Hillary "Rottweiler" Rodham Clinton
Tenacity is an amazing thing, an admirable quality. Greater personal tenacity in the appropriate areas of my life might have seen me through some dark times and in a better position today. However tenacity will only take you so far and at some point a person really does need to learn when to let it go. Failure to learn this can lead to heartache, heartbreak, financial woes, emotional and personal difficulties and so.
About a month ago, I would have used tenacious to describe Hillary Clinton in her bid for the Democratic nomination. Things looked good for her, even though Barack Obama was standing on fairly even footing with her. But their campaigns have dragged on (and on) and I think most Democrats are wishing they could just get it over with. She is in debt and she is losing ground. Super delegates are abandoning her for Mr. Obama and she's resorted to divisive tactics such as race and gender baiting in order to pull ahead. Mr. Obama is wisely turning his attention to John McCain and I think Ms. Clinton had ought to consider her attention to other areas as well.
