I just saw the talking heads on Hardball state that one reason Hillary is staying in until the end is “in case something big happens to derail Obama.”
I simply do not understand this logic at all. If Hillary drops out of the race, and something major is unearthed about Obama that would derail his candidacy (a videotape surfaces of him doing cocaine off the nipple of a teenage boy while Imams chant the Koran and organize a gun running organization for Hamas and Al Qaeda), who the hell does she think the delegates are going to turn to- Edwards?
It is a simple no-brainer that “if something happened,” Hillary would be the party candidate. She doesn’t need to be in the race to get the nod in that situation.
Not saying she should get out, just saying that is a particularly silly argument.

Good point from the comments:
uhmm…this is the “talking heads” that are saying this shit. Not Clinton’s camp or even one of her swiney surrogates. Plus, her staying in the race is what democracy is all about. Even if she’s just a big fat loser. Please quit giving the media fodder to feed on.
