David Simon, Call Your Office

I don't blame Tom Schaller for this but methinks maybe an editor at The Baltimore Sun should have been a bit more cautious:

Whether or not Mrs. Clinton can come back to win the nomination, fellow Sen. Barack Obama's victories in Iowa and, last night, in New Hampshire utterly demolished any notion of her inevitability. He is now the clear front-runner, a development that has shaken up not only the Democratic primary but the Republican one as well. His continued success would also make an independent run by New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg much less likely.

Ah, buyouts.
