I'm still standing better than I ever did...


There she is, Hillary Clinton, looking like a true survivor to borrow words from Sir Elton John.

I must confess. I feel exactly the same way Joe Scarborough does when it comes to Hillary Clinton. I admire her for her strength of character and am absolutely blown away by her tenacity and resilience--not to mention how much I love her laugh. Of course my ultimate choice in this US election has been John McCain from the beginning. But that's what my head says. As far as my heart is concerned, well, I find myself rooting for this "phenomenal woman."

Just like Eleanor Clift, I'm beginning to feel Hillary could pull this off (thank you Pennsylvania!). She must win Indiana, keep her loss in North Carolina within single digits, and then she'll be able to run the table in West Virginia, Kentucky and Puerto Rico. That way, she'll lead in the popular votes (with or without Florida) by June 3rd and will be able to present a very strong case to superdelegates as to why she deserves to be the nominee.

Sounds far-fetched? I don't think so. The odds are long I know, specially considering the fact that except Fox News, the media are totally in the tank for Obama. But If anyone can turn this thing around, it is Hillary Clinton. Again to borrow words from Sir Elton:

And did you think this fool could never win,
Well look at me, I'm coming back again,
I got a taste of love in a simple way,
And if you need to know while I'm still standing you just fade away...
