Clinton has gotten a rap for being a flip-flopping fairweather Yankee fan.
But, today, after the Super Bowl, she proved her critics wrong.
There is no doubt she is a Yankees fan.
Because she can gloat like one.
Clinton made the hubristic remarks onboard the press plane.
Patrick Healy has the details.
Before taking off to New York late Sunday night, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton hailed the New York football Giants and made a few quips about Senator Barack Obama and the people of Massachusetts, who vote on Feb. 5.
Told that Mr. Obama was supporting the Patriots – the home team of his supporters Edward M. Kennedy, John Kerry, and Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, Mrs. Clinton grinned and said, “Hm, I wonder why.”
Okay, so far so good.
And reminded that she had two campaign stops in Massachusetts on Monday, she said: “They can redeem themselves on Tuesday – they can vote for a winner.“
Are you kidding me? She might as well have spiked the ball in Tom Brady’s face.
Because, you know, Tom Brady isn’t a winner.
Then again, neither is Derek Jeter.
