I’m Supposed To Care?

That Barack and Hillary are no longer BFF?

WASHINGTON, Aug. 4 — They work in the same building. They slog through the same rigorous travel schedule. Along the way, they often cross paths several times a day.
But Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama have barely spoken to each other — at least in any meaningful way — for months.
The tension between the two Democratic presidential hopefuls, which has spilled into public view in the last three weeks, has been intensifying since January. It is clear that the genteel decorum of the Senate has given way to the go-for-the-jugular instinct of the campaign trail.
As the Senate held late sessions of back-to-back votes before its summer break, the two rivals kept a careful eye on each other as they moved across the Senate floor. For more than two hours one night, often while standing only a few feet apart, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama never approached each other or exchanged so much as a pleasantry.

Who cares.
But I guess that this is the level of insight and analysis that the “All the news that’s fit to print on tiny newsprint” NYT can come up with these days.

    If only John Edwards was still in the Senate, he could tell Barack he wanted to hang out with him in the Senate library after third period, then tell Hillary the same thing. There’s no doubt they’d be friends again by lunch.

    They could all go to the salon together, I guess.

  3. Gunslinger says:

    After the primaries, they’ll be back to being cosy and chummy. Practically all politicians do that sort of thing.
    Bunch of frauds.
