19. Yah, sometimes Keith goes a little far....
I watch him regularly and he can be harsh on Hillary. I really thought the heel dragging thing last night was uncalled for. But I am fairly confident that were the roles reversed, Obama would be out of the race by now. And if he did not, I can only imagine the journalistic beat down he would endure - equal to or more severe than the one that Hillary has to face because he's a newbie. She's got some clout, still.

My brother came up with a great idea. He thinks that, for the good of the Democratic party, Obama should withdraw and watch the uproar and outrage that would ensue. I'm not in favor of that tactic. I think it would backfire badly.
