Required Reading

Maureen Dowd in today's NYT. She's getting better after several years of lightweight commentary. Today she talks about the Obama campaign's inept critique of Hillary's finances, saying:
One question I’d like to ask the Leo who would be First Lad: When you rake in $10 million a year from speeches, do you really need that $150,000 for speaking to the Boys and Girls Club of L.A.?
She then homes in on the question that many of us are asking:
Obama is too busy modeling to make this point, but the Clinton financial disclosures raise a big question: Do we want the country run again by a couple who get so easily wrapped around the fingers of anyone who is rich? As long as a guy was willing to give them millions, would it matter if his name were Al Capone?

Well, I thought the Dowd column pretty well defined lightweight commentary. She's created a whole new genre: political chicklit. The Pundit Wore Prada.
