Looking at the delegate math, it is now impossible for Hillary Clinton to win the nomination without taking a significant majority of superdelegates. Even with lopsided wins in the remaining primaries and caucuses, it is virtually impossible to overtake Obama's pledged delegate lead. If this is the case, a Hillary victory in convention will be a disaster for the Democratic Party. Can you imagine Hillary trying to draw any support from the Democratic African-American voters after party insiders deciding against their candidate who won the majority of primaries and caucuses?
To put it simply, for a Democratic Presidential victory in 2008, Hillary must concede the election. And there is no sign that she is willing to do that. And every attack she makes against Obama is just giving the Republicans a jump-start to what will be coming from the "Republican noise machine." I believe it is time for party insiders to approach Hillary and explain the situation. Would she rather have John McCain or Barak Obama? That is really the choice Hillary has to make. Because her as President at this point is statistically virtually impossible. And with every gasp Hillary makes in this impossible quest, it makes her look less and less like the stateswoman she wants to be, and more the politician so many fear she is.
Hillary made a good, impressive run at the Presidential nomination. She showed a passion that few people, myself included, thought that she possessed and could show the voters. She came to debates well prepared, and I believe she has run a good campaign that she and her supporters can be proud of. But the game is up. Do we want Barak Obama, or John McCain? A vote for Hillary at this point is a vote for John McCain.
