As regular readers will recall, this page was very critical of Hillary Clinton during the primary campaign. Let us acknowledge, then, that she has been a good soldier for the Democrats and the Obama campaign, crowned by her motion to nominate him by acclamation.
Let's also pay tribute to her ability to keep the fervent loyalty of her supporters. There are many who do not like Sen. Clinton, but she has built a cadre of people--not all of them women--who would walk through fire for her. Not many politicians can claim such a cadre.
