Hillary Rodham Clinton has been running for the Presidency most of her life. She has weathered though much. I admire her tenacity and spunk, but as a democrat the most important thing to me now is the party. The numbers, and yes I sat down and did the math, show that even in the most wishful scenario Hillary does not have the delegates to win. Her own staff have said she will fall short on pledge delegates.
IF, and this is a very big IF, Hillary did win the primary popular vote she could try and use this to sway superdelegates to basically commit political suicide and go against the public wishes. They would have to go to Obama and say, “Well Senator, yes you did win but we are going to go with Senator Clinton, you have a nice day.” Let me say I have a better chance of having Beyonce ask me out on a date than this ever happening.
This has to end and it has to end now. Someone, maybe former President Jimmy Carter, has to go to Hillary and tell her it’s time to step aside for the sake of the Party. Her delusion of somehow having the candidate in the lead agree to be her Vice President has been shot down and the snub of long time friend, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, who last week endorsed Obama clearly shows the ship is sinking.
This is an opportunity for the Democratic Party to take back the White House. Nothing is more important. We can not afford a George Bush's third term which is exactly what we will get under McCain. It is time for the Clinton camp to rally around Obama.
