Something Obvious

That the contest between Clinton and Obama will now continue is a good thing if that struggle produces a candidate who is tested -- fair questions; weaknesses probed -- and survives that testing and thus emerges strengthened.

If Clinton and Obama bloody one another -- innuendo, slander, irrelevancies presented as gaping wounds -- to the extent the survivor is weakened in the general election and then it's a bad thing. I don't know what will happen.

That the nomination seems worth having may drive either or both of them to extremes. Meanwhile, let us hope the Republicans do worse to one another.
