This was the week of the near tear, the hot button iron, and the polls that couldn't count straight. The tape of Hillary's choke up was analyzed more closely than the Zapruder film, with the media parsing each quiver of her lip with Talmudic intensity. Waterworks might have cost Ed Muskie New Hampshire in '72, and delivered it to Clinton 36 years later. Or maybe it was Hillary's standing ovation-inducing retort to the "iron my shirt" hecklers: "Oh, the remnants of sexism are alive and well." Take that, chauvinist shock jock pigs! As for the pollsters, they were as accurate in their prediction of an Obama cakewalk as the neocons were in predicting one in Iraq. To battle the pollsters' chronic inaccuracy, HuffPost has launched a Say No to Pollsters petition. Sign up here.
