Paul Krugman today writes about the visceral hatred among some Democrats for Hillary Clinton:
Why, then, is there so much venom out there?
I won’t try for fake evenhandedness here: most of the venom I see is coming from supporters of Mr. Obama, who want their hero or nobody. I’m not the first to point out that the Obama campaign seems dangerously close to becoming a cult of personality. We’ve already had that from the Bush administration — remember Operation Flight Suit? We really don’t want to go there again.
This characterization of Obama supporters seems rather loopy, in particular because Krugman doesn't even bother with evidence. That's a shame. For even if you think that Krugman is wrong, he generally tries to be right.
