60. Hillary had more endorsements and nearly all of the delegates in 08 too!

Hillary was securing all of the early endorsements. She had the establishment behind her at the onset of the 2008 Democratic primary. She also had some union endorsements.

Her campaign continually reminded everyone that she had most of the delegates in her pocket too.

All of these things meant absolutely ZILCH. Obama won.

We know that Hillary has the blessing of the status-quo establishment. That's what we don't like about her.

Hillary gets the big donors and the big-name endorsements; Bernie gets the small donors and the $10 and $20 donations from middle-class Americans while Hillary sucks up some of that Super Pac money from her corporate fan club.

As far as the delegates go--They will vote for whomever the Democratic party nominates. The delegates will not go against the will of the party. No way. Again, the Hillary camp tried to suggest in 08 that the delegates were in her back pocket. Another intimidation tactic.

When I watch and listen to the Hillary campaign--and their tired old tactics (I'm inevitable! Your candidate can't win! She's unstoppable!) I feel like looking at leftovers. We've seen this before.

You'd think the Clinton camp would try something new for a change, instead of trying their old, worn-out tactics that were a loser's game in 08.
