I know everyone is being nice and patient with the Clintons, and that’s as it should be. Hillary has run a fine campaign, with certain, uh, exceptions. Her policy proposals were excellent. She is, without question, one of the smartest people adorning our public life. But perhaps it wouldn’t be a bad investment for the Democratic Party to hire a good grief counselor right now, especially since “anger” is the stage that comes right after “denial” in Kubler-Ross’s famous grief cycle…Indeed, it would be a really good idea if someone could find a way to navigate Bill and Hillary past anger to the very next stage, which is something they can do very well: bargaining.
