John Stewart skewers Hillary and her campaign’s unending stream of nonsense:
Also, the Charlie Cook at the National Journal says what the rest of the media don’t want to admit:
At the end of the day, the popular vote for the Democratic nomination means nothing. I doubt that having won the popular vote in the 2000 general election is of much solace to Al Gore. Many a football team gains more yards than its opponent in a game yet loses on that important technicality called points.
The Clinton folks shouldn’t be faulted for the arguments they are making: In the big states that will determine the final outcome in November, she has done better than Obama, and she holds on to downscale white voters better than her opponent does. Beyond the fact that both assertions are true, I’d make the same arguments if I were in Clinton’s shoes, as would most of Obama’s strategists if they were working for Clinton.
But you can’t change how the game is played once it has begun. The Democrats have decided that the nominee will be determined by the number of delegates won, not by the popular vote, and that primaries held in direct violation of party rules (in this case, Florida’s and Michigan’s) don’t count. End of discussion.
Enough of this campaign already. It is over, Hillary has lost, and the only way she “wins” the nomination at this point is to completely destroy the party. The longer she stays in, the more delusional her supporters become and the more difficult it will be to rally around a candidate.
