Don’t tarnish Clinton’s legacy

As the Democrats convene in Denver to celebrate Hillary Clinton and nominate Barack Obama, a tiny minority of her supporters continues to behave petulantly. They whine, they bluster, they agitate.

Bill Dixon told me that "politics ain't bean bags" and he was correct, but even politics has some rules.

No one could have defeated Barack Obama in this year. Tonight I'll be at the Majestic on King Street in Madison at 5:15 discussing super delegates and other stuff. Should be fun, and that is what...
