The Return of the PUMAs

The dead-enders who supported Hillary Clinton for president in 2008 make a predictably splashy and hopeless gesture with a pro-Hillary ad running in a few small markets. CNN talks to the funder, who offers the immortal quote: "'Im a dentist and I don't think this country is headed in the right direction."


Seriously, though: Essay on my desk in the morning about how the first black president will lose a Democratic primary to someone in his administration. One thousand words or less.
