Hillary's Opportunity

It is the bad fortune of Hillary Clinton to seek the Presidency in a year in which she is in the presence of a competitor with the potential for true greatness, displayed in his speech earlier today. In other years, she might have merited the nomination, and election.

This is the moment in which she might rise above her personal ambitions for the good of her party, nation and world, and pledge her support to Barack Obama. There will not be a finer opportunity.

Somehow, from what I have seen of her campaign, I am not holding my breath. Perhaps there is a nobility in her character (or political astuteness in her husband's) that I have not yet perceived. I hope so.
