When the Mainstream Media has decided that the race is going to be between Clinton and Giuliani, should we even bother with the formality of primaries?
Edwards and Obama could strip naked and sing a duet and would only get a one sentence mention in an article on how mean the menfolk were being to poor Hils. Thompson could fill a stadium with thousands of chanting, underwear-flinging fans and Ron Paul could raise a bazillion dollars, and both events would be one paragraph footnotes in a TIME magazine whose cover story showed a pensive Rudy and asked "Is America's Mayor Ready To Be America's President?"
Edited to Add: "You can't spell Clinton without CNN." *Snerk!* Now that's funny.
