Post-Clinton

One thing to take away from yesterday; whether it is fair to say that the Democratic Party is Barack Obama’s party yet or not, on thing it is clearly not is the Clintons’ party. This was always a shakier aspect to the broader media narrative, namely that the Clintons owned the party machinery. In fact, when you look at the operating structure of the Democratic Party (in particular leaders like Howard Dean and Nancy Pelosi) you see a goodly number of people who are not only not Clinton allies, in terms of intra-party scuffles they can be downright hostile to the Clinton wing of the party.

But Wolf Blitzer can’t tell you that.
