    you're right, Ken, she is finished. Don't think anyone saw this happening a year ago!

    It couldn't happen to a nicer woman... :laugh:

    I thought I knew a little about politics :)

    4 years ago there was not doubt that Hillary was in. A few months ago I thought Obama was a sure thing.

    After Pennsylvania I would have put money on a Hillary/Obama ticket.

    Now I agree Ken - Hillary is washed up and Obama will select a middle of the road experienced running mate.

    If Obama does not win, which I don't think he can against McCain, Hillary will be back strong in '12.


    Course, like I said - I used to think I knew a little about politics :).

    That depends on one's definition of "soon". By one month from today there will no longer be a Clinton for President campaign ongoing.

    I know what you mean. It just shows, to use a football analogy, that if a team thinks it can just throw its helmet on the field and win, that it doesn't always happen that way.

    Senator Clinton should have won this race; however, she didn't take the threat of Senator Obama's campaign seriously enough as 2007 wound down. She let too many caucuses and smaller primaries go by the wayside. Senator Obama had a better ground game and marshalled his resources better.

    As far as the general election goes, anyone who bets money on either Senator Obama or Senator McCain winning is a much braver person with his/her money than I am.

    I think that Senator Obama will win since the Democrats are shaping up to have significant gains in the House and Senate on November 4. We may have the reverse coattails effect - the House and Senate candidates will pull the presidential candidate to victory instead of vice versa.

    Theres more to Obama then meets the eye, and I don't think it's good. Too many small things, that don't add up well.
    I don't want either of them for president, but he scares me.
    After reading his wife's speech, I believe they agree with their pastor. This means trouble.

    To use another "football analogy" Obama is the beneficairy of the "McNabb-Limbuagh syndrome". The liberal media are so anxious to see a black (liberal) president that they are hyping up a mediocre presidential candidate just like they hyped up a mediocre quarterback.

    All one had to do is see the look on Bill Clinton's face last night during Senator Clinton's speech to know that the Clinton camp realizes that the race is over for all practical purposes.

    All that is left is to negotiate a smooth way for her to exit the race after May 20.

    I believe this pretty much sums it up. She may hang on for a while longer, but any hope she had of winning the nomination is over.

    If a Democrat wins in November, what difference does it make which of the two gets the nomination? They are both the same.

    Gary Hart had the nomination wrapped up, or so everyone thought. If another Reverend Wright or Bill Ayers crawls out of his closet, before the convention and the super delegates vote, Barack Hussien Obama could be toast. I think Hillary is waiting around to see if the media will begin to treat him like a candidate who's life and politics need to be scrutinized instead of a rock star who gets a free pass.
    Can anybody on the BB name any meaningful legislation that he has introduced as Senator, yet his mantra is change. Senator's have alot of power. What has he changed or even sought to change while he's been in the Senate. What did he accomplish in Illinois? What has he accomplished in Washington. He has looks, oratory skills, and charisma, beyond that not much else.

    You are very right which is why the super delegates won't step in and put an end to this... They fear there may be more skeletons yet to be unmasked. Like with this war, no one wants to be the one to later say, "I supported him" if an even uglier moster appears...

    "As far as I can calculate it, though, Mrs Clinton can carry all the next five states AND Puerto Rico and still not get an arithmetical majority. Nonetheless, she continues to act as if she knows something that the rest of us do not. And I can tell you that it spooks the Obama campaign."

    Waste of money

    It seems like a huge waste of money for her to continue.....so why is she doing it?

    In typical Clinton style, she is doing it cause she can.
