    The real message of Tuesday’s primaries is not that Hillary won. It’s that she didn’t win by enough.
    The race is over.

    The results are already clear. Obama will go to the Democratic Convention with a lead of between 100 and 200 elected delegates. The remaining question is: What will the superdelegates do then? But is that really a question? Will the leaders of the Democratic Party be complicit in its destruction? Will they really kindle a civil war by denying the nomination to the man who won the most elected delegates? No way. They well understand that to do so would be to throw away the party’s chances of victory and to stigmatize it among African-Americans and young people for the rest of their lives. The Democratic Party took 20 years to recover from the traumas of 1968 and it is not about to trigger a similar bloodletting this year.

    I think that a deal will be worked out well before the convention, I think even before the Pennsylvania primary.

    Obama is ahead in Wyoming today and should easily win Mississippi Tuesday.

    Could Hillary be expecting that the super delegates would vote her in anyway?

    The Dem ticket will either be Obama/Clinton or Clinton/Obama. Either way, it's over.

    It is way to early to know it will be that ticket. Obama would be crazy to select her as his VP.

    I don't think so. I think that would be a mistake. Both of these candidates would be setting a new precedent as President of the U.S. I think the Democrats should and will pick a more "usual" VP candidate to moderate the impact on the electorate.

    If Obama has Clinton as his running mate, he'd do well to watch his back.

    Ed's plan to assure a Democratic Victory:

    Obama/McLain ticket

    Unbeatable

    But I haven't seen to many people snapping to when I yell 'Atention!" :tear:

    I really hope that John McCain wins.
    That way, a Republican will take the blame for the economic meltdown that the Republicans are causing.

    The two major parties are coalitions with varying viewpoints. That is why they are major parties compared to minor parties that only hold to one viewpoint - e.g., Libertarian Party, Green Party.

    You probably meant to say "Only if you think McCain is a true conservative. :saint:"
