Bummer. I want her to hang on at least until the convention, just to keep stoking the resentments and bitterness between her band of hags and Barack Hussein Obama’s delusional worshippers.

If she really does give up now, there will probably be enough time for the two sides to kiss and make up before November.

Hitlery may not actually concede, but Obama has now clinched the nomination based on the AP tally of Super-delegates.

Clinton Inc. has been ground into powder.

McCain can and will defeat Obama. He never had a chance against Hitlery.

The rats managed to nominate an unelectable candidate.

I think she’s still not going to let Obama have tonite due to her sick sociopathic tendencies.

She’ll keep hanging in until she can get something out of it. Money, position, whatever. The hag.

Watching the lowlife gutter-rat Clintons' slow-motion meltdown as their old friends have turned on them over the last several weeks has almost made it worth watching this whole tedious drama unfold. It couldn't happen to a nicer "couple".

It really is true that what comes around, goes around.

People have been saying that for some time. They are dead wrong. Obama is a bumbling buffoon, a la Jimmah Carter. Hillary! is the second coming of Adolf Hitler/Joseph Stalin.

Hillary! is ruthless, cunning, vindictive and will do anything to accomplish her agenda.

Take away Obama's speech writers and you have nothing.

No to mention, McCain will sweep away Obama in November.

I see it the other way around. McCain had a chance against Hillary, against Obama? No.

There is no way that Obama can make up for almost guaranteed losses in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Hitlery would have carried all three, and thus the Presidency.

“Effectively clinching” is not clinching, which requires attaining a prescribed number of pledged delegates. Until the convention the superdelegates are free to change their minds as often as they like.

Don’t count “The Witch” out since her strategy is to hang herself around Obama’s neck as VP.

Beyond that, Obama’s mother is white so doesn’t that accurately make him “mixed race.”

I hate to lick the red off your candy cane, but the superdelegates don’t actually count until they VOTE at the convention. She can still flip them.

Look back to the Bush/Gore election.

Most conservatives and Republicans were gung-ho for Bush then, and Gore was the unlikeable boring one.

Now we have McCain, who is not liked by many conservatives, and we have Obama, who has a huge energized following.

I’ll stick with my opinion (because I think I’m right) :)

I think we can know for sure. Appalachia HATES Obama. Appalachia includes Southern and Eastern Ohio, South Western and Middle Pennsylvania.

There is no way that Philadelphia and Cleveland overcome the margins that McCain is going to run up in the Appalachian portions of those states.

Without Pennsylvania and Ohio, Obama loses.

The MSM is desperate to declare for Obama. After that, it's Obama + MSM + Unions + 527’s + Europe and the Middle East vs McCain + RINO’s + Disgruntled Hillary voters + moderate Democrats.

“I think she’s still not going to let Obama have tonite due to her sick sociopathic tendencies.”

But she is right. the so-called “pledged” superdelegates are not really so bound.

BTW, how do we know they are “pledged” - and how strongly?

Exactly right. What I find ironic is that whole concept of the superdelegate is to make sure that the Democrats have the capabality -- right up to the last minute! -- of changing their mind and saving themselves from a candidate who has suddenly become unelectable.

The DNC understands the purpose of the superdelegates.
The media understands the purpose of the superdelegates.

But it suits their purpose (today) to slap their hands together and say "Game Over!"

But they know it's not.

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. I don’t think Hillary has any intention of conceding the race at this point. All signs point to Democrats within the media waging a campaign against her, IMHO.

What we are witnessing is the true “power” of the media and those within it who are using this power to influence our elections. We may be excited because no-one here really likes Hillary - however, you MUST keep the following in mind - what happens when they start doing this to REPUBLICANS? (Like they haven’t already.)

As I said long ago, the Clintons have to be the bride at every funeral, and the corpse at every wedding.

She’ll keep hanging in until she can get something out of it. Money, position, whatever. The hag.

She's desperate to hang on to her White House dreams, because that's all she's ever lived for.
