1c:A mistake made by a member of the opposition party that can be vaguely and clumsily pinned to the opposition's nominee.

Check out this link for an article written by The Chuck http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26159042/

Very informative and cuts through the crap about Clinton's chances.

Chuck is tie-less in this video today.

Also, he lost the Fishbowl contest. Some DJ got like 10,000 votes this morning.

It's truly an amazing sight. He's barely recognizable sans cravat. ;-)

btw, that is a really excellent article. He says the media never challenged Clinton's chances, but I think he did back then & fairly often.

My thing is that Clinton didn't react fast enough to the changing climate during the primaries, especially early on, and now we know why. She essentially squandered the nomination by not changing strategies when she had the chance, and even though The Chuck did not come out and say, it came across in his reporting.
