A word of advice for Senator Clinton
Skip South Carolina. After tomorrow, announce that you're taking a moment to retool the campaign. Fire Mark Penn. I know he's like family, but this is about your career, and what you believe to be best for the nation. Let the word leak that you're tired of being handled, and that it's time to let Hillary be Hillary. And be Hillary. The lies, the sexist reactions to your every emotion, and the pummeling from the media and the most shrill bloggers will continue. Play on it. The hatred is neither warranted nor rational. It says much more about the haters than about you. Bet it all on Florida and California. Win those, hold New York, and you're back in command of the race.
