Hillary's delusions

Ok, yesterday I said I didn't want to talk about the Democratic primaries, but you guys asked questions anyway, so now you've done it. Thou shall suffer me!

Hillary can't win. She's had no chance of victory for months. It's over, finished, kaput! But she persists. She does have one small chance. She would need to convince a crushing majority of super-delegates to vote for her. And for that to happen, these super-delegates would need to take a shit on the popular and democratic vote that favored Obama. These same super-delegates, who for the most parts are elected officials, would risk taking it up the ass in their next respective elections. It's stupid, it's retarded and it's never ever been done since the super-delegate system was created (in 1982 I think). Not gonna happen!

Then why keep this up? Even Mike Huckabee, who had Jesus on his side, gave up. Hillary is wasting the money of Democratic donors that could have gone to the war chest of a Presidential candidate like Obama instead. Money is being wasted by bucket loads of million of dollars for a fight where the winner is already chosen. It's crazy. I have trouble understanding Hillary's motivation at this point. Does she think Obama has no chance to become President so it doesn't matter if she hurts his chances? It's her or nothing? Or is it just a little rich girl's sense of entitlement? She was once a College Republican after all. "Niggah stole my pony!" Is it just denial? Stupidity? She did vote for the Iraq war, that's plenty stupid.

And now this article from the Washington Post doesn't really help me understand. Under anonymity, a top Clinton aide says they've know since FEBUARY that they've lost!
"Absent some sort of miracle on May 31st, it's going to be tough for us," said a senior Clinton official who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to be frank. "We lost this thing in February. We're doing everything we can now... but it's just an uphill battle."

I don't get it...

I guess that would explain her tough talk against the Iranian government (But what is new). BTW, bad move on the Iranian ambassador to the UN. He should have let it slide. I do understand his outrage, but considering a sizable number of US politicians are salivating on the prospect of attacking Iran (McCain, we haven't forgotten about that "Bomb, Bomb Iran" thing), it was worth filling a complaint to the UN. Hopefully, we won't have to see any nuclear-induced mushroom over several cities anytime soon.

well she does have a chance. how slim it may be. and that for some people is enough to move forward,

I never knew how deep she was actually in it. I live in PA so as you know she won us and we were a big turning point for her. so everything i hear here is how hilary has a shot cause so many people here supported her. So i guess the ugly side of her story is getting drowned out to much for me to understand how bad it really is looking for her. all I know is im keeping my mouth shut till this is actually over for fear of sounding stupid

Besides..... the presidential elcetion is fixed anyways =P HAHA

That Pensylvania turning point story was really just media hype. This primary is a good time filler for the 24 hours news channels. Although now it seem they got tired of their toy and pretty much the pundits have stopped bullshiting and admitted Hillary is finished.

well if she does lose im giving my vote to obama for sure.. But my friend brought up a point that dawned on me. I fear MCcain winning and hoping people are smart enough to avoid him.

But assuming who ever wins wether it be hillary or obama. (for example we will just say obama)
Then all the votes for hillary will go to Mccain, simply cause of the fact that thier original hero didnt win.

In which case im hoping america isnt that stupid But..... living here Lets just say i wouldnt be so suprised if it worked out that way.

I know a lot of people have said "if candidate X doesn't wins I'm voting for McCain", but I think that's bullshit. A lot of Republicans said that if McCain was the nominee, they'd vote for Hillary or Obama. When McCain won, they gave their support to him anyway.

And if McCain is elected President, then I think there was nothing to be done because that'll mean people are just fucking too retarded for their own good.

Hillary is crazy. Thats not bias, either. The day after the LEwinsky scandal broke, she went before national reporters and said that the whole thing was, and I quote, "A vast Right-Wing Conspiracy" against her husband. Then, a few weeks ago, she somehow remembered a touching ceremony involving a Serbian girl giving her flowers as a race across tarmac under sniper fire. Whatever you politics you have to admit- if anyone else said this stuff they'd be in a padded room with a Thorazine nightcap before the day was out.

And yet people want to see this loon in the white house. Say what you will about Bush but at least he was SANE. Stupid, but sane.

She also favored loyalty over competance, as this article shows.

Clinton picked people for her team primarily for their loyalty to her, instead of their mastery of the game.

That became abundantly clear in a strategy session last year, according to two people who were there. As aides looked over the campaign calendar, chief strategist Mark Penn confidently predicted that an early win in California would put her over the top because she would pick up all the state's 370 delegates.

It sounded smart, but as every high school civics student now knows, Penn was wrong: Democrats, unlike the Republicans, apportion their delegates according to vote totals, rather than allowing any state to award them winner-take-all.

Sitting nearby, veteran Democratic insider Harold M. Ickes, who had helped write those rules, was horrified -- and let Penn know it. "How can it possibly be," Ickes asked, "that the much vaunted chief strategist doesn't understand proportional allocation?"

And yet the strategy remained the same, with the campaign making its bet on big-state victories. Even now, it can seem as if they don't get it. Both Bill and Hillary have noted plaintively that if Democrats had the same winner-take-all rules as Republicans, she'd be the nominee.

Her own fucking chief strategist didn't even know how the system worked!!!!1111
