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.

Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
THANK YOU, MAY I HAVE ANOTHER?  —  Let me stipulate to one thing: if this were two Republicans squabbling, I'd be laughing my head off at the moment.  And I can assure you a lot of them are.  —  The Clinton campaign has gotten so deep inside the Obama campaign's collective head it just ain't funny …

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.
