I have spent today digesting the 'subtle' signal from Mike Bloomberg that he might be running for President. This is supposed to be a sharp-eyed businessman with a keen sense of what works: Does he really think America wants a Ross Perot with less crazy but more Jew? No chance. But that lapse of judgement pales against Hillary's choice for campaign song: a Celine Dion number written by a Canadian for an Air Canada commercial. Irrespective of taste, why pick a song to begin with? The U.S. is electing a president in 2008, not an alderman in 1956. Play music at campaign stops if you want, but this just seems old-fashioned and small-time, while the world burns. I am growing to think Hillary is a bad candidate for anything. Unless, maybe, you need a really scary dead-eyed woman to chair your garden club.
