Very good article. Hillary has become a cancer within the Democratic party, destroying it as she seeks to gain victory at any cost. It can be defined as the "either I win or I destroy the candidate in my party who has won" formula. This strategy is consistent with her blind power-lust for the presidency... if it can't happen this term, then 2012. Assuming that, with her early in the season help, McCain wins. She will then point to Obama, who she so badly battered with racial innuendo, bigotry baiting, and misrepresentations et al., that he looses, and say "I told you so." The "letting the voting process go forward" doesn't have a realistic function for determining the winner, which I believe she knows, but instead gives her more time to manipulate the superdelegates. And if that doesn't work, she can at least have more time to make Obama unelectable. This is a reality that her ardent supporters don't seem to understand. They cheer her on, hoping for a victory that is statistically impossible. It's as if they believe that by repeating the same mantra over and over again it will produce an outcome that contradicts the numerical facts. Meanwhile the cancer grows and the nation will suffer four-to-eight more years of Republican slow death.
