406. I don't think she meant it the way some people are taking it ...
... because it makes no sense.

Logically, she wouldn't have to keep her campaign alive now if Obama was dead later. She would almost certainly be the nominee in that circumstance (though much more unlikely now).

If she had given any serious thought to the comment before uttering it, she would have realized that mentioning that tragedy in the current context would not help her campaign one bit and would likely drive a big fat nail in it.

I think (in her own mind) she was simply citing another example why primary campaigns aren't over till they're over.

And now hers is probably over, thanks in part to her ill-considered comment.


By the way, I voted for Obama in the Illinois primary.
