THE PACK....Ezra Klein watches pack journalism at work, 2008 style, and it's not pretty.  Nickel version: If some other reporter says Hillary Clinton melted down because she displayed a flash of emotion in last night's debate, then she melted down.  After all, who are you going to believe, the spin room or your own lyin' eyes?
