That's Missus Sen. Clinton to you

The New York Times gets comfortable with Hillary.

Anyone else catch the teaser headline on the front page of Sunday's New York Times Week in Review? It directed readers to Patrick Healy's piece about the New York-centric fantasy of a Rudy Giuliani-Hillary Clinton presidential race? It read: "Voters Just Might Pit the Mayor Against the Missus. Then What?"

"The Missus"! Har! That's adorable!

Seriously, a Broadsheet reward to any New York Times editor who dares to call Sen. Hillary Clinton "the Missus" to her face.
