Victimhood for Victory
I am from the South. Yet, I have to say that the most racist people I've known were from Ohio. Billary's painting of Obama as the "black candidate" way back in South Carolina finally worked in Ohio. So, apparently, did the interviews in which Rodham unbelievably claimed that a white woman from a well-healed background with a former President as husband faces gender based hurdles that are higher than those faced by a black man with a strange name with the middle name of Hussein. As untrue as that victimhood position is, this obviously called out the sisterhood. The endless coverage of Hillary Rodham over the past couple of weeks helped as well.
Yet, as Hillary has apparently won Rhode Island and Ohio, and as I write Texas is still up in the air, while Obama won Vermont in a landslide, the difference in the character of these two people can not be more starkly visible than when watching the obligatory speeches of each candidate at the end of the evening. In keeping with the speeches after her past 11 state streak of defeats, Hillary did not congratulate Obama even for winning tiny Vermont. Or for running good a race. Her speech, as usual, was all about her narcissistic self and reeked of entitlement.
Yet, in his speech, Obama congratulated Clinton for her wins, and kept the focus not on himself but on the hopes of those voting for him. What an amazingly stark contrast of personalities. You know who I want answering the phone at 3 AM in the morning? The President that is not going to think about what his response will mean in the next round of polling numbers. That could be Obama. It might be McCain. But it surely is not Hillary Rodham.
Meanwhile, the gender feminist victimhood strategy that we have suffered through for close to two decades must finally be wearing thin, even as it blows a few last gusts of wind in the sail of Rodham's campaign. After murdering a couple and kidnapping their daughter, I wonder what Spc. Ivette Gonzalez Davil’s victimhood play will be.
