No way Clinton will go away gracefully. We haven’t seen any real smear campagin yet. She will stick it out for ‘’ the people and the country’’. These people think like Tony Montana( the world is mine)

Obama is waiting to make the announcement to take the wind out of Hillary’s sails if she makes some gains today.

“She may have won Ohio, but the Super Delegates are shifting toward me.”

I’m not sure why so many Republican/conservative types are so eager to see Obama go down in flames right now.
Let them nominate him first, then let’s expose all of his scandal and nonsense.
Conventional wisdom has been that ‘the queen’ would be the easier one to beat...not true. He will be exposed as the complete lightweight that he is during a general campaign. her scandal and nonsense has been played out already, and like it or not, the mainstream media isn’t interested in her scandals anymore.

Many are holding back, waiting. They don't want to commit too early and find themselves on the down side of a scorned-Clinton presidency.

When the actual numbers show that Clinton cannot win, the endorsements will flood in.

I think Bill Richardson gave the warning last Sunday when he said that whoever comes out with a clear delegate lead after March 4th he should be the nominee. I think the democrat leadership will not allow a blood bath going for six weeks Pennsylvania primaries let alone having it goes all the way till the convention in late August. We shall see.

Correct.

Clinton is like Al Gore - wooden, but solid.
Obama is like Dukakis/Carter - a liberal who doesnt realize how extreme he is.

We almost lost to Gore.

Exactly. Clinton knows she will never be closer to her own presidency. Only 2 stand in her way. She has been working toward this for 2 decades.

She knows if she loses the Dem nomination, she will probably never get another chance. Even in 2012 other competitors could elbow her out, because the Clinton Machine will have been substantially damaged in this 2008 loss.

This is it, for her.

Yes, my feelings exactly. Let’s rid ourselves of the Hilly and Billy show, and if she decides on a presidential campaign instead of a senate campaign in 2012, let’s do it again!

I’m not entirely convinced that McCain can’t beat Obama, as others think.

I think McCain can and will beat Obama. I am not convinced he can beat Hillary.

One can see a Clinton-Obama ticket as more likely than an Obama-Clinton ticket. And if it is the former, it will be much harder to stop.

Obama needs to be the nominee, so the Clintons are left out in the cold to gum up the works.

Obama knows how dangerous it would be to have Hillary at the bottom of the ticket (which is why it would not happen). His wife has said she is scared of the Clintons.

Think Bob Torricelli. They will trash Obama until he is unelectable to the general public and losing to McCain in all the polls, then she steps in to save the day.

Folks by hook or by crook Hillary is going to get the nomination. The Clinton’s will use every trick in the book. She has lived her whole life for this moment and she is not going to let this opportunity slip away.

I’d like to see hillary squeak out a win in Ohio and lose in Texas; then have 50 Superdelegates announce for Obama.

We can then sit back and watch hillary go “scorched earth” as she destroys the Democrat Party over the next few months as she desperately grasps at the nomination.

Hopefully there will be election fraud exposed and maybe hillary will take the DNC or a State Party organization all the way to the Supreme Court to get her way.

One can only dream...

Super delegate =

1. Democrat method to disenfranchise the voters in selecting a candidate. All honest democrats should be outraged.

2. Democrat method to extract patronage jobs and perks from candidate for a (super) vote. I have a friend that needs a job Hussein / Hill, how bad do you want my vote.

Screw the voters we super delegates are in control. All honest democrats should be outraged.

And if she does the black community will not sit by and let her disenfranchise the Messiah from seeking the golden thrown.

Why do you think Hillary has been hinting about a deal with Barack Hussein Obama. (Barack could be her running mate.)
