Jumping Ship, Onward Obama!

Sorry, Hillary, it's over. A Democratic victory in the General is more important than a Clinton victory in the Primary, and my previous analysis that she is the least "Rove-able" (and hence, more likely to win in the General) has been nullified by the damage to the Democratic Party which will result from her continued campaign.

The historical race has settled into a normal campaign between warring camps, and I no longer believe the Obama supporters would be able to support Clinton enthusiastically even if some miracle gave her the nomination.

I still think she was a great candidate, and less susceptible to being redefined by Rove and the compliant corporate press, but I no longer see any plausible path to the Clinton White House.

I am enthusiastically pro-Obama. Onward to the White House.

You ship will be sunk by U-boat "McCain" no matter who is driving it.

Good on ya, son. I think we'll get more help down ticket with Obama, too. I could see Clinton as a highly effective Senate majority leader, if she wants.

Here's an interesting take on the primary dynamic (sorry for my lack of cool html skills):

From the Booman Tribune--safe for work.

Obama will invite a challenge from the Islamo Fascists, because he will be seen as weak.

Exasctly, anonymous.

Obama has already said the will negotiate with the Iranian leader who has said he wants to eliminate Israel from the face of the earth.

No pre conditons, no nothing.

He is a fool, and will be perceived as a pushover.

Then he will have to do something terrible, maybe even use nukes, to "Prove himself" and get out of the mess.

Saying you will negotiate with terrorists before you are even elected is TREASON.

Anonymous also.
