Safire still blinded by Hillary

In a blog entry praising Safire’s column in today’s Times, Kaus nonetheless notes that Safire’s main thesis is “insane.”
I also couldn’t help noting that his Hillary-paranoia has taken a new turn. He now says that the Clitonistas were hoping for a Dean debacle to clear the way for Hillary in 2008, but didn’t he used to think that they had drafted Clark as some kind of a placeholder?
How can he hold so many inconsistent beliefs in his head at the same time? I guess as long as he can ascribe perverse Machiavellian motives to his favorite bêtes noires, he’s happy.
