Subtle as a Clownshow

At the Clinton victory celebration in the Egyptian Room of a Shriner's Temple in downtown Indianapolis, a crowd of maybe 400, including many ringers from Washington, collectively averted their eyes when the giant TV screen, tuned to CNN, showed a triumphant Obama in North Carolina. The underdog candidate had obviously hoped for Hoosier clarity when she took her primary-night star turn, but she had to settle for talking vaguely about "coming from behind" as the TV screens showed her with an ever narrowing 52-48 percent lead in the Indiana returns -- numbers that would continue to dwindle.

You can visit the Murat Shrine Temple at 510 N New Jersey St, Indianapolis, IN 46204. Call ahead at (317) 635-2433.
