A couple of readers have asked me to comment on Hillary Clinton's announcement that she will not run in 2012, and that she will quit her current position as Secretary of State at the end of Obama's first (and probably only) term. All I can say is, I'm sorry to hear this. I don't think that she is playing any kind of 11-dimensional chess game. I do
think that she is in quiet conflict with Obama.
Okay: So who else should run against the O-man? It would be nice for an actual Democrat to be involved in the 2012 race. You know -- just to keep up appearances. I'm still thinking Gore.
