Hillary Drop Out?
Why Even Ask?
Why are Olberman and others even asking the question? This is as tight a race as we’ve seen in years.
From Jerome Armstrong at MYDD, the Political Blogfather of us all, this morning: The Popular Vote & MI:
Obama is ahead 1795-1786, with the 55 uncommitted, 31 for Edwards, 408 remaining delegates, and 340 remaining super delegates. A 9 delegate difference with over 800 to go shows the closeness of this contest. Bowers projects it out further and comes up with a 1,890 Obama vs 1,845 non-Obama total, and 680 other delegates.
Soon the media must begin to discuss the politically incorrect issue of ‘electability’. It’s been the dirty, unspoken word of this cycle.
Yet all Democrats must begin to remember the Prime Directive of all politics:
First, Get Elected! (h/t to Taylor Marsh)
