How Hillary blew it

There's a post on the Register's election blog, Horserace'08, with links to other articles, that discusses some of what Hillary did wrong and Barack did right to bring about Obama's victory (at least we think she doesn't have anything else up her sleeve). The best (somewhat lengthy) treatment of what went wrong for her I've seen comes from Michelle Cottle over at New Republic. Overconfidence, not recognizing a "change" election, personnel problems (friends more than pros), too many themes, planning for a quick knockout and having no real plan when that didn't work, handling the press poorly, and on and on.
