Hillary's stopped congratulating Barack on his wins:
For the second election night in a row, Hillary Clinton failed to acknowledge or congratulate Barack Obama after he won the day in dominating fashion.

On Tuesday in El Paso, hours after Virginia had been called for Obama, she stuck to her “Texas campaign kickoff” message and did not stray from an energetic, Lone Star-themed stump speech. She did mention Obama by name, only to chide his health care plan.

Up next, the Pandora's Box of attacks from a Clinton cornered:
On the other hand, tonight is good for the GOP. Clinton, with her back against the wall, will make a fight of it with every hardball tactic the Clintons have.. and that's saying something.

That's the card that I think still hasn't been played in this game. On Cam's show, I just joked that Hillary will be calling Obama "the Wahhabist drug-dealer" before the race is over.

Anyone for going racial again? It's gonna get ugly:
Gov. Ed Rendell, one of Hillary Rodham Clinton's most visible supporters, said some white Pennsylvanians are likely to vote against her rival Barack Obama because he is black.

"You've got conservative whites here, and I think there are some whites who are probably not ready to vote for an African-American candidate," Rendell told the editorial board of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in remarks that appeared in Tuesday's paper.

Meanwhile, the upheaval continues in Hillaryland. Read this if you're curious about what went wrong. A curiously Bush-esque loyalty to those loyal to her regardless of their qualifications for certain positions, it would seem.
