How blessed we are to have two primaries where the leading candidates hate each other. The spin here from Axelrod is that the Messiah couldn’t bear to see poor Hillary humiliated by having to make nice with Teddy in his presence. Really? Check out the photo Drudge is leading with. See that look on Obama’s face? We all know it. We’ve all worn it a thousand times. That’s pure, straight Hillary hate, baby. About 120 proof, I’d say. The eyewitness account:

As Clinton approached, Kennedy made sure to make eye contact and indicated he wanted to shake her hand. Clinton leaned towards Kennedy over a row of seats and Kennedy leaned in towards her. They shook hands.

Obama stood icily staring at Clinton during this, then turned his back and stepped a few feet away. Kennedy may’ve wanted to make peace with Clinton but Obama clearly wanted no part of that.

Anyone seen video of the fateful moment? There’s nothing on YouTube or RedLasso and Scarborough doesn’t have it here so I’m guessing it doesn’t exist. Tip me if you spot it. I’m curious.

Here’s something a little friendlier to warm the cockles of the organ of your choice.
