Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by over 300,000 votes. Barack Obama has 130 more pledged delegates.
POPULAR VOTE (all primaries and caucuses)
Hillary Clinton: 17,785,009
Barack Obama: 17,479,990
Barack Obama: 1766.5
Hillary Clinton: 1639.5
And, on that basis, Hillary is reported “by informed sources” to be planning to drop out of the race and concede on Friday or Saturday.
The mystery is why “pledged delegates” are assumed to be set in stone.
Suppose Patrick Fitzgerald follows up his recent conviction of prominent Obama supporter (and real estate subsidizer) Antoin Rezko with a pre-August indictment of B. Hussein himself?
Suppose the Michelle Obama “Whitey” tape is produced pre-August, and provokes scrutiny revealing intimate ties on the part of the media’s preferred candidate to Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam?
Barack Obama has been a national figure for a very short time, his relatively obscure career in Illinois politics is only now gradually becoming known, and there is a real possibility that the microscopic and intense attention inevitable in a presidential campaign might any day pop open one of his personal closet doors revealing a deal-breaking skeleton.
Short-circuiting the convention process and conducting a media-led instant coronation doubtless gratifies the infantile democrat party base, which can happily worship, and fantasize over the New Age and Socialist Utopia soon to be created by the arrival of their redeemer and god/king, but wasn’t the whole idea of having superdelegates supposed to be preventing these kinds of democrat party swoons? Weren’t superdelegates supposed to be wiser, more politically astute party leaders who would stop the crazies from charging over the cliff and nominating George McGovern II?
So here we are, and they’re apparently ready to line up behind the most leftwing democrat in the Senate, a candidate with no record of meaningful political accomplishment beyond miraculously getting elected to the Senate, who lost the popular vote in the democrat party primaries, and who already seems to have a great deal of disadvantageous personal baggage against a war hero with strong cross-party-lines appeal. Those democrats obviously have a death wish.
Conventional Liberal Republican versus wacky leftwing democrat who opposes national defense, it’s 1972 all over again. Quick, somebody hand B. Hussein a shovel, he’s going to need it to dig himself out from underneath the landslide come November.
And it’s also a bit like 1964 all over again. Barry Goldwater was characterized as a wacky rightwinger by all of the MSM. But, boy, did it feel good to nominate someone who was a true conservative for a change. It felt so good, damn the election probabilities. We were on a Mission from God. Obama is the first seemingly viable candidate of the hard left (Howard Dean got zapped prematurely). It’s got to feel really good deep down inside your left kidney. Theoretically, the parallels should play out, but their are two important differences: 1) The more moderate candidate has a party label that is wildly stigmatized (often for good reason) and 2) The MSM will do everything in its considerable power to keep the whacky fringe candidate from being tagged that way.
