The day Hillary Clinton completely imploded

"Senator Obama's support among working, hardworking Americans, white Americans is weakening again, and ... the whites in both states who had not attended college were supporting me...."
Over the course of one day, just hours, Hillary Clinton said the preceding grotesque sentence and sent a mind numbingly self serving and deceptive open letter to Senator Obama and probably stamped out the last lingering ember of respect that the African American community had for the Clintons. It's actually been quite stunning to watch.

When I had breaks today - every hour or so, there was some new insane act or pronouncement from the Clinton camp, for instance that Clinton strategist Mark Penn apparently didn't know that the Democratic primary was picked by proportional representation and thought Hillary could win if she carried Los Angeles.

But nothing matches the viciously calculating appeal to intolerance and division as that one sentence.

Clinton ended her run today, and she ended it ugly.
