The thought of Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama as president appalls me. Both are "liberal fascists," but Clinton is a personally despicable one.
So, I chortle (not cackle) every time Obama beats Clinton in a primary. But as Obama racks up those primary wins he becomes the more likely nominee of the Democrat Party.
Obama (so the polls say) is more electable than Clinton. Therefore, my delight in Obama's success against Clinton may become my dismay if that success leads to an Obama presidency.
I resolve, therefore, to hope that Clinton becomes the Democrat nominee -- much as I would enjoy seeing Clinton (and Clinton) rejected by their own party.
