AS i see yesterday's New York primary, Hillary thoroughly trounced Bernie.
Despite the massive rallies of 30,000, despite what appeared to me to be a devastating debate, where Bernie looked better on Israel, looked to be effective in impugning Hillary on her relationship with the banks and Wall Street, despite what looked like a whupping in the debates and on the campaign trail, Hillary prevailed.
Which means, either people are not paying attention to the things I pay attention to, or they are smarter and more critical than I am.
They look at those Wall Street speeches and shrug it off. The lady was just doing what famous people do: They cash in on fame, and Wall Street throws money around; doesn't mean they own you.
As for the Israel exchange, Bernie said Israel over reacted by causing 10,000 casualties in Gaza and Hillary said, that happened because Hamas was hiding behind the skirts of a civilian population, not Israel's fault. I thought that comment got swallowed up by the applause for Bernie's initial statement, but maybe people actually heard that and agreed.
I don't know. Maybe they just really love Hillary in New York.
Whatever it is, this was, had to be, a meaningful win. Of course, there are other states and no one primary this far from the convention is determinate, but it looks as if Hillary is getting through to voters.
Personally, I cannot be unhappy about this. I have been worried that Bernie will be the stronger candidate, the more likely to defeat Trump or Cruz or Paul Ryan, but if Hillary can do this well in New York, that's reassuring.
