The Bhutto Effect On The Primary Race

Patrick Healy has another political memo in the New York Times today. He focusses on the impact that the Bhutto murder has had on the way various candidates are deporting themselves. "The Bhutto assassination is one of those rare things in a presidential race — an unscripted, unexpected moment that lays bare a candidate’s leadership qualities and geopolitical smarts."

The Hive's view is that the assassination and subsequent chaos in Pakistan will be a significant boost for both Clinton and McCain.
