Barack Obama and the Clinton hydra

January 25, 2008 |  9:06 am


You know, sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

Hillary Clinton, making the rounds of network morning shows today, says her famous husband told her that "maybe he got a little bit carried away" in his blistering verbal attacks on Barack Obama. The former first lady hasn't exactly been a shrinking violet herself, and OBatboyfbibama has responded in kind.

Which set up this wonderful N.Y. Post cover from earlier in the week, with its echoes of both Hercules battling the Hydra and the late, lamented Weekly World News tabloid and its infatuation with the "bat child."

Who says politics is all serious policy wonk stuff?
