Once upon a time, there was little doubt as to the Post's opinion of Hillary Clinton. But questions arose when the Clintons reached their détente with Rupert Murdoch last year, and now, well, things are clear. This morning, the tabloid learned that Mrs. Clinton is a reader — and, better yet, a nonreader of the Daily News. "Like hundreds of thousands of other discerning New Yorkers," gushed "Page Six" in reporting the news, "White House front-runner Sen. Hillary Clinton buys The Post." It's not just the gleeful promotion of Hillary to the front-runner status that made us smile. And it's not just the item's headline ("The Right Choice," which, placed over a decent photo, pretty much makes a free campaign poster). It's mostly this: Can you believe they're finally calling her a New Yorker?
