Last thoughts on Wisconsin

Last thoughts on Wisconsin

  • Someone -- Joe Scarborough, maybe? -- pointed out that McCain is framing the general election, which, let's get real, starts today, people, as eloquence vs. experience. Those weren't the exact words, but that's the gist. The point was, that's exactly the same argument that hasn't been working for Hillary Clinton.

  • Hawaii comes in 3 to 1 for Obama. Of course, it's a caucus so it doesn't count.

  • Apparantly, Mike Huckabee said something, but it was in the middle of Obama's speech and no one came back to him. I'm still amazed at Obama's timing: he scored 48 uninterrupted minutes of free air time. Meanwhile, the early McCain speech and relative lack of GOP coverage means I only saw MSNBC's Kelly O'Donnell once, at the into of the night's team, and she never reported in at all. Pity.

  • Meanwhile, in Ohio, Hillary Clinton has taken to bashing hedge funds.
    "We also have to reward work more," Clinton told a small group of Ohio residents today. "and by that, I mean, I have people in New York working on Wall Street as investment managers, as hedge fund executives. Under the tax code, they can pay a lower percentage of their income in taxes on $50 million dollars, than a teacher, or a nurse, or a truck driver in Parma pays on $50,000. That's very discouraging to people."

    ABC notes that Team Clinton surrogate Chelsea "No Comment" Clinton works at... a hedge fund! Wonder what she thinks of her mom's comments? Oh, wait. I forgot. She doesn't talk to the press.
