"America is back"?
"I am convinced that with this resounding vote, with the millions of Americans who will vote next Tuesday, we will send a clear message that America is back and we will take charge of our destiny once again," she said to a boisterous crowd. "This has been a record turnout because Floridians wanted their voices to be heard." Hillary Clinton, in Florida, 29 January 2008 (cited in Hillary Clinton hails victory as Barack Obama cries spin, emphasis added by this blogger)Hopefully she meant that the strong turnout for the primary -- albeit, in the case of Florida, one which ought to be ignored -- shows that interest in presidential elections is no longer in decline, and not that supporting other candidates might be un-American. Senator, would you please rephrase that?
