Want to hear something scary and destructive? This article from boston.com spells it out...
Hillary Clinton will take the Democratic nomination even if she does not win the popular vote, but persuades enough superdelegates to vote for her at the convention, her campaign advisers say. . . Clinton will not concede the race to Obama if he wins a greater number of pledged delegates by the end of the primary season, and will count on the 796 elected officials and party bigwigs to put her over the top, if necessary. . . "We are interested in acquiring delegates, period,''. . . ""whoever the nominee is, the party will come together behind that nominee. . ."
Slash and burn politics. Wow. She really is like Joe Lieberman. They're *both* McCain supporters.
I just hope that a lot of the superdelegates turn against her for this attitude. I suspect that Howard Dean isn't going to be too thrilled. I suspect that the Democratic Party wants this race over with if Texas and Ohio aren't decisive victories for Hillary.
In any event, she's asking for a permanent vacation to the political wilderness for that kind of attitude.
... and to make things even uglier, this quote from Mark Penn, her campaign pollster:
"Could we possibly have a nominee who hasn't won any of the significant states -- outside of Illinois? That raises some serious questions about Sen. Obama.”
Way to insult 200,000,000 Americans, you overpriced, Roveian turdblossom.
