Rupert Murdoch Disses Shillary

Remember a few years ago when Rupert Murdoch made nice with Hillary:

(CBS) To call them a political odd couple would be a rash understatement. Conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch will host a fundraiser for liberal New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, the Financial Times reports.

The mating ritual of the unlikely allies has been under way for months. Clinton set political tongues to wagging last month by attending a Washington party celebrating the 10th anniversary of Fox News, the cable news channel owned by Murdoch.

The Financial Times quoted one unnamed source as describing the Clinton-Murdoch connection in this way: "They have a respectful and cordial relationship.
Well, it seems that little kissy-kissy affair is over as the American flagship of the Murdoch empire--the NY Post--came out today and endorsed Barack Obama:

We urge them to choose Obama - an untried candidate, to be sure, but preferable to the junior senator from New York.

Obama represents a fresh start.

His opponent, and her husband, stand for déjà vu all over again - a return to the opportunistic, scandal-scarred, morally muddled years of the almost infinitely self-indulgent Clinton co-presidency.

Does America really want to go through all that once again? It will - if Sen. Clinton becomes president.
It just looks bad when the best-selling paper in America's largest city, which is the "home" of a candidate doesn't even endorse her.
