Clinton Keeps ’em Waiting

Hillary Clinton continued to run hard for the Democratic nomination even though she was all but mathematically eliminated months ago. Then, despite the last primaries taking place Tuesday and Barack Obama passing the magic threshold to get the nomination that evening, she still hasn’t conceded.

She was scheduled to deliver her belated concession address at noon in the National Building Museum, where throngs of her supporters have been waiting since this morning. She finally left her house to drive over at 12:26.

At least she’s consistent, I guess.

    Can we all agree at least that her picture should adorn the dictionary entry for “Drama Queen”?

    Oh — damn, sorry, that’s obviously sexist. “High-Ranking Royal Person of Overly Dramatic Tendencies.” There.

    Typical of the Clinton’s.

    It’s just their continuing game of one-ups man-ship.. I’ll do it my way, in my own time. They have always ignored a basic human courtesy and make it more about themselves than the situation at hand.

    It played out a long time ago.

    You common people will just have to wait.
    It’s all about me.
