A little girl-band anthem for our gal Hill while she's teetering on the brink of failure, likely about to topple into the Gorge of Eternal Irrelevance.

Optimistic conservatives and Hillary supporters alike, though, can take heart in the reasoning that Tuesday is Obama's third try for a knock-out, and if he can't deliver, folks may have doubts about his ability to close. Maybe nice guys do finish last, after all.

Meanwhile, Obama praised one of his newest disciples, Jay Rockefeller, for having the incredible foresight to vote against Iraq War authorization. Which, would be a decent talking point, if you know, Jay Rockefeller hadn't voted for the Iraq War authorization.

Is Charlie Crist on Team Hillary, now? Between him and Bill Cunningham and Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter, her endorsement list is more conservative than McCain's.

Anyone else miss Rudy? I do. Good to see him again.

Hey, just imagine how much influence SNL would have had on the race if there had been no writers' strike. God bless those unions, huh?

Hillary's getting mostly a bad rap for this "as far as I know" comment, as it comes on the heels of a long denial of the Obama Muslim rumors, but she could have been more robust in her denunciation of the rumor-mongers. Denounce and reject, Hillary. Denounce and reject.

McCain barely warrants a mention today in the press, but I'll try to come up with a story somewhere, just to see what he's up to.

Oh, and there's war brewing in Gaza and in South America, but such is the nature of an election year that you'll hear even less about that today than you will about McCain.
