Grey Lady


I don’t know what the headline was in the print edition. But I was interested to notice that the Times is running a subtly, or maybe not so subtly, different headline this morning on the primaries. I wish I’d written last night’s down word for word. But it was something to the effect “Clinton and McCain win victories, Obama close behind, GOP challengers lag.” It obviously wasn’t nearly that long or clunky. But the gist was that the Clinton and McCain had taken the night. Obama was in hot pursuit, while McCain’s GOP rivals were falling back into also-rans. This morning it’s “Clinton and Obama Trade Victories; McCain Pulls Ahead of G.O.P. Rivals.”
