Throughout his report in The New York Times, Patrick Healy refers to Mrs. Palin, the mother of five married to “the First Dude,” as Ms. Palin, while the wife of former president Bill Clinton, formerly “Hillary Rodham,” is Mrs. Clinton.
"Friends of Mrs. Clinton, meanwhile, say she is the Obama campaign’s greatest weapon in pointing out Democrats’ differences with Ms. Palin and Mr. McCain."
Sen. Barack Obama is referred to throughout as “Mr.”
Ms. Healy expects a catfight among Ms. Palin and Mrs. Clinton.
Bring it on.
