Why would she concede? She is waiting for Obama to implode or for the superdelegates to come to her rescue.

It’s only right that they should protest/riot at their own convention. These nuts tried to make big trouble for the Pubs in 2004 in NYC. NYC was the wrong city to do this. Denver may be ripe.

“Bob Novak told us almost a year ago that the Clinton camp was sitting on something devestating,”

Thought that was last month. Robert Novak the reporter that is. And he said the Clinton people were having trouble getting it out.

Meaning they can’t get a trusted person to trot it out without their fingerprints all over it.

Irony has a sense of humor. Somewhere Sidney Blumenthal is weeping and saying, “Sorry, I tried Hillary, I tried so hard.”

Having spent this many years waiting for the final demise of the Clintons I find it difficult to admit, but admit I must:

If a democrat had to be elected this time, the country would be better off with Hillary than Obama. There. I said it.

Hillary’s damage can be fixed. Obama may do damage that cannot be fixed.

Remember what Rush said-he said he we would know by Hildebeast’s remarks whether a Michelle Whitey tape exists. I think we have our answer.

Yes we do! That Limbaugh is such a clown.

What is even worse are the folks who worship his every utterance.

The factors involved in this are absolutely fascinating to me!

First of all I love that the Clinton’s aren’t getting the almost automatic coronation they were clearly expecting!

Obama’s speech is designed to shame Hillary out of the race—I predict she will NEVER concede! He better watch his back—she will stop at NOTHING . . . and IMHO she would NEVER stoop to accepting a VP slot . . . they’ll twist and spin whatever they need to, to get her the nomination.

As for an Obama/Clinton ticket . . . I think people would see the WORST of each of them, not what they (theoretically) could do together. That ticket would go over like a lead balloon!

And then there’s Bill. Jumping up and down with glee that she’s “almost” out of the race . . . but to her face, turning on those fake tears. (tee hee!) I don’t think he could stand the thought of her being President, b/c that would take away something he had but she didn’t. If she gets far enough in this race (somehow) I think he’ll sabatoge her efforts, big time.

McCain isn’t my choice for the “R” nomination, but if he’s smart, he’ll hammer home what he’s going to do, and continue to let the “D”s sabatoge each other.

I don’t remember who said it on talk radio today, but it was interesting . . . “The change some people are hoping for might be worse than what we have now.” (or something like that!)

So that’s my 2 cents . . . I enjoy reading everyone else’s, too! The next 5 months will be very interesting indeed.

I don’t believe there is a tape. In this campaign season, all you need is the rumor of a tape and suddenly, in people’s minds, the tape exists.

This is 2008. If the tape existed, it would have you-tubed itself by now.

There is no tape.

So, we work harder than ever to keep him out of the White House. They are equally liberal. They would appoint the same judges. I respectfully dispute the premise. She knows how to abuse power and would abuse power. We would have a better chance battling him. He would not dare try to pull the things the Clintons pulled.

I am, of course, worried about him defending the country. He is hopelessly naive. Kennedy was naive when he met with Khruschev. That is why Khruschev had the Berlin Wall built and put missiles in Cuba. He saw Kennedy as weak. That weakness was exploited. If Obama wins, he will be meeting with military advisors who will tell him we cannot set a timetable and let the enemy know when we will leave Iraq. He had better listen.

"“I won’t be making any decisions this evening”. What decision is there? She lost.

Not quite. Obama's pledged delegate total leaves him shy of the majority necessary for gaining the nomination. He will have to rely on Superdelegates to get him over the top in Denver, and Superdelegates, by definition, can cahnge their mind between now and August.

Obama is entirely capable of committing a gaffe or series of gaffes that would make his nomination a disaster in the eyes of many superdelegates. She still has a 5-10% chance of seeing such a reversal before Denver. Many others, with far less support, stayed in their races all the way to the convention, plus it will guarantee her a primetime speech in Denver.

Obama seems pretty subdued compared to his usual self-definitely not like someone that just clinched the nomination. You can almost see he knows the shitt is about to hit the fan. Look at the dude’s face.

If she's not asked to be VP on the Obama ticket then that's exactly what I think she'll do! It will pure KAOS!

I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of said tape.
Actually I don’t invest in such a thing. I do however find the comments reported of Bob Beckel somewhat intriguing.

But let’s wait for reality. I don’t like the investment of hope in rumors. Silly.

Must be an ego buster extraordinaire. I see alcoholism in her future … or another ego buster in 2012. Gee, how much can this women take … a philandering husband and loosing to a relative unknown … ;-)

That’s a prescription for urban rioting. Would the Rats dare withdraw the nomination to the Obamination? I doubt it.

They would have done so now if they had any common sense. But they are Rats.

I would rather HRC be the nominee than BHO for the same reason.
Senator Obama wants to change the USA from the only superpower to a more mediocre status.
I think HRC’s policies will do that, but I don’t think she has American decline on her agenda like Obama does.
Obama will also side against Israel.
Hillary won’t.
He will not use force or the threat of force in furtherance of our national interest.
Hillary will.
HRC may give MAC a tougher contest, but a President Obama could put us tango uniform.

Until the super delegates actually vote at the convention, Obama is not the nominee. Hillary is going to spend the next two months trying to sway/blackmail the super delegates.
