Clintons -- a last stand that lacks class!

AS HER ham-handed handlers insult entire states, and her self-absorbed husband indulges in red-faced, finger-wagging outbursts, Sen. Hillary Clinton soldiers on.

It is a joyless campaign, with stump speeches that carry tales of woe and get delivered in a booming voice that could open a wall safe.

A full three months after the Iowa caucuses, nearly two months after Washington's caucuses, the Clintons seem bent on turning the Democrats' fertile ground into scorched earth.

The campaign has come back to the Northwest.

Clinton's candidacy is hardly the same one touted by national pundits as "inevitable" when she held three $2,300-a- head fundraisers here in October.

And we've witnessed a former front-runner's ability to step in it -- and stay there.

Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico, holder of two Cabinet-level posts in the Clinton administration, bounded into a Portland rally two weeks ago to endorse Sen. Barack Obama.

The retaliation was swift, furious and self-defeating.

Clinton backer James Carville, noting that Richardson made up his mind during Holy Week, opined: "Mr. Richardson's endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic."

If Richardson is Judas, which Clinton is Jesus?

Act 2 came last weekend in California, when Bill Clinton met privately with California's convention superdelegates.

Rachel Binah, a supporter of Richardson's presidential candidacy earlier this year who now backs Clinton, told the ex-president she was "sorry" to hear Carville's remarks. (Carville has gone to every media outlet that would have him to repeat the insult.)

Bill Clinton erupted. "Five times to my face (Richardson) said that he would never do that," said a beet-faced Bubba.

"The former president then went on a tirade that ran from the media's unfair treatment of Hillary to questions about the fairness of votes in state caucuses that voted for Obama," the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The official Clinton reaction to Richardson's endorsement was condescension.

"The time (Richardson) could have been effective has long since passed. ... I don't think it is a significant endorsement in this environment," declared Clinton "chief strategist" Mark Penn.

Sound familiar? After Super Tuesday, Penn declared that Obama had won only one "significant" state, his home base of Illinois. Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Missouri -- and Washington that Saturday -- are dismissed by Hillaryland.

The campaign stumbled on, trying to explain the candidate's false statement that she landed under fire while on a visit to Bosnia as first lady. The TV footage of the event showed a standard-issue welcoming ceremony.

Come Wednesday, Richardson's endorsement was back on ABC News. Hillary Clinton was quoted as disparaging Obama to Richardson, saying: "He cannot win, Bill. He cannot win."

She was denying the statement Thursday.

The defections must stick in the craw of the Clintons. Bill Clinton watched the Super Bowl with Richardson in New Mexico, seeking the very endorsement that is now dismissed.

Senior party nabobs are sending a message: It's time for you to go.

They've cleared the table, put the cat out, and are yawning at the power couple that gave them the first Democratic presidential re-election since FDR.

Look at Tuesday's Obama endorsements: Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal, a U.S. attorney under Clinton; 9/11 Commission member and former Indiana Rep. Tim Roemer; ex-House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Lee Hamilton; and ex-Montana Sen. John Melcher.

Jimmy Carter was heard from in (of all places) a Nigerian newspaper.

"Don't forget that Obama won my state of Georgia," Carter said. (Take that, Mark Penn.) "My town, which is home to 625 people, is for Obama. My children and their spouses are pro-Obama. My grandchildren are pro-Obama."

He's staying officially neutral, of course.

When left to her own devices, Hillary Clinton can be a highly impressive human being.

She delivered a superlative, insightful briefing on global warming in the Arctic, after a 2005 tour with Sen. John McCain. At a Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas, a man shouted that his wife was "an illegal." "No woman is illegal," Clinton shot back, earning days of rancid abuse from right-wing pundits.

New Year's Day found Clinton in Ames, Iowa, delivering a so-so stump speech, but then engaging in an engrossing question-and-answer session.

Alas, The Des Moines Register reported that morning that the candidate had taken questions in only three of her previous 27 "town meetings."

The press is rough on the Clintons, but Obama has lately stilled a media firestorm.

The miscalculations and misjudgments -- which likely have cost Hillary Clinton the nomination, and Bill Clinton much of his reputation -- are the campaign's own doing.

In years past, the Clintons showed an amazing knack for getting themselves into binds, then escaping tight corners. It has deserted them.

Obama and Hillary Clinton will appear Saturday night when Montana Democrats hold their annual Mansfield-Metcalf Dinner in Butte. It won't be hard to tell which candidacy carries the most baggage.

So wie die Dinge liegen wird der Trampel mangels Marie und vieler Schulden bald die Fahne von der Stange herunterholen müssen.
Da hilft auch die ganze hakennasige Wallstreetmannschaft trotz heftigem Gröhlen nichts mehr!

Merks: die Typen dort setzen ihre Marie auf kein lahmes Pferd, aber dem Obama wäre zu empfehlen, in Zukunft keineswegs in offenen Limousinen durch die Lande zu reisen. Zu dieser Warnung wäre als klangliche Untermalung das nette Liedlein "....komt ein Kugerl geflogen..." bestens geeignet.

Den Kennedy haben sie sein Leiden wirkungsvoll deswegen gekürzt, weil der dem auserwählten Volk den Zugang zum A-Bomberl verwehren wollte, was aber von seiner Sicht aus ein Blödsinn war!
