Barack Obama is being declared the winner in today’s Wisconsin Democratic primary. And apparently while some of us were busy watching “American Idol,” Hillary Clinton was giving another non-concession speech — the third time (according to some reports) that she has delivered such a speech on the evening of a loss without conceding the loss or congratulating her opponent.
One could argue that she is trying to show strength by quickly shifting her focus to the next objective rather than dwelling on the day’s loss. That’s a weak argument and a wrong-headed attitude on her part. She looks neither strong nor focused. She looks ungracious and angry. A sore loser. Her advisors should have pointed this out to her the first time it happened, or the second. But three times?
As Dick Vitale might say, “Three strikes and you’re out, baby!”
