Hillary Clinton could learn something from Scott McClellan, the former White House press secretary who bit the hand that stopped feeding him.
McClellan came to Washington as a close aide to President George W. Bush and became his chief spokesman until a new chief of staff ushered McClellan out the door, basically suggesting he was ineffective.
Republicans stepping down from office, President Bush's unpopularity, and a struggling economy are combining to make Ohio fertile ground for a Democratic Party hoping to expand its majority in Congress.
Three of the 11 Ohio congressional districts that are currently represented by Republicans -- in the Cincinnati, Columbus, and Canton areas -- are being aggressively courted by Democrats.
In all the Memorial Day excitement you might have missed it, but over the weekend the Libertarian Party nominated former Georgia congressman Bob Barr as its presidential candidate. Barr was chosen on the sixth ballot in Denver, a far livelier and more contested convention that either the Republicans or Democrats are likely to have.
When Hillary Clinton peers ahead on the campaign trail these days, she cannot help but see the tunnel at the end of the light.
If there is any other reason to be sick and tired of the presidential election campaign aside from the fact it has gone on longer than America's participation in World War I, it is the sudden emergence of the speech police ready to parse every remark for political correctness.
The idea of a dream ticket of Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton is turning into a nightmare among Democrats as Clinton continues to implode and Obama marches on towards the nomination.
At one time, many Democrats thought the idea of putting the two of them together was a great idea.
Now those same Democrats shudder at the thought.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's ill-timed and tasteless claim that she is stying in the Democratic Presidential race because frontrunner Barack Obama might get gunned down like Bobby Kennedy shows just how desperate and callous she is in her quest.
It's almost like she is wishing someone kills Obama so she is the only candidate left in the race.
Surely she doesn't wish that.
Or does she?
Hillary Clinton's vaunted "nuclear option," a last-ditch hail-mary pass that she hoped would give her the Democratic Presidential nomination over the will of voters, is turning into a dud.
As with the votes, the numbers are against her,.
But shrill Hill isn't giving up.
A victory in Oregon, yes, but a 35-point thrashing in Kentucky on Tuesday for presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama. Although both states are populated predominantly by white voters, together they prove white comes in many different shades.
After capturing the Oregon primary and compiling a delegate count that Hillary Clinton cannot overcome unless she convinces superdelegates to overturn the will of the voters, Senator Barack Obama now sounds more and more like the presumptive Democratic nominee for President.
Watch the video of his speech in Iowa.
