In the aftermath of the disappointing results of “Super Tuesday” (February 5, 2008), by which time she had expected to clinch the Democratic nomination, Senator Hillary Clinton became more aggressive in her attacks against Senator Barack Obama. Old politics would have suggested counterattacks by Senator Obama but, in a sign of things to come, he in fact did not pursue the aggressive attack style of old politics. His style developed as punctilious, cerebrally playing by the rules laid out, and strategizing accordingly. 1 In the end, this was like throwing a slider strike to the Clinton campaign, which only too late realized that the rules of the game had changed. However, she ignored these new rules until it was too late. Between Super Tuesday and the meeting of the Democratic National Convention Rules Committee, I wrote the following notes, some perhaps a little more passionate than fair-minded, including allegations that were perhaps more campaign fodder than fact.
