Cryptic

I have an intuition about one of the three candidates, Hillary, Obama and McCain. It's something that I think will become increasingly clear over time. But I'm torn between my egotistical desire to be able to say, "See? I told you so," on the one hand, and my reluctance to say something cruel and quite possibly wrong.

So, here's my solution. I'm emailing it to Annie Gottlieb. If I'm right, I get my "toldja so." If I'm wrong -- and one of you reminds me -- I'll 'fess up.

    Such is your reputation, Ruth Anne, that I spent 5 minutes looking for the pun. It's a flinch response. You've puntimidated me.

    Exactly like the waiter in "Casablanca" slapping all his pockets after the pickpocket bumps into him.
