Really, really tired of all the attention about superdelegates and their ability to decide the fate of this campaign. Not going to happen. Jim Clyburn agrees.
Clyburn told The Trail last week that it is “crazy” to think that a majority of superdelegates would side with a candidate who finished second and flip the nomination to that candidate.
“It’s crazy to think that way, and it’s crazy to act that way,” Clyburn said Friday in a more than 30-minute interview about the nomination fight. “What our role is supposed to be is to extend the will of the people, not reverse it.”
I like Hillary, but it’s getting to the point where it’s entirely unrealistic to think that she can pull this thing off in any way. The MSM’s focus on this is based on an irrational hope for the worst-case scenario (ratings). Tonight’s results are likely to reinforce Obama’s inevitability as we head on to other states where Hillary has seen solid leads dwindle (sound familiar?).
