Hillary Clinton the populist?

According to a Washington Post story Hillary Clinton morphed into a populist politician over the weekend. Talking like a fighter, she said she is the candidate who will stand up for the little guy. But her husband supported NAFTA -- which is blamed for having driven well-paying blue collar jobs South. Obama is already calling her bluff.

I suspect people can only stay hyped up about Obamamania only for so long. Ralph Nader's entry into the race was refreshing to me. It was good to hear someone talking about some bold ideas.

I sense the pendulum may be about to swing back towards Hillary. I feel inclined to listen to her some more. Whether any shift in momentum goes far enough to do Hillary any good in Texas and Ohio remains an open question. But don't count her out just yet.
