As with DU, MSNBC was like oxygen when Bush was in office, or, at least, the few Democratic anchors who were on MSNBC then were like oxygen. (Olberman first, then Maddow. Matthews very literally drooled over Bush in 2004 before Obama made his leg tingle in 2008.)

In hindsight, it almost seems as though the MSNBC crowd knew Obama was going to beat Hillary. At least, they all seemed in his corner and borderline disrespectful of her. At the time, I am sorry to say that was okay with me because I was soooo pro Obama at the time.

I probably would not even have noticed the (relative) dismissiveness and disrespect as to Hillary except that I was posting at the time with a couple of very strong Hillary supporters who yowled over every slight, perceived or real.

I would never have voted for Hillary--nor will I. Still, in hindsight, it was not right.

It is annoying that pundits have already been saying for months that, if she chooses to run, she would clear the primary field: no other Democrat would choose to challenge her and none has a chance of succeeding. Talk about trying to create a self-fulfilling prophesy.

If she chooses to run, LOL. As "if" there's ever been a doubt.

In 2008, I was posting with a woman from Hawaii who was also very pro Obama. She would post a photo of Hillary, with an odd facial expression and a tall wig with little signs stuck in it, one saying 2008, another saying 2012 and a third saying 2016. It never got old for me. And it still rings true.
