a basic fact of life about this election... There are ONLY TWO GUYS who can become POTUS for the next 4 years...it is the reality of our Republic. You can grouse about Romney if you must, but a vote for a third party is effectively a vote for the ObaMessiah...the election of 2000 should prove how important votes on the margin can be. We should abolish the anachronistic Electoral College, but that will have to wait...first things first..."The One" must be "One and Done"! Even Oprah feels jilted!

The Byzantine relations between President Obama and former President Bill Clinton could fill several psychology textbooks, providing juicy examples of passive aggression, older man/younger man competition, complex alliances (Hillary as secretary of state is the perfect embodiment of the maxim to "keep your friends close but your enemies closer"), and mutual interests.

That the president needs Bill Clinton now to make his case to the country must be richly satisfying to the only American whose ego can compete with Barack H. Obama's.

Let's recall that one of Obama's supposed triumphs in 2008 was defeating the vaunted Clinton machine....
