I Guess He’s Too Young

Ezra Klein writes about Hillary Clinton’s campaign:

Put another way: If Hillary Clinton does not win delegates out of a majority of contested primaries and caucuses, her aides are willing to rip the party apart to secure the nomination, to cheat in a way that will rend the Democratic coalition and probably destroy Clinton’s chances in the general election. Imagine the fury in the African-American community if Barack Obama leads in delegates but is denied the nomination because the Clinton campaign is able to change the rules to seat delegates from Michigan, where no other candidates were even on the ballot, and from Florida, where no one campaigned. Imagine the anger among the young voters Obama brought into the process, and was making into Democratic voters. Imagine the feeling of betrayal among his supporters more generally, and the disgust among independents watching the battle take place on the convention floor. Imagine how statesmanlike John McCain will look in comparison, how orderly and focused the Republican convention will appear.

I can only speculate that he’s too young to remember the Clinton presidency. Of course Hillary Clinton will leave no stone unturned in her quest for her party’s nomination for the presidency.

What about her behavior over the last 20 years lead him to believe that it would have been otherwise?
