Top 10: Songs for Hillary Clinton

Share on Nextdoor

On Tuesday, four primary elections could squelch Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's wish of returning to the White House as our country's first woman president. The former Democratic front-runner and world's most famous female cuckold appeared poised for victory in the early rounds of this brutal bout but if Clinton gets knocked down in Texas and Ohio she'll likely throw in the towel — her own hubby has indicated as much.

I'm not counting Hillary out, though. Senator Barack Obama's 11-state roll finds him riding high but his opponent is famously scrappy and has maintained a relatively classy campaign in the face of recent failures — a factor that might swing voters to her corner.

I've gunned for Obama all along but suddenly feel sympathetic towards Hillary, who has gotten scrutinized by the press while her upstart rival largely enjoys a free pass. Plus, there would be nothing more riveting than seeing the contest come down to a convention floor battle goosed by superdelegate shenanigans and looming lawsuits. Here's to hoping Hillary pulls through tomorrow and keeps this spectacle alive.
