Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
The Netroots Shift  —  You can sense a change in the left-liberal blogosphere.  They have now become quite virulently anti-Clinton.  As often, Kos leads the pack.  Part of me wonders whether the Clintons understand this.  They don't care juch for the netroots, to put it mildly …
