Post-Primary Flashback

posted by on August 20 at 10:10 AM

Third in a series.

A lot has been written about this election, in our pages and on our blog, since Obama (finally) wrapped up the nomination. While we hurtle toward the convention, we’re recapping what’s been said since the last moment when everyone was paying attention.

Here is Erica C. Barnett writing in the May 7 Stranger on why it was time for Hillary Clinton to give up. (Clinton didn’t for another month.)


It’s time for Hillary to concede. I’m the biggest—sometimes, it feels like, the only—Hillary supporter at this paper. I don’t agree that she’s guilty of “dividing the party,” or that this protracted Democratic nomination battle turned the country against the Democrats. My desire for her to concede is both political and personal. First, there’s now no scenario in which Hillary can overtake Barack Obama and win the nomination. And second, I don’t want to see her embarrass herself and diminish her legacy as a First Lady and a senator.

These are very helpful. Please keep posting them. Also, some more Chris Crocker. And something, anything, about Amanda Knox - I just want to know she's safe and still in your thoughts.

Is it just coincidental that 'Bitches' appears right below this entry?

Aren't you glad Hils did all the nastygrams during the Caucus/Primary?

Those could never come back to haunt us ...

Oh. Wait.

They did.
