Gracious Hillary Leaves Romney Still Looking for Any Way to Be Taken Seriously

Daily Kos: Hillary: Romney's ads a 'waste of money': "“I am out of politics, and I haven’t seen any of the ads that you’re talking about,” Clinton said, who has appeared in two Romney ads thus far. “But I have to say it’s a waste of money. Everybody knows I ran against President Obama in 2008, that’s hardly news. Everybody knows we ran a hard fought campaign and he won. And I have been honored to serve as his secretary of state.”"

Romney may have this unpopularity problem. And we may be victims of his billion dollar effort to achieve at least a little adoration somewhere. But he sure didn't get it from Hillary after quoting her shame on Barack outburst from 2008. No one forgets what 2008 was and the whole world now admires Hillary more than almost anyone. So when she puts Mitt in his place, that cannot feel good. And Mitt's calendar doesn't look appealing. He is about to be linked with his elitist London Olympics dancing horses who cost more to maintain than a village of your choice. And then he is sure to gaffe when he hits Israel minus any foreign policy experience. And when he comes back, he will have missed a few weeks of continued outcry over his cop impersonations, his relationship with Paul Singer and the newest criminal on the block Sheldon Adelson, his tax returns and the Lord knows what else. Maybe he really wants pity. But it's hard to feel when you consider that the only way he can win is to hoodwink us all. That is not a way to win sympathy.

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …
