Andy Ihnatko, despite his protestations, is the #1 most-beloved industry figure, at least in my book. I’ve been a big fan of his since his days adorning the back page of MacUser ca. 1992.
In a fairly serious and non-writing-about-technology turn, he completely nails what has happened to the Hillary Clinton campaign: she has become a vanity publisher. But pumping $6.4 million of her own money into her campaign, she has become the equivalent of a vanity publisher. There aren’t enough people in the world who are willing to support her book (campaign), so she’s using her own money to publish it (keep it going).
Seriously. If she can muster enough monetary support to keep the campaign going, it means that not enough people want her to be President. I believed it before I read Andy’s article, but I see even more clearly now just how pathetic she’s become.
Senator Clinton, please bow out gracefully now and help us ensure that Senator Obama becomes the next President of the United States. And Senator Obama: Senator Clinton would make a kick-ass Vice President.
