2008 Now Everyone’s Saying It

The closing scene—and Hillary Clinton’s last words—at the crucial debate Thursday night in Texas set pundits to opine that, just perhaps, Clinton is coming to terms with the fact that she’s not going to win the Democratic nomination…
Last night’s debate ended with a riveting moment that left many Caucus Readers suspecting that Senator Hillary Clinton was conceding the race.
It was an unexpectedly gracious moment in a debate that was supposed to be a game changer for Clinton before the crucial Texas and Ohio primaries March 4. After losing 11 straight contests to Obama in a race now clearly breaking his way, the former first lady chose the high road and even delivered what sounded to many like the dress rehearsal for a campaign valedictory address.
I’m glad that she’s taking the high road; if the race is over, at least she’s not taking Mark Penn’s scorched-earth policy.
