A Matter Of Opinion

Keep an eye on Maddow

On Tuesday evening as the margin in Indiana's primary was narrowing, I was following it on MSNBC, where (along with most other channels, apparently) the concensus among commentaters was that Hillary Clinton would soon be stepping aside. The only questions were how and how soon. Only radio talk show host Rachel Maddow of Air America was reading the chicken entrails differently. Hillary is in it 'til the end, she predicted. Things could still change, of course, but so far, Maddow alone seems to have had it right.
I have to admit, I've become a fan of the woman's humor and insight. It has nothing to do with her far-left views. But I do appreciate the way she can be impassioned and still be both civil and good-natured.
Actually, I think a team of Maddow and conservative Tucker Carlson would blow Hannity and Colmes out of the water. (Of course I make it a point not to watch Hannity and Colmes.)
