the background behind Hillary, clapping away for the cameras to record. He has apparently recovered from his bout of superdelegate vapors.
Watch those weathervanes over the next few days.
UPDATE: Now Obama’s on, and he’s declaring victory because, well, he just is. Also, Bush is evil. TalkLeft has more.
MORE: Jennifer Rubin thinks Obama sounds bitter. More here.
STILL MORE: Marc Ambinder: Clinton Internet Fundraising: 100K in 20 minutes?
FINALLY: A foolproof prediction: Six more weeks of pandering!
