Campaigning in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Friday, the former president [Bill Clinton] brushed aside suggestions his wife [Hillary] would prove to be a divisive nominee for the Democratic Party, pointing out how she has successfully worked with Republicans in the Senate — including one of the current GOP presidential candidates.

“She and John McCain are very close,” Clinton said. “They always laugh that if they wound up being the nominees of their party, it would be the most civilized election in American history, and they’re afraid they’d put the voters to sleep because they like and respect each other.”

This pretty much says why I wouldn’t vote for either of them. Too similar.

Update: Obama’s crushing victory in South Carolina will keep things interesting. It probably adds additional fuel to Edwards’ trip towards the exit.

Juno was awesome. 5/5. Serious topic, serious actors, biting sarcasm, and excellent music. Probably my favorite in-theatre viewing since Stardust (and I saw that twice). So yeah. Juno.
