Anyone who thinks the Democrats are a lock to win in November has somehow forgotten about Karl Rove, the right-wing radio network, the hanging chads of 2000, the Swift boat debacle, the intimidation of black voters in Florida, the long lines of Democratic voters standing forlornly in the rain in Ohio, and on and on.

Those who may think that a woman named Clinton or a black man named Obama will have an easy time winning the White House this year should switch to something less disorienting than whatever it is they're smoking.

Repug 2: Yeah? What's happening there now that Barack & Hillary are making nice?
Repug 1: You know that Democratic Big Tent?
Repug 2: What's so big? They're all damned liberals.
Repug 1: Well, bunch of clowns busy chopping away at the ropes & poles.
Repug 2: Sounds good for us. What happened?
Repug 1: I think the Edwards supporters were like ringmasters. They were a small group but everyone respected them. Now they're gone.
