Quotes From Around Yon Blogosphere

In the end, Hillary will do what's best for her, and taking a credentials fight to the convention floor, especially if it's a losing one, is not going to be best for her.

Some people age better than others, of course: the 65-year-old Harrison Ford looks sprightly enough in the new Indiana Jones film. But eventually the mind slows, the arteries clog, the ability to deal with new challenges dulls. The announcement this week that Edward Kennedy (76) is suffering from brain cancer is a reminder of life's most basic truth. Is America really confident enough in Mr McCain's vitality to give him the most demanding job in the world? Not too many companies would even consider a man of his age for the CEO slot.
