A number of people are looking for meaningful symbolism in the Kentucky Derby death of a horse – a filly names Eight Belles – to which Hillary Clinton had emotionally committed herself and picked to win. The horse finished second, then collapsed with two broken ankles and had to be destroyed.

I wonder if Hillary might try to rid herself of any stigma this event might hold for her campaign, perhaps borrowing the critical line from the movie “The Sting”: “Win? I said ‘place’!”
