Heard on the way to work this morning: Numerous pundits and primary voters claiming that, in the past few days, Hillary Clinton has finally shown her humanity and proven she has a soul.
Initial reaction: Shouldn't one's humanity and possession of a soul be some sort of baseline requirement for public office, rather than the thing that pushes you over the top?
Current thinking: So along with calculating and ambitious, we get get emotional and fallible — bonus!
Bottom line: Maybe a cold, calculating leader with a commanding presence wouldn't be so bad — vote Zod in 2008!
