2008 I’ll Say One Thing for Hillary Clinton…

She succeeded, with her quasi-victory rally in New York on Tuesday, in getting Tina Turner’s “Simply the Best” completely stuck in my head.
Clinton introduced her new valedictory theme song after her speech ended Tuesday night, it rattled around in my brain all day on Wednesday, and then this morning I woke up with it playing on repeat in the soundtrack of my mind. So naturally I bought it off I-Tunes and listened to it a little more in an attempt to satiate whatever unmet Tina Turner desire Clinton had managed to trigger.
Which reminds me of one of the best lines—perhaps simply the best line—that I heard on CNN during the primary night coverage on Tuesday.
ALEX CASTELLANOS, REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST: The Clintons are the Ike and Tina Turner of politics. They don’t do things nice and easy, they do them nice and rough. That’s what we saw tonight.
