Well, it looks like the beginning of the end for Senator Clinton now that Indiana voters gave Barack Obama a relatively strong show of support and North Carolina voters gave him an unqualified show of support. This translates into a virtually unwinnable contest for delegates for Clinton, and this blog is respectfully asking her to withdraw.
We realize that some people have been asking her to withdraw since January, but as Obama gains more and more committed delegates, some have even described him as the presumptive nominee.
So it's time, Senator Clinton. Time to be a team player, and put your resources and your support behind the Democratic challenger to a third Bush term, instead of pouring money down the drain that could be used to turn the undecideds away from the dark side. (Just kidding. I know at least two of my six regular readers are Republicans, and I totally respect that.)
I also think it's ridiculous that Rush Limbaugh thinks so highly of himself that he thinks it's a good idea to use his infamy to influence the outcome of the Democratic primary in Indiana by urging Republicans to vote for Hillary. Operation Chaos, he calls it. Here's an interesting video clip where he wildly exaggerates his own influence and success, even though Obama performed significantly better in Indiana than predicted, and the Republicans who did vote in the Democratic primary were fairly evenly divided between Clinton and Obama. Whatever.
And if you keep watching the clip, you'll see a colorful exchange between a Republican strategist, Cheri Jacobus, and a Democratic strategist, Keith Boykin. If you're enjoying this combative and histrionic presidential election year as much as I am, it will raise your heart-rate.
Ironically, I got an email yesterday from Cheri Jacobus' office asking for my resume and writing samples. I wonder if it counts against me that this year, at least, I'm voting for a Dem.
