Iowahawk Guest Opinion
by Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
From the earliest days of the campaign, the race for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination has been a hard fought, neck-and-neck struggle. But now, as the race enters its final stretch, it has become increasingly obvious that the eventual outcome is no longer in doubt. With a difficult general election looming, Democrats need to put our family squabbles aside and unite behind the eventual nominee. And so, in the interest of Party unity, and his own health, I am calling on Senator Obama to gracefully accept defeat.
First, let me congratulate Senator Obama and his staff for running a tough campaign. He has been a worthy sparring partner, and one I would have once been happy to consider for my vice presidential undercard, had he not been a constant pain in my ass for the last six months. But even Senator Obama must know at this point that, even if he somehow pulls off a miracle by sweeping the remaining primaries and locking up all the contested superdelegates, he simply cannot escape the inevitable mysterious accident that will clear the Democratic nomination for Yours Truly.

A BTT for the ‘Hawk. It isn’t too late for Her Heinous to begin gradually replacing the superdelegates with pod people. Watch for them - their vacant expression, their contrived passion, their shambling, zombified walk, their mindless repetition of the same empty phrases...it’s a pretty fiendish plot, because nobody will be able to tell them from real Democrats.
