So many stories, so little timeSo here's a smattering. Once upon a time, Hillary said, "Obama is a babyyyy, Obama is a babyyyy. Neener nanner, lalala." Not really, but that's what Big News is trying to make out of Hill's comments.

Ravenel also has stepped down as state campaign chairman for Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani.Oh yeah.
