Count Every Vote, Except those for Obama


And the silliness goes on and on. According to the Clinton’s, only certain state primaries’ votes should be counted and definitely not the ones from caucus states. Those aren’t democratic. And Bill, who told Barack that he should get out of the kitchen if he couldn’t handle the media heat (politics is a contact sport, I believe he pontificated), is once again crying about Hillary receiving unfair treatment.

As a matter of fact, Bill and Hillary (who has repeatedly said she would not play the gender card) have rallied many of their voters around the idea of a great sexist injustice towards Hillary. To be completely honest, I am not in the position to disagree — I am sure there is some truth there. My problem with the Clinton’s has to do with their wasted potential, arrogance, and complete lack of scruples. But from a strategic and political standpoint, I can’t see how Hillary can argue on the one hand that her gender has kept her from getting more votes, while on the other she is arguing that she is more electable because she gets more white men and more of the popular vote. Something doesn’t fit.
