An Ugly Thought Strikes the Left

It occurs to Jonathan Chait that, perhaps, conservatives were right all along about the essential nature of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

That admission has been elicited because people all across the political spectrum have been disgusted by the obvious and ruthless attacks on Barack Obama coming from the Clinton camp.

But, you know, the distortions of Obama's record are really nothing worse than things Clintons have said about their other opponents -- Democrat and Republican. Here's an example of Clintonian attacks against Paul Tsongas in the 1992 election.

If the presence of a likable, charismatic, electable young African American in this year's primaries has done nothing else, at least perhaps it's had the salutary effect of demonstrating to liberals some of the Clintonian qualities that have driven the conservatives crazy over the years.

Ted Kennedy endorses Barak Obama!

So much for the "Coronation Ceremony" for Mrs. Clinton.
