Top Democrats now want to shout,
“Oh Hillary, please just get out!”
But Hillary and Bill still say,
“Get out? Give up? Slink off? No way.”

What’s left? To wound Barack, thus drain
His numbers vis-à-vis McCain,
Then say, “He’s eloquent and all,
But damaged. He can’t win this fall.”

Republicans seemed sunk before–
A grim economy, the war.
But now the Democrats make news:
They’ve figured out a way to lose.
