Clinton and the Media

It's certainly true that the media, in a lot of ways, isn't exactly kind to the Clintons. Though I have to say that it's also the case that their bizarre obsession with the Clintons has helped her keep the campaign going. While there's a degree of cheering on of her downfall from many quarters, I also think that if the tables were turned and Obama was seen as the presumptive loser by a similar margin they'd be treating him like they treat Huckabee now, as a peripheral figure.

...adding, I don't think they *should* be treating either of them as peripheral figures, wondering aloud when they're going to drop out, but they do have a tendency to start trying to cull the herd about 5 seconds after the Iowa caucuses.
