The Three [Hundred] Faces Of Eve [Hillary]

After losing eleven in a row and boring us all with a fireworks-free debate that showed her conciliatory side last week, Hillary’s changed her tune again. This weekend Hill came out fighting. She was at times angry and at times sarcastic. She continues to berate Barack-star for raising folks’ hopes. Bad Barack. Bad Barack. Down boy, down boy.

I’ve been reading that there are two factions in the Hill Camp. One side is worried about protecting her `long-term legacy.’ That’s the conciliatory side of Hill, “I’m honored to be on the same stage as Barack Obama.” The other side says `win at all costs.’ That's the attack dog in her: “So shame on you Barack Obama. It is time you ran a campaign consistent with your messages in public. That’s what I expect from you. Meet me in Ohio and let’s have a debate about your tactics and your behavior in this campaign,”

Not saying which path she’s chosen to take…but Drudge has posted a photo of Barack-star in traditional Somali garb that was released by someone in the Clinton Camp. After Barack-star called the photo a campaign smear, Maggie Williams Hill’s newly-ensconced campaign manager (who also just happens to be African-American) coyly replied, “If Barack Obama's campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed.” Maggie didn’t say why the photo was released by Hill’s peeps in the first place.

Ooooooooooohhhh…it’s gettin’ good now. Which Hillary will show up for tomorrow night’s debate (maybe final?) on MSNBC? Finger to the wind, folks.
