Not sure what point she's trying to proove. The only way she can apparently win is if some horrific tragedy strikes the other guy IE: he dies.
Being determined is one thing, but being stupid is something completely different. And she's the latter IMHO.
She still has a chance, it is not over. If the florida and ?? were counted, she would be ahead right now. That has to be resolved, and there are 6 or so states left yet, plus the superdelegates. Until these things are resolved, it is not over. Agreed, things are not looking great, and it is a longshot, but it can still happen, so why shouldn't she go for it, and why shouldn't those states that haven't voted yet have their say?
By the way, Obama refused a revote for the other two states, cause he knew he would lose. He would not be where he is today, if those states had not changed their primary date. It was the republicans that changed the date, and now the dems get penalized for it. That whole thing sucks, and is not fair. Brings back memories of fla. state supreme court giving Bush the election.
I hope I am wrong, but I think Obama is another Ivy league dummy like Bush. He is going to be so busy trying to make history that he is going to do a mediocre, at best, job. I dread this.
