    Stay away from people, run ads in big states where very people get a chance to meet you.

    hmmm.  Don't think it will work.

    I shall not rest until right wing conservatives are 4th party gadflies limited to offering minor corrections on legislation once or twice a year.

      She's actually running a strategy not unlike McCain's, which is going to get him the nomination.  I don't think it's going to work, but strategically it makes great sense, because it's harder to move votes in a big, expensive state like TX or CA or OH than it is in a smaller state.  So she can try to protect her leads by mustering her resources where she's likely to get the most delegates.  So far it's kept her just behind Obama, and if she wins TX and OH, she'll probably be back in the lead of pledged delegates.  

      The revolution will not be televised, but we'll analyze it to death at The Next Hurrah.

        is strangely and uncomfortably reminiscent of the Terry McAuliffe/DLC strategy of giving up states where you don't think you'll fare well to begin with and pin your hopes on states where you're more of a sure thing.  That hasn't worked out too well for Dems in recent years, has it?  And I think that's one of the things that makes me uncomfortable about Mrs. Clinton.  She's too much "into the game"...I don't know how else to say it.

      •  Different rules for McCain (1+ / 0-)

        The Republicans have different rules and a different atmosphere. Over there the party leaders rigged it so a moderate candidate could win (they originally thought it would be Giuliani). They used winner take all primaries and a focus on independent / Democratic states to give moderate McCain the win.
