    Did the Clinton folks say after TX, OH and IN, "Oh well, we only won because of Republicans"?

    •  I don't think Republicans (0+ / 0-)

      helped Hillary win any of those primaries.  In fact, she was ultimately the stronger candidate than Barack Obama and Republicans have always loathed her.  The only Republicans I knew who wanted to vote for Hillary were those legitimately crossing over for her (they were planning to vote for her in the general too).

      •  How you missed (0+ / 0-)

        all those bragging dittoheads I can't imagine -- there were quite a few in those states who did so, including Indiana which she carried by a razor thin margin.

        •  I suppose it's possible in Indiana (0+ / 0-)

          that there were Republicans who voted for her and gave her the margin of victory.  But that assumes that no Republicans did so for Obama.  And that these voters who crossed over weren't serious about both candidates as President.  In my experience, the Republicans who were voting in the Democratic Primary were converted to either Barack or Hillary.  I think many of them are still there.
