Hillary Loses Race - Refuses to Quit

With the Democratic primaries over, at long last, Obama has cinched the Democratic nomination. Obama announced that he will be the Democratic candidate last night.

Hillary, as I have always predicted, refuses to concede the election that she has clearly lost. CNN's Jeffrey Toobin calls it "deranged narcissism". Her non-conession speech is here. Obama tried to call Hillary twice after his victory speech and got only her voicemail.

Instead, gives a speech that's clearly not a concession speech, in spite of the fact that she's already lost. She muddles on in a pathetic, sad charade. If she was once seen as a Machiavellian candidate, she's now viewed as Quixotean. They say 'quitters never win', and 'winners never quit', but if you never quit, and you never win, then you're a fool, an idiot, or worse.

It's possible, I suppose, that she's just holding out to get Obama to help with her campaign debts or possibly as a bargaining chip to get on the ticket as Vice-President, an office FDR's VP said was "not worth a pitcher of warm p1ss.? But it won't work. Obama won the party's nomination fair and square and he'd be a fool to choose her as his running mate. Jimmy Carter called it "the worst mistake that could be made".

What a sad spectacle for a political family that was once so powerful in the United States. How far they've fallen.

"It's part of the national media's attempt to nail Hillary for Obama. It's just the most biased press coverage in history. It's another way of helping Obama."
