I am wiped out, having sat nestled and sustainedly ‘altered’ to best achieve that out-of-focus sort of attention necessary to ingesting cable news political coverage these days.
Obama and Hilary are, essentially, tied in the pledged delegate count. Momentum almost totally belongs to Barack Obama and Clinton is, basically, playing the trap defense to try and hold off the crashing wave.
If this thing goes to the convention in Denver and these so-called “super delegates” we’re hearing about (former government officials, party elders and, most intriguingly, current Democratic Congressmen and Senators given a delegate vote), I think we’ll see a power struggle turn to upheaval.
What will not stand, I feel safe in saying, is the Democratic establishment circumventing the will of the people and casting their tipping votes for Hillary Clinton when Barack Obama is carrying all the excitement and promise of a new day.
Making him her VP won’t cut it either. He needs to vanquish her over the next few primary days coming up. He’s got the money and more of a head of steam headed into the upcoming caucus states. He can make life very uncomfortable for the Clinton campaign.
He needs to. And I think he will.
