Why won’t she just go away? From The New York Times
Mrs. Clinton’s advisers said they had spent recent days making the case to wavering superdelegates that Mr. Obama’s association with Mr. Wright would doom their party in the general election.
Meanwhile, her desperate supporters are trying to finance a revote in Michigan.
It’s like we’ve been saying all along, her candidacy would be doomed to fail. From the Boston Globe
For a party that loves to hate the Clintons, Republican voters have cast an awful lot of ballots lately for Senator Hillary Clinton: About 100,000 GOP loyalists voted for her in Ohio, 119,000 in Texas, and about 38,000 in Mississippi, exit polls show…
Spurred by conservative talk radio, GOP voters who say they would never back Clinton in a general election are voting for her now for strategic reasons: Some want to prolong her bitter nomination battle with Barack Obama, others believe she would be easier to beat than Obama in the fall, or they simply want to register objections to Obama.
“It’s as simple as, I don’t think McCain can beat Obama if Obama is the Democratic choice,” said Kyle Britt, 49, a Republican-leaning independent from Huntsville, Texas, who voted for Clinton in the March 4 primary. “I do believe Hillary can mobilize enough [anti-Clinton] people to keep her out of office.”

There’s a great new Italian restaurant on Grand Street, called Fiore. We just got around to posting a menu this weekend. Check it out while the prices remain reasonable since this place is already becoming a local favorite. More information here.
Also, now you can search our restaurant section to check out what’s new and what’s recommended. We’re overdue to check out Air Pizza, if not for the logo alone.
