It wasn't supposed to be this way: Hillary Clinton, the Dowager Empress of Chappaqua, was supposed to have only sham opposition (let's see... how about a wild-haired "socialist" from one of the whitest states in the Union; now there's a sure loser!) in her stately waddle to the Democrat nomination for president this year. After all, she was unfairly beaten by an upstart nobody last time out, complied an impressive body count during her resume-enhancing stint at State, and therefore she was now owed.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the forum: Sanders keeps beating her in state after state. His supporters have an energy sadly lacking among the geriatric Baby Boomers who support Clinton, mostly because "she's a woman." And now the media is getting mad.
Too bad. They made their bed. They propped this woman up thinking that they could just gloss over her many flaws. Now they can stew in their own juices.
