Hillary Clinton is 2008’s Ralph Nader

Scanning the results and analysis from yesterday’s Pennsylvania primary gave me nasty flashbacks to 2000 and the role Ralph Nader played in sticking us with the disastrous reign of George W. Bush. Hillary is apparently willing to do exactly the same thing to us this year, continuing to fight for the nomination beyond all hope of earning it, thereby tipping the scales just enough in John McCain’s favor to guarantee us four (or eight) more years of ruinous war and even more ruinous domestic and financial policy.

Like Nader before her, Hillary is busily earning herself a seat in Dante’s Ninth Circle of Hell, stubbornly sacrificing her country and her party in pursuit of her insatiable personal ambition. If John McCain is our next president, she will shoulder a disproportionate share of the blame.
