Wasn't Obama saying, a few weeks ago, that Hillary would win Pennsylvania, he'd win North Carolina, and Indiana would be the tiebreaker?

Or am I misremembering.

A co-worker and devout Democrat thinks HRC should stay in it till the end in order to provide the remaining states the opportunity to vote in this 'historical primary'.

I don't question the historical aspect but I do question if that is worth prolonging the bitterness within the Party.

Not that I give a crap or anything.

Maybe there's an inflatable dog under the newspaper.

Back when Kennedy got his floor fight in 1980 behind by 750 delegates [and others way farther behind than 150 as Hillary is] it was covered by real journalists, like Brokaw, Kronkite, or Brinkley who were smart and careful and would enjoy the fun as they described the happenings of democracy on the floor and what was going on backstage. Today, it would be covered by red-faced souless hack gasbags like Russert, Matthews, and Blitzer who would gleefully tell us how divisive, destructive and discombobulated the entire process would be, and invent their preferred storylines up as they go. That's the difference in today's political discourse. There are record turnouts across the country entering the political process to have their voices heard, and all we hard is how destructive and harrowing it is. It's seriously, seriously fucked up.

By the way, it turns out that "disenfranchised nun" story from Indiana was bogus.

Here is a moving letter from James Taranto of the WSJ's Best of the Web to Hillary.

Hey, garage--

But isn't part of the fun of the continuing process (and, hey, I think everyone oughtta stay in for all 50+ primaries in both parties) the fact that it can be all sensationalized? At least as far as the media is concerned?

Hillary lost the spin game.

I just saw this for the first time and found it very funny but as is often the case, I may be the last person on the internet to have seen it.
