The ever crucial Fred Barnes seal of approval

Obama couldn't function without it:

Clinton, for all her shortcomings, doesn't hail from the surrender-at-all-costs wing of the Democratic party.

Thanks Fred. Also it's nice to see some on the left and on the right joined in this notion that there is "center-right" in the Democratic party.  I could even go with "the conservative wing" of the Democratic Party. But "center-right?" It's just stupid phraseology to paper over real differences.  Who thinks Hillary Clinton would be Secretary of State if McCain had won? Again, my handle on economics is wobbly. But I'm pretty sure Tim Geithner isn't Phil Gramm.
