The Unsinkable Hillary Clinton

Hillary says "It's full speed to the White House." Tenacious, thy name is Hillary.

I have never seen anything like it. This woman just keeps going no matter what gets thrown at her. I noticed lately that Obama seems tired and who could blame him? But not Hillary. She's drinking vitamin water, sleeping 8 hours a night, and hitting the road running every morning.

Take for example yesterday at Shepard University in West Virginia:

Clinton endured boos when she mentioned her proposal for a gasoline tax holiday, catcalls when she spoke of ending the Iraq war and, most difficult of all, the heckling of her daughter, Chelsea, who introduced her.
"End the dynasty!" a young man holding an Obama poster shouted when Chelsea Clinton stepped to the microphone.

All the while, a smile was fixed on Hillary Clinton's perfectly made-up face - not a hair was out of place-

The princess of positive continues on:

As a brief news conference after her remarks at the college, she said, "It's a new day, it's a new state, it's a new election," her upbeat tone never wavering. "I'm staying in this race until there's a nominee. I'm going to work as hard as I can to become that nominee."

This shouldn't be a surprise. Not only was she still standing after the complete humiliation as First Lady by her husband during the Lewinsky scandal, but she fought back and stood by his side. After something like that, what's a few more betrayals?

Most of us would have crawled into a fetal position long ago. The woman is made of steel.

It reminds me of the movie Terminator II where a new more advanced Cyborg, T-1000, is sent from the future to kill the boy John. The entire time you watch the movie and they try to kill T-1000 over and over and nothing works, you think there is simply no killing it. This is like Hillary's candidacy. And unless the Democrats can find a vat of molten metal, I don't think they will stop Hillary either.

Will Hillary succeed in getting Michigan and Florida delegates seated? I think so. She is unsinkable. I don't respect her, but I do respect that.

Will the superdelegates be the vat of molten metal for Hillary? Maybe so. But there is no doubt that the Democrats are going to throw away the strongest candidate they have had in a long time.

Or can they?

Update: Hillary writes Obama a letter.
