Clinton Camp: If Obama Doesn’t Crush Us, We Win

It really is silly season in the Clinton camp. Check out the latest spin in which they call all four of next Tuesday’s contests “must-wins” for … Obama.

If he cannot win all of these states with all this effort, there’s a problem.

Should Senator Obama fail to score decisive victories with all of the resources and effort he is bringing to bear, the message will be clear:

Democrats, the majority of whom have favored Hillary in the primary contests held to date, have their doubts about Senator Obama and are having second thoughts about him as a prospective standard-bearer.

This is almost to ridiculous to comment on. If he doesn’t totally kick our asses, we’re still in this thing?!? C’mon. Plus, you have to love the quiet desperation evident in the slight of hand about Hillary winning the majority of the votes in the primary contests.

Listen, we know you hate caucuses, because you don’t have a ground game to compete with the Obama get-out-the-vote monster, but what kind of arrogance and disrespect does it take to exempt them from popular vote tally?

For the record: Obama has been leading in the popular vote since the Potomac primary, even with Michigan and Florida’s votes added in.
