Toxic

So says Marshall, with a nugget that hadn’t occured to me:

What she’s doing is not securing her the nomination. Rather, she’s gunning up a lot of her supporters to believe that the nomination was stolen from her — a belief many won’t soon abandon. And that on the basis of rationales and arguments there’s every reason to think she doesn’t even believe in.

Is it possible she’s trying to leave her supporters, er, bitter? I’ve paid half-credence to ideas that she wants Obama to lose so she can run in 2012 (mostly because I think she has to see that a goodly chunk of the Democratic primary voters would blame her for costing them what they see as a sure-fire win and punish her for it then), but who knows. Is she THAT power hungry?
