Go Already!  —  Hillary Clinton, fratricidal maniac.  —  The morning after Tuesday's primaries, Hillary Clinton's campaign released a memo titled “The Path to the Presidency.”  I eagerly dug into the paper, figuring it would explain how Clinton would obtain the Democratic nomination despite an enormous deficit in delegates.
Greg Sargent / TPM Election Central:
Power Resigns Over Hillary-Is-Monster Comment  —  Here's her statement, just sent out by the campaign: … In an interview with The Scotsman, Power called Hillary a “monster” and said other less-than-flattering things about her.  Despite her prompt apology yesterday, the Hillary camp demanded her resignation this morning.

Playing by Clinton Rules  —  Barack Obama had a theory.  It was that the voters are tired of the partisan paralysis of the past 20 years.  The theory was that if Obama could inspire a grass-roots movement with a new kind of leadership, he could ride it to the White House and end gridlock in Washington.
