An Apt Comparison? --
At MyDD, Glenn Smith argues that Hillary Clinton's campaign is reminiscent of Jim Mattox/ Who is Jim Mattox? A Democrat with a solid record as Texas attorney general who was running for governor. And if you don't remember him, that's because he was beaten in the primary by Ann Richards.

According to Smith, both Mattox and Clinton are frustrated candidates with solid resumes who can't adjust to facing what they believe to be a charismatic lightweight. I agree with that assessment. In fact, Hillary Clinton seems politically tone-deaf at times and her apparent failure to understand why Obama is winning is something that I hold against her as a candidate. I honestly do not think that she is as capable of dealing with the unexpected as Barack Obama.
