Hillary Clinton: Mountain Momma

Hillary Clinton just trounced Barack Obama in West Virginia. She’s giving a fired up speech from Charleston. And she’s not going anywhere.

I’m struck by the crowd in the background, all white except for an African American dude in a doo-rag. They’ve also got some kind of doofus in a windbreaker holding a bowling pin aloft.

I’ve admired Clinton’s fighting spirit for much of this campaign. On stylistic grounds, it’s almost bordering on self-parody.

As for Barack Obama, he’s certainly not finishing this race in strong fashion. I’m not sure if that will hurt his chances in November. But it can’t be good.
