Did somebody resign or something?

It wasn't easy to find stories today that didn't involve some guy in the administration I've never heard of leaving office. Grover something, I think.

But I'm pleased to post a Hillary Clinton bit that's encouraging. I've been nervous about her tendency to repeat the mistakes of Gore and Kerry by hiding from liberal positions and otherwise hedging her electoral bets. But in this clip, Hillary made me proud-- confronted with a winger who's mastered the not-so-fine art of sophistry, she gives him a solid smackdown. She refers to his smarmy "universal health care is a commie plot" as a string of misrepresentations and tired right-wing propaganda. And explains why, though she doesn't have much time. Stay tuned for her closer-- it's a good one.
