So last March Hillary Clinton's campaign said the senator would be visiting Medford. But the days and weeks passed by and her campaign flacks insisted that she was coming, while refusing to give any details.

Then Hillary announced an Oregon visit, and Medford wasn't on the schedule. We'd been had.

But then on Saturday we received a press release that Hillary would be in Oregon on May 8th and 9th. Then a phone call confirmed she would be in our neck of the woods on Thursday night. Unlike the false start in March, Clinton's people actually offered up details of the visit. We knew the when, the where, and how.

Then came Tuesday's primaries in Indiana and North Carolina. By the end of the night, most commentators were writing Hillary's political obit. She's cancelled all her public appearances on Wednesday, and there's a decent chance her presidential campaign is through. No word on her Thursday appearances, but I'd say there's a good chance we'll be stood up again.

Oh, why can't the primary process last just a few weeks longer? We've waited our turn, and now they might call off the game before we get to play ball. Dang.

Well, once the general election starts, we should see some political action. We are the very hinge on what will likely be a swing state this year. That's a pretty good place to be if you're a reporter.
