    until Hillary exits gracefully or is forcefully dragged away from the race kicking and screaming.

    It appears increasingly unlikely the former will happen. Ironic that Hillary's supporters point to that as a sign that Obama "can't close the deal".

    •  um if she wins and puts delegate race back to (0+ / 0-)

      less than 100, which is possible, it aint over, FL/MI will matter, S.D's will matter.

      •  "Less than 100" (5+ / 0-)

        the new new firewall?

        "She'll lose, but not by a ton which actually makes her the winner."

        Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the conceit that Clinton somehow is owed SD support by birthright and the movement of SDs to Obama is somehow not real.

        •  it is real in light of Feb wins (0+ / 0-)

          but I think a win in TX/OH/RI/PA will also give some room for them to go for HRC, my opinion.  It is not owed to her, but it could go for her, who knows.  Yes, the new firewall, in my opinion it will make it okay for S.D to back her, and it will pressure a MI/FL decision because it could be two states that make the difference, at this point, i'd be willing to support even a caucus there.

          •  What makes you believe (0+ / 0-)

            there are any superdelegates left who would have gone to Hillary but haven't until now? They didn't flock to her while she was inevitable because they wanted to see her eke out a 6-point win in Ohio before they committed?

            •  i make no claim to know what S.D will do (1+ / 0-)

              but i think it will be easier to back Clinton if she wins March 4th, we shall wait and see, Obama is still favored to win, fine with me, I like Obama, but I just don't think its over, sorry.

      •  Don't forget... (0+ / 0-)

        after PA, there are around 400 delegates left to be picked. You might want to take a peek at what states those are coming from.
