A Bad Sign?

Before the Kentucky Derby, Hillary Clinton drew parallels between herself and Eight Belles, a filly that was entered in the Kentucky Derby. Well, how does that comparison hold up now?
Sadly -- after finishing second in the Kentucky Derby yesterday -- Eight Belles broke her front ankles in the race and was euthanized shortly thereafter.
I would like to see Clinton retired after this race (at least from presidential politics), but I hope it doesn't quite happen in that fashion.

UPDATE: A blistering, thought-provoking denunciation of horse racing (and the horse deaths it leads to) is up at CBS Sportsline.
