Hillary: Don't Tread on Me

I wonder if Hillary is not playing in some sense on people's widespread love to hate her. Watching her tear into Obama, I found myself very disturbed but also thinking that not too many people on earth would want to mess with her. Not to get into tailoring gender-based epithets, I wonder if some won't feel toward Hillary something like what FDR said about the Nicaraguan dictator Somoza: he's a son of a bitch, but he's our son of a bitch....

Perhaps, too, in weighing the pros and cons of attacking Obama without any too-tender regard for scrupulous accuracy, the Clinton team decided to send a message to Republicans: don't tread on me. The old egg fry: this is your candidate on Hillary.
