Hillary's 9.2% Win - Hardly A Landslide

Clinton is claiming a 10% lead in Pennsylvania, and says the tide is turning. Well to be accurate the lead was 9.2% and considering she was ahead by 20 points in the polls a couple of weeks ago, it sounds like the tide may be going out.

OK, to be fair I am an Obama supporter, and I didn’t figure he would win Pennsylvania, however I was hoping that Clinton’s margin would be just a little smaller so she would give up her imitation of Don Quixote and do the party a favor. Instead she feels the wind in her sails and vows to continue.

Time for a reality check. Without some kind of back-room deal with the Super-delegates or a massive scandal by seating the Michigan and Florida delegates, she is toast. She obviously has no love for the party and figures if she can’t have the nomination than no Democrat should. Her continued attacks have even drawn the ire of the New York Times.

Note to Hillary,

You ran a good race until recently and now you are starting to sound like a typical Washington political operative. You not only went negative, but you have been trying to even throw the specter of Osama Bin Laden at the Obama camp. You are willing to do anything to get the nomination and in that scramble, you will not only loose the nomination but you just might lose the election for any Democrat at a time when our country desperately needs it.

Concede the race. Be gracious and act like a Democrat who really wants to see change. Otherwise you will just be another example of “how the Democrats end up shooting themselves in the foot”. It’s time to end this charade.
