    Do many of these soft Clinton supporters know that it is just about over?

    The Clintons are corrupt selfish race baiting zero character scumbags. I'd rather be run over by a tractor-trailer than willfully vote for any Clinton again.

      The Clintons have spent a lot of time on the Island and they have attracted some excitement - I assume that her time there has made them feel relevant in a way they have not felt before - so that would work in her favor.  Other than that, there are news reports which say the same things we get - but that hasn't convinced many people in the mainland that the race is over - just look at HRC supporters today at the RBC meeting.

      All of that having been said - I think her soft support comes from name recognition and the fact that Obama is not well known.  The support is also soft because many people on the Island - as they do not get to vote in November - do not really get as involved in mainland races as they do in Island politics.  I suspect that many of them will not turnout in as high of numbers as the Obama supporters on the Island.

      Non, je ne regrette rien
