“It’s only words and words are all I have to take your heart away,” by the Brothers Gibb.

If Hillary had borrowed a paragraph from somebody else’s speech bag and not given him/her credit, she would be toast and we all know it.

A CNN poll has The Lone Star State at 50% Hillary, 48% Obama, with 2 % undecided – I guess they are talking about Commentary and The Dean still being on the fence. The CNN poll also says that 25% of Dems could still pull the old switcheroo – that means H-Town’s Latino voters are up for grabs.

Meanwhile, the Chron has a front page story today on the Super Duper Dem Delegates. The story says that DNCer Bob Slagle is uncommitted but will vote for Hillary – huh? Uncommitted Bob called me last week saying he was supporting Hillary and asked me to join in.

The Super Duper Dem Delegates are kind of like our dirty little secret that the whole world now knows about. We like to call ourselves the Party of the regular folks but we have this elite smudge on our dress shirt that is screaming out – kind of like that Super Bowl TV ad. It is the talk of the talking heads. Whose idea was this anyway?

Andy Pettitte says he’s a user but not a cheater. He also apologized to me. OK, apology accepted. Maybe we can now move on and talk about the more important things like Kaz, Valverde and Tejada.
