    Subcultures spawn defining rituals: fans of Insane Clown Posse have the Gathering of the Juggalos; practitioners of radical self-realization congregate at Burning Man; and for the national journo-politico elite and its legion of camp followers there are the publication of Bob Woodward's inside-the-Beltway, memo-and-tell, docudramas.

    To be honest, I was a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter, before and even after Barack Obama won the nomination. I had hoped to celebrate the civil victory of a woman earning the party nomination, so it took me a little while to get behind Obama - whose nomination is, obviously, also a civil victory - because I was, frankly, utterly unprepared for him to be running on the Democratic ticket.

    First she tried to market the image of herself as a fearless first-lady-caught-in the-line-of fire with her exaggerated claims of narrowly missing sniper fire while on a visit to Bosnia in 1996, but now she’s trying to dupe the public into thinking she possesses the same die-hard, give-it-your-all, not-going-down-without-a-fight personality as…Rocky Balboa?

    The suggestion by Ma and Pa Clinton that Barack Obama become vice president on their ticket is amusing and inventive.

But don't be too dismissive of desparation. The Clintons do their best work when it looks as if they are finished, or at least up against a wall: surviving the various bimbo eruptions up to and including impeachment are cases in point.

    Unless there's busloads of uncounteds out there, Massachusetts looks like a rout. We'll leave the post-mortems to the guys on staff who know this stuff better than us, but you don't have to be Karl Rove to read this as a blow for Ted Kennedy -- of those polled, less than half of Massachusetts Democrats said Kennedy's endorsement of Obama was important -- and also a significant boost for Tom Menino, who stuck by the Hillz to the end.

    I’m back in Boston after spending a couple of hours in Manchester, New Hampshire and must say that I’ve never encountered anything like the surge of interest in Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.
