For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: Hillary bet on the horse that had to be put down at the Kentucky Derby Saturday (paragraph breaks removed, emphasis added):
Showing a sisterhood with the female horse, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., during a trip to Louisville this week had said she was going to bet on Eight Belles to win, place, and show. ABC News' Karen Travers reports that Clinton told supporters in Jeffersonville, Ind., earlier this week, "I hope that everybody will go to the derby on Saturday and place just a little money on the filly for me. I won’t be able to be there this year -- my daughter is going to be there and so she has strict instructions to bet on Eight Belles." Travers also points out that Eight Belles' trainer, Larry Jones, returned the love. "It looks like it could be the year for the girls," he said.
Is this a macabre irony given how poorly things have gone this year for the woman that would be president as well as Katie Couric, or in very bad taste to bring up?
