Clinton tries dirty disenfranchisement tricks in Nevada

Last March, Democrats in Nevada planned their caucus to include nine at-large sites to allow casino workers (union and non-union) to vote during the workday. It's a great idea to make it easy for as many people as possible to vote, right?

Hillary Clinton doesn't think so, at least not anymore. Two days after Culinary Workers Union Local 226 (Vegas's casino, hotel, and restaurant worokers union) endorsed Obama, the Nevada State Education Association – clearly acting as a Clinton proxy – filed a lawsuit asking a federal judge to shutdown the sites.

I've come to expect efforts from Republicans to keep people from the polls, but this...ah, well. Remember when Greenspan called Bill Clinton "the best Republican president we've had in a while"? Perhaps this just shows that Hillary is indeed trying to follow in her husband's footsteps, as a moderate Republican in a Democrat's skin.

Also worth reading are these two little pieces on Clinton in Slate: Timothy Noah on her claims of "experience", and Christopher Hitchens on her flexible approach to truth.
