Behold: again I return.

Everything seems to be more-or-less in order at the Ranch of the Damned. Mom seems to be doing very well, though her health remains a concern.

As for the rest of the world: I've been virtually news-less for almost two weeks, and it was GREAT.

The one thing that kept smacking me in the face when I did see the news on this trip, however, was this: it's starting to get a little hard for me to see myself voting for HRC. Man, what the hell is wrong with the Clintons? They seem to be angrier at Obama than they are at Bush. And all the little dirty digs and exaggerations (kindergarten and the presidency, drugs, messy desk)! I mean, you'd think they had Dick Morris back on their team.

I mean, seriously. Along comes this guy who sincerely says that he wants to reform American politics to make it less vicious--and who might actually be able to do it--and what's the Clinton's response? Viciously attack him at every opportunity. If they'd have turned half this ire against the Bush-DeLay-Limbaugh-et. al. Axis of Evil they might have been able to do some actual good. One can reasonably think that Clinton would make a better president than Obama, or even that Obama just isn't ready for the job...but the viciousness of the Clinton camp's attacks are just bullshit--and often so ridiculously petty that I'd find them angrifying even if directed at someone genuinely loathsome. Say, Giuliani... There are reasonable points to be made against Obama, but the low blows are just making me (and others, I expect) more sympathetic to him.

So listen, Clinton supporters: get your gal to straighten up, or she's going to lose a hell of a lot of us. I'm serious.

It made 55% of SC like him so I can't argue with you there. That said, He needs to relax a bit, you can tell Bill has gotten under his skin and is making him a little nuts. He needs to take more of the Edwards approach and act like an adult. At the moment he has my vote but if he keeps exchanging attacks with Hiltary err Hillary then I might have to think about voting for Edwards assuming he is still in the race by the time the primaries get to PA. Sadly I think Obama might be able to reverse a lot of our negative image in world politics, but if he keeps fighting with Hillary then Edwards will continue to look like the only adult in the Democratic race.
