A Name Still Means Something

Barack Obama has now won 10 straight contests. Not only did Obama win, but he won every contest by large margins. Hillary Clinton has not come within 10 points of Obama since February 5th.

If Hillary Clinton was Hillary Smith or Hillary Jones, Wisconsin would have been the death knell for her candidacy. She is now down by more than 150 pledged delegates and needs to win the rest of the contests by large margins to catch up to Obama. The party elders would be calling her daily demanding she drop out of the race. But since her last name is Clinton, she is allowed to fight on.

I think Robert Guttman reads your blog. Too bad he can't be as succinct.
