I was a huge fan of Maureen Dowd for years. Her column was bitting, funny and relevant. But in the past year, I find my self wondering what happened -- to her? Today's rambling column about Obama, which manages to squeeze in almost no real substance (reporting or analysis), and found yet another way to say something snide about Bill Clinton, occupied the column inches that Dowd could use to actually say something. In a sense, one wonders if she has much gas left in the tank. Should she should move the column to People Magazine? Can she get back to work, start thinking again, and justify the prime NYT real estate she now occupies?
