It’s Wednesday.  The big news all day was how Hillary Clinton was going to withdraw her nomination during the role call vote and make Barak Obama’s nomination for president unanimous.  And there’s rampant speculation on how happily or unhappily she’s going along with it.  (From Wednesday’s Sun-Times: “New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney prefaced her introduction of Hillary to the “Women Count” group by stating: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t support women.”)

A little after 7pm, I turned on my TV in Chicago (Obama HQ).  What do I see?  On WMEU (MeToo), a station that shows a lot of classic TV shows, sort of like TVLand, is showing a movie I’d never heard of: “Queen Bee.”
