Democrats on Ice

ABC News' Senior National Correspondent in the network's Washington bureau, Jake Tapper, reported today that "[Hillary Clinton's] securing the nomination is certainly possible - but it will require exercising the 'Tonya Harding option'" according to a Democratic Party official.

Tapper notes:
It implies that Clinton is so set on ensuring that Obama doesn't get the nomination, not only is she willing to take extra-ruthless steps, but in the end neither she nor Obama win the gold.

(In this metaphor, presumably, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., would be Oksana Baiul. Does that make former President Bill Clinton Jeff Gillooly?)
