With increasing likelihood, that’s all there may be left to Hillary Clinton’s campaign as soon as next week.
In the face of demands from Clinton’s attorneys that delegates from Michigan and Florida be assigned to the New York Senator’s ailing campaign, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are urging a finalizing decision after the last round of primaries on Tuesday.
The issue with Clinton’s argument about counting votes from MI and FL is that she agreed, months ago, that those states’ votes would not count. Now, of course, she desperately wants them to count — in her favor — using tactics that would cause Machiavelli himself to cum in his pantaloons.
In Florida she won a majority; however, in MI, all the other Democratic contenders had removed their names from the ballot. The result was approximately 55% for Clinton, with the rest being “undecided.”
She’d like to see none of the “undecided” votes being assigned to Barack Obama.
I don’t believe it’s misogyny to protest against this. I seem to recall another presidential race wherein one candidate used every trick available to try to take the election, leaving the nation deeply sundered — and it wasn’t as though he was actually a good president, either, in the end. He was, in fact, the worst one in US history.
For Hillary Clinton to be pulling the same kind of three-card-monte game so successfully won by Bush is not only sad, but a clear indication of the kind of leadership we could expect from a Clinton White House: About four more years of precisely what the last eight have been.
And to change the rules in the middle of the game, when doing so will tilt the outcome in your favor, is something so underhanded and unfair that most of us stop trying it when we’re about six or seven years old.
Hillary: Pick up your marbles and go home, while you still have the home to go to — and assuming, of course, you have any marbles left to find.
