Hillary Rodham Clinton won the Pennsylvania primary by 10 points in the never ending Democratic battle and has vowed to kep on fighting. She cannot catch Barack Obama but hopes to sway super delegates to vote for her as the best to lead the party. She will contend that she has won the larger states and that she is the best person to beat John McCain in the general election.
Her win in Pennsylvania has the Democratic leaders jittery about the prospect of Obama winning because he outspent her by more than 2 to 1 in an effort to put her away and end this thing. Despite having a great deal of money and a solid lead, Obama was not able to keep Clinton from winning and so the game goes on.
The Democratic leadership and its party members are probably losing sleep now more than ever because Hillary’s win cements, in her mind, that she can win if only her party would listen to (her) reason. She has forced the campaign to continue and again taken away time for the Democrats to attack McCain. The party is in chaos and this is not helping things. The leadership is already worried about a meltdown at the convention and add to that the recent poll that shows neither candidate’s supporters will back the other if that person is the nominee and it spells heartburn at the top.
I am glad that Hillary won but I wish she had won by twice that margin so that it would cast even more doubt within the party. I want Hillary and Barack to fight it out until the bitter end with a Democratic convention filled with anger and fighting. I want rioting in the building and Democrats coming unglued. There needs to be a total breakdown of the Democratic party come convention time so that America can get a good look at how they really are.
The Pennsylvania primary helped bring us one step closer to that outcome.
Hill-Rod is her wrestling name.
