Who would have thought that the Republican party would be the one to boast a female on the ticket in 2008? It was Hillary's year, after all. But who would have thought that she would have lost it - we can argue about the combination of occurrences that doomed her chances - in early days?

Let's wait and see what they pull out of their hats.
