Slowly Climbing Over the Hill and Woman Bites Dog

Obama Narrows Gap in Pennsylvania

Obama is slowly climbing over the Hill in Pennsylvania according to the latest polls.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Pennsylvania shows Clinton leading Barack Obama by just five percentage points, 47% to 42%. For Clinton, that five-point edge is down from a ten-point lead a week ago, a thirteen-point lead in mid-March and a fifteen-point advantage in early March.

To add insult to injury, Obama raised $40 million in March. That is about double what the Clinton camp is expected to report. They are yet to release their figures.

So, let's look at the score card. Obama is leading in fundraising, delegates, primary popular vote and the national polls. Hillary is leading in some individual states but is all but mathematically eliminated from the race for non-Super Delegates.

And yet she continues to say she's in it to the end.

Did she make a bet with Bill or something? Has the Republican National Committee offered to help her pay off any lingering debt after the race? Why, other than hubris and blind ambition, is she still attacking Obama?

Hillary has become the guest who refused to leave the party even after everyone else has gone. Go home Sen. Clinton, please. We'd like to clean up the house and get ready for the general election.

Woman Bites Dog

Most people have heard the "Man Bites Dog" definition of news. It isn't news if a dog bites a man, but it's news if a man bites a dog. According to Wikipedia:

The phrase comes from a quote attributed to New York Sun editor John B. Bogart: "When a dog bites a man, that is not news, because it happens so often. But if a man bites a dog, that is news."
Apparently, at, equal opportunity is being practiced when it comes to this axiom.

I would bite a dog to save my beagles. I'd probably try something else first, but if I had to bite a pit bull I would. Heck, I'd bite Hillary Clinton to save my beagles.
