Have you noticed that most of the things you've been told over and over again about Hillary Clinton -- how crafty, organized, and ruthless she is -- have turned out not to be true?
- Although they are pretty much tied in the primaries, Obama has beaten her like a drum in the caucuses, where organization and technical mastery of arcane rules matters most.
- On her staff, the loyalists like former campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle, are incompetent. But her mercenaries, leakers, and backstabbers are also incompetent.
- Yet, she hasn't been ruthless at all in running against Obama. For example, the Rev. Wright DVDs were available for the whole world to buy from Rev. Wright's church, but Hillary didn't use them.
