    the primaries needing from 30-50 SDs to finish the whole thing off. Their guess was that he would easily find that many though others thought Hillary would fight tooth and nail for an open convention with no more SDs committing before Denver.

    This would ensure a second vote if not third vote. Hillary is still pushing that she carried the important states and has the majority of the popular vote. Pundits are arguing if she is running for VP or running for respect. I still think she thinks she can take it, so long as the SDs remain at the present uncommitted state.

    However, one pundit (on Fox I think, amazingly) said even if Hillary now captured the FL and MI delegates by the vote as it stood and also received their SDs, Barack would still win just by allocating the uncommitted SDs from states he carried to his side of the ledger.

      I would have guessed the Republicans would go to their convention unsettled, with Huckabee a spoiler, Romney and McCain deadlocked, and Ron Paul just barely strong enough to get the podium (hah! it's my dream and I'll stick to it) and throw the whole thing deliciously sideways.

      Even the suggestion that it might be conscious strategy on our side is...beyond contempt.

      Maybe one reason Appalachia likes Hillary is her abiding stubbornness.

        saying Hillary could become the Democrats' Ron Paul if she persisted on until Denver. I am still turning the implications of that comparison in my mind.
