She's done it again. Beaten the predictions of the pundits and forged back into the race just when everyone was saying that Barack Obama's momentum was unstoppable. Winning Ohio and Texas were significant victories for Hillary Clinton, although she remains behind - by about 100 - in the delegate count. This Democratic race looks as if it will go to the convention floor, and that is good news for the later voting states. There was a tendency for the Obama-ites to suggest that Clinton should withdraw from the race if she didn't win yesterday, but that would have deprived Pennsylvania and other states of having their say. Democracy is served by this two-person race continuing, and the Democratic party continues to garner more interest than the Republicans. Pity poor John McCain, incidentally, who has to go to the White House to receive George W's blessing. He must be hoping that one gets buried amidst other news items at any rate.
Clinton's campaign has also been broadcasting a Jack Nicholson ad on Youtube (see below). Featuring brief scenes from some of his films, there are two classic 'A Few Good Men' moments, particularly the one where, as the bonkers colonel, he talks about how sexy saluting a female senior officer is and says that, because he's a colonel, he'll 'just have to keep taking a cold shower in the mornings until they elect some gal president'.... Nice one Hill! Nicholson looks old and weatherbeaten, mind you, when he appears at the end to endorse the video! Clinton also did a good stint on the Daily Show too (second video below)! My, my, if the election doesn't go her way it looks as if light entertainment could be beckoning!
