  • It'll be over by this time next week.

    Russert, Chuck Todd, and others reporting today that Obama has been working the phones Mondale-style (more in a sec) to secure the nomination on Wednesday the fourth of June, after Montana and South Dakota finish the Primary season with their votes.

    In '84, Fritz Mondale won the NJ primary in June, but lost California to Gary Hart, and things were still up in the air...but Mondale had worked on Supers throughout the month, and just after NJ, a group of like 30 of them came out en masse to support him. It killed all the momentum from Hart's campaign and ensured a Mondale victory.

    Obama is doing something similar. He's got about 40 Supers in his pocket right now from both houses of Congress. The details aren't clear, as they depend greatly on how the DNC chooses to seat the FL and MI delegations when they meet on Saturday, but the most likely scenario--according to Todd, who is golden--has Camp Obama trotting out all the Supers he needs on Monday, just enough to put him ten delegates shy of whatever the goalpost is after the DNC meeting. Then Montana will put him over the top and he'll be able to declare victory based on actual votes. Clinton will have lost by any measure at that point, and if she continues to fight onwards the damage to her political future will be rather irreversible.

      No way. Puerto Rico is going to win Hillary the nomination.
      “I’ve always stated, ‘I’m a Missouri Tiger,’” Anderson said March 13 after Arkansas fired John Pelphrey, adding, “I’m excited about what’s taking place here.”

      Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

                      Its been over since Wisconsin as you stated.

                      When he gets those Hillary will not concede.

                      It isn't in her.

                          Until I see the stake in the heart, I will not believe it.
                          From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death.

                          For more than 20 years I have endeavored-indeed, I have struggled-along with a majority of this Court, to develop procedural & substantive rules that would lend more than the mere appearance of fairness to the death penalty endeavor.


                          I feel morally and intellectually obligated simply to concede that the death penalty experiment has failed.

                          The path the Court has chosen lessens us all. I dissent.
