If Clinton doesn't like the smaller, non-Democratic states, she should forgo those delegates.
I mean, if these states don't matter, than why does she accept any of the delegates from those states? Can't have it both ways, Hill, so if they don't count, let's take those delegates away from her total.

Arizona: McCain ain't losing his home state, so they don't count, right? Sorry Hill, remove your 31 delegates from your total.

Alaska: Not happening for either candidate, she lost, but since it doesn't count, you shouldn't get the 4 delegates you were awarded.

American Samoa: Can't vote in the general, so sorry, no delegates for you. Subtract 2 from her total.

Alabama: Nope, sorry Hill, Alabama -- you say -- won't go Democratic. No 25 delegates for you.

Idaho: Not going to happen for the Democrats, so she shouldn't get the 3 she was awarded.

Kansas: Possible, not likely. No 9 delegates for you.

North Dakota: Na', so why should you count the 5 delegates you won?

Oklahoma: In her dreams! This was a state she won, but under her own logic, it doesn't count. So take those 24 out of there.

Tennessee: You can hope, but it isn't going to happen. Another state she won the Democrats aren't likely to carry. Hell, even Gore couldn't carry his home state. Remove the 40 delegates she won from Tennessee.

Utah: Won't ever vote Democratic, so yeah, Hill, you don't get the 9 delegates you won there.

Nebraska: I'd like to see it go blue, but it won't. So those 8 delegates she was given, even in a loss? Not hers now.

Virginia: We're told it doesn't count, right? So no 29 delegates for Clinton!

Texas: C'mon, we can all admit there is no chance in hell a Democrat wins Texas. So Clinton's Tuesday prize shouldn't count. No 65 delegates from the primary and no 29 from the caucus.

Wyoming: We're told Wyoming doesn't count, so there ya' go. No 5 delegates for Clinton.

South Carolina: I hope Obama can make it competitive, but I don't see it. Clinton doesn't get 12 of their delegates.

If you add it up, Clinton loses 300 delegates from the states, by her own definition, that do not count. That takes her total pledged delegates from 1,230 to 930.

It's only fair Clinton stay consistent on this. If she doesn't think a state matters, why should she take their delegates?

2. Going by voter turnout....
Repubs would win only 4 states. A Democratic win in TN is not likely.

PS.. I live in TN. If by chance we did win here, color me surprised.
