Clinton dismisses weekend losses  —  WHITE MARSH, Maryland (CNN) — Hillary Clinton on Monday explained away Barack Obama's clean sweep of the weekend's caucuses and primaries as a product of a caucus system that favors “activists” and, in the case of the Louisiana primary, an energized African-American community.

Krugman: Sigh  —  Paul Krugman's column today is just bizarre: … Note to self: whenever someone writes an article that doesn't reference any specific individual, just a mindset attributed to an entire group of people, beware.  —  I have no doubt that most of the venom that Krugman sees comes from Obama supporters.
Ari Emanuel / The Huffington Post:
My Brother the Superdelegate and Why I Don't Trust Him to Pick the Next President  —  My brother Rahm Emanuel is a superdelegate.  I love my brother, and I trust my brother.  But I gave up letting my brother dictate my life since he determined whether he got the top or bottom bunk in our bedroom back in Chicago.

Why Democrats must choose Obama  —  The manager or the visionary.  Hillary Clinton's own supporters - the candidate herself, in speech after speech - have cast the fight this way.  Stirred emotions and soaring rhetoric are all very well, goes the line.  If that is what you want, vote for Barack Obama.
