Speaking in London to the Associated Press, Jimmy Carter says by the end of the June 3rd primary, most superdelegates, like himself, will be announcing their decision for the Democratic nominee for President. ... Asked by a reporter:
"Is Mrs. Clinton achieving anything by staying in the race?"
"I think not.
Of course she has a perfect right to do so. ... I'm a superdelegate, having been President before, and I think a lot of the superdelegates will make a decision -- announced quite rapidly after the final primary on June the 3rd. ...
I think at that point it'll be time.
To me, there isn't much to say in the way of analysis or further comment, other than this:
Please recommend this diary, short as it is, so that as many people as possible can see this important video. It's time... for the big guns to stop this scorched earth run, given there is no chance for her victory ... And any further justification such as
"I'm not a quitter. I want to show young girls in America that if you want to succeed, you do not quit. You keep fighting with every last breath you have."
is past its expiration date. The point's been made very clearly, and if anything, the role modeling has bent into the "if you can't win on merit, then wreck the other guy's chance" subliminal message.
And America's youth deserve to learn a more positive lesson in how to succeed... and how to concede much more gracefully when the possibility of victory is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be mathematically impossible. THAT is not only character-building but also exhibits great strength that commands the highest respect.
