Democrats cheering the possibility of an Obama-Clinton (or Clinton-Obama) dream ticket during last Thursday’s Kodak debate “didn’t seem to know that in Hollywood, couples who have chemistry on screen often don’t like each other off screen, and ones who are involved off screen often don’t have any chemistry on screen,” N.Y. Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote today. “And so it is with Barack and Hillary. Thursday night was not the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Just a beautiful, dare we say, fairy tale.”
The last seven graphs, an account of a testy face-off Obama and Clinton had on 12.13.07, otherwise known as “the tarmac moment,” make for informative reading, and are not in the least bit flattering to Clinton, a one-eyed jack if there ever was one when it comes to televised debates. Just read it.
