That Clinton suppnrters still insist that there candidate deserves the nomination more than Obama

Obama continues to blow her out in purple states and deep blue states while she wins a close race in one purple state and has one won single race by a substantial magin...Itsy bitsy Rhode Island . WHile Obama picks up blow out wins in in Wisconsin Maryland and Virginia and Louisiana and Colorado and Washington and Texas.

I will never say she should not continue to press her case. but at a point this fraticidal obsession and kitchen sink approach is going to make her and her supporters look like whiny losers.

5. They are playing to the media now, and the media wants
them to fight to the death. He needs to stay out of this mess.

6. Jeez....
At least speak the truth...

Hillary won the Texas Primary by 100,000 votes, not a blowout, but not that close either...

Obama won the Texas caucus by a 56% to 44% total, that was a near blowout...

Hillary won Ohio 54% to 44%, that is a near blowout...

So please get your facts straught...

It only makes your argument weaker when you depend on spurious claims...

15. It actually is pretty simple....The purpose of process is to win Delegates!!!
That is all that matter, Popular votyee wina only give you PR and momntum. But is is pretty worthless if you do not get wins and more delegates on a go-dorward basis isn't it. You can laugh all you want... but the view thatClinton is more popular... more electableis certainly myopic on it best day and purely foolishon the last day.

You can piss and moan about the system all you want... but the candidate is not connecting with the voters in a way that secures the nomination.


You can blame Obama.. You can blame Sexism, You can blame the MSM, you can claim the blogs. The real blame has to be placed with the candidate herself. She apparently is not able to trump any of the usual suspects.

13. And he is coming back from Clinton's leads in the polls
She was supposed to take Texas and Ohio by double digit margins.

She barely made that in Ohio and she lost Texas.

17. Obama agrees. His statement about it.
"Obama said recently he would be facing pressure to drop out if he had lost as many contests as Clinton has.

"Look, I'm the challenger. I'm the upstart. I'm the insurgent," he said. "She's the champ. She's part of the Democratic network in Washington and, you know, if you're the titleholder, then you don't lose it on points. You've got to be knocked out."
