Briefly, I find it fascinating that Clinton's strategists and supporters find no problem with simultaneously calling slim margined Obama victories 'not really victories' and framing a potentially close victory (if at all) in PA a massive victory despite her big erosion over the past few weeks here and, more ridiculously, whether or not she winds up winning by as little as a single vote.
Dumb quote below the fold.
Sen. Clinton's biggest local booster, Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter, is dismissing the Obama campaign's notion that a narrow loss for Obama on Tuesday is still a victory for him.
With Clinton expected to take the Commonwealth, strategists for Obama are that declaring if her margin of victory is only five or so percentage points, it is actually a win for Obama.
Mayor Nutter finds that concept amusing:
(laughs) "Only in the world of political spin can you try to somehow make the argument that a loss is really a win. It's quite interesting. It's quite fascinating."

(I really recommend reading the rest of the quote. It's hilarious from a logical standpoint.)
Framing is a natural thing to do; but to select conflicting realities at the pace and frequency of the Clinton campaign is absurdity personified. Further, it seems to me that what the above quote represents is a far more effective frame for the Obama camp than what the Clinton Campaign could hope for.
We've seen the consequence for practicing and implementing selective reality time, and time (...gasp,) and time again over the past seven years. I am as hopeful as I am certain that folks here in PA and around the nation are going to instead choose real reality for once. The best way to approach a venture back to reality is, in my opinion, by casting [our] vote for Obama, tomorrow.
Either way, best of luck to all.
EDIT: I added 'Philadelphia' to the title.
