Hillary = Tonya Harding

So says a DNC official, off the record, to ABC:
What will she have to do to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, in order to eke out her improbable victory?

She will have to "break his back," the official said. She will have to destroy Obama, make Obama completely unacceptable.

"Her securing the nomination is certainly possible - but it will require exercising the 'Tonya Harding option.'" the official said. "Is that really what we Democrats want?"

The Tonya Harding Option -- the first time I've heard it put that way.

It implies that Clinton is so set on ensuring that Obama doesn't get the nomination, not only is she willing to take extra-ruthless steps, but in the end neither she nor Obama win the gold.
That would make Bill Clinton Jeff Gilooly.

Let's start a movement now and make it clear, as a democrat, we will not support Hillary Clinton as our presidental nominee. We must make this clear to the super delegates, Howard Dean and the rest of the democratic party. This needs to go public.
