From the May 10-16th Economist:
In cartoons there is often a moment when a hapless character, having galloped over a cliff, is still unaware of the fact and hangs suspended in the air, legs pumping wildly, until realisation dawns, gravity intervenes and downfall ensues. Hillary Clinton's campaign looks a bit like that this week.
BTW, the same article says:
Mr Obama's main problem with white voters may have more to do with class than race. To the white working man and woman, he has been seen too often as an aloof elitist, who can't drink whisky, displays a suspicious familiarity with the price of an arugula salad and memorably bowled a deplorable 37 in Altoona, Pennsylvania.

Ah, but Hillary Clinton is the most qualified candidate for President of the USA by all measures. A nice voice and pretty suits don't qualify someone for President, even if his wife is finally proud of being an American now that some voters are backing her personal interests in climbing to the top of the heap.
