Obama slaughtered Hillary last night in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Barack didn’t just beat her. He whupped her good. Is Obama rising? Or is he only cresting until Hillary can smash him again in Texas and Ohio?
Now that Obama has won 23 of 34 states — does that make him the front runner or not?
Or does Hillary still have a few knives up her sleeve to slash her way through the Obama wave?
Hillary is still swooning from Bill’s lackluster performance
in South Carolina.
As a Senator, Hillary stood on her own and won her way.
As a presidential candidate, we are forced to deal with “The Clintons”
— Hillary and Bill and Chelsea — and Hillary loses her greatest asset
in that exchange: Her lone wolf strength.
Hillary is always best when
she’s blazing a path or fighting back from being cornered.
Today, she’s at sea and lost awash in a tide she did not predict or
comprehend. There’s no way to swim to shore. She’s drowning in the
midst of the rising tide of Obama’s mist.
Superdelegates are becoming more and more irrelevant with Obama’s rise:
No one will dare deny him the nomination if he continues to win the
popular vote and the general delegate count.
The democrats cannot risk a repeat of Bush’s goring of Gore in 2000 — so they need to start peeling away from Hillary — with Nancy Pelosi leading the way
— and provide the structural and institutional power to back Barack
and give him the cornerstone he needs to leap over the next treacherous
steps to the nomination.
We are on the cusp of history. We must not vanquish the opportunity before its predestined success.
