Yesterday, as New Hampshirites were voting and we all expected an Obama victory of blowout proportions, I wrote, “As someone who was solidly in the Obama camp as recently as Friday, I can hardly greet [an Obama victory] as bad news. Yet I can’t help wishing it were closer. After decades of civic service making things better, Hillary doesn’t deserve humiliation.”
Today, analyzing the reasons for Hillary’s surprising vote total, Emily Bazelon writes in Slate:
…Even if we’re not certain we ultimately want her to win, we sure don’t want her embarrassed by a run of heavy early losses.
I have my finger on the pulse of the electorate!
