I've joked about Hillary Clinton's singleminded determination to get the Democratic nomination to my friends. Even I have to admit, though, that continuing the quixotic months-long campaign, in the face of scathing media coverage and often bitter opponents in her own party, have made me respect ole Hill, at least a little bit (never thought I'd type that).
Case in point - Hillary's relentless struggle to get the delegates from the Florida and Michigan primaries seated. Apparently, the party bigwigs are meeting this weekend to sort it all out, and you know the Clinton camp will do their damnedest to get those votes counted. It's questionable backroom dealing at best - both Obama and Clinton signed pledges that agreed the FL and MI primaries would be invalid if they jumped the gun - but it's pretty much all she has left.
Now if only somebody would apply the time, energy, and money expended on these stupid elections to problems that are in need of fixing...
