I am so ready for this election to be over:
They wouldn’t yell if they weren’t weak. They would exhibit an air of quiet confidence.
And if they felt they could win FL and MI fair and square, they would have taken Carville’s $15 million in a heartbeat, and stomped Hillary in both states.
They didn’t, so Carville called their bluff* not only on whether they care about doing the right thing and making disenfranchised voters whole — Answer: they don’t — but on how confident the Obama campaign is that they’ve got the nomination in the bag. Answer: They’re not confident at all.
On the other hand, in Clinton land we are supposed to assume a sign of strength is losing the delegate count, losing the popular vote, trailing in the national polls, making up bogus arguments about disfranchisement, trying to get credit for two states that everyone agreed would not count (one of which Obama was not even on the ballot), running low on cash (again), and throwing every piece of dirt at Obama the NRO thinks is clever and witty while hoping late night calls to super-delegates can wrestle away the nomination. Talk about a sign of strength. Woo boy. Hillary is gonna wrap up this nomination any day now, isn’t she?
Who is it again who is yelling because they are weak?
We aren’t yelling because we think Obama is going to lose. I can’t think of a realistic scenario in which Hillary wins, and neither can her campaign staff. We are yelling because we think the Hillary campaign is gift-wrapping the November election for McCain by destroying the party in an attempt to gain that which she failed to earn through the normal voting process. This is over, and only Hillary, her campaign, and the Hillary supporters (who are beginning to resemble Red State diarists when discussing Iraq) don’t seem to get it.
