And Then There Were Two

(5:43 EST –Completely re-written for coherence)


Given the MSM’s quadrennial confiscation of America’s electoral process, The BAG offers you the first axiomatic image of Campaign ’08.  The photo, accompanying Sunday’s NYT  snap-shot of Clinton’s entrance, and effect, on the Democratic race, has everything pretty much figured out.

The message?  First, that Richardson, Edwards, Dodd, Kucinich, Vilsack, Biden, Clark, Kerry, Sharpton and Gore needn’t bother.  Second, that in the only fight that really matters (did I mention the article title? — Clinton Enters ’08 Field, Fueling Race for Money), Hillary (in the silver and pearls) nails down the bling-bling.

… So, any predictions on 2012?
