“Gave Me A Shudder”

That’s Peggy Noonan’s reaction to the conclusion to my interview this week with Christopher Hitchens.

Noonan on Hillary:

What do I think is the biggest reason Mrs. Clinton came back? She kept her own spirits up to the point of denial and worked it, hard, every day. She is hardy, resilient, tough. She is a train on a track, an Iron Horse. But we must not become carried away with generosity. The very qualities that impress us are the qualities that will make her a painful president. She does not care what you think, she will have what she wants, she will not do the feints, pivots and backoffs that presidents must. She is neither nimble nor agile, and she knows best. She will wear a great nation down.

True enough about Hillary’s relentlessness. As I said on CNN this morning, the Clinton’s have made a decision to destroy Barack Obama because that is what is necessary to achieve power. It is already an eye-opener for the Dems to see the politics of personal destruction unleashed on St. Obama. Popping him on to the ticket in Denver won’t heal all the wounds already and soon-to-be-inflicted.

As Mark Steyn declared on the program yesterday: “It’s a bit like some psycho version of Driving Miss Daisy, this primary race.”
