Trippi on Losing It

The best line of the night has to go to Joe Trippi, the Edwards advisor who used to work for Howard Dean.

When asked if Hillary Clinton’s venting about change had reached an anger level approximate to the Dean scream, he said this:

“I think tonight, change won, and the status quo lost it.”

That got a good laugh out of the reporters, who nevertheless pressed him as to whether the two moments were comparable. Finally, after some ducking, he said, “That’s as close as you get,” And, “It seemed really angry to me.”
