HRC as Spoiler

First, this piece by Keith Olbermann from MSNBC last night is just hilarious. Check it out. Tip-of-the-hat to Ray.

Second, I had a lot of fun playing with CNN’s Delegate Calculator while I ate lunch today. There’s just no rational math that gets HRC the nomination. HRC would have to trounce BO by on the order of 20 points (60% vs 40%) in every remaining primary contest and the undeclared superdelegates would have to vote for HRC at a 2:1 ratio (66% vs 33%) for HRC to clinch the nomination.

Obviously, neither of those two things are statistically probable – unless HRC has video of BO shooting up heroin with 8 year olds while playing with himself. I think that’d have been leaked by now though.

Third, and finally, Dick Morris did a great job nailing the “HRC as Spoiler” theme a couple weeks ago. HRC isn’t running today to win in 2008. She’s running today to make sure BO doesn’t get elected so that she can run in 2012 as the Democratic nominee. Plain and simple. There is no other rational explanation, IMO.

What a tool.
