Hillary Clinton's Michigan Logic
I wondered whether Senator Clinton was going to emerge Wednesday with more negative attacks, race-baiting, and general punch-throwing, or show a more sensible side that suggests that not destroying the Democratic Party from the inside is in her best interest. Of course, it was the former, in the few sentences that didn't mention her heroic victories in Michigan and Florida (those tough contests versus "Uncommitted"). At this point, the only way she can win the nomination is a superdelegate coup. Though the rules don't necessitate it, it's time for her to get out of the way and stop trying to move the goalposts 50/56ths of the way through the competition.
