It's Time to Call it Quits (Hillary Clinton, by way of Iowahawk)

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.

Frankly, theres just no way around the stark mathematics of the situation: Inconvenience(Me) = 1.0 * Accident(You).

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.
The Hillary Road to the White House.

Who the hell are these so called political experts at nothing to tell any candidate to quit.
Convention used to the place to hash it out not coronations.
