Still watching the live RBC meeting, which you can watch live here, but it’s time for a little mind break.
Die hard supporter Lanny Davis lays it out today.
The final argument for Hillary comes down to three points – with points
one and two leading to the third.
First, Sen. Clinton is more experienced and qualified to be president than
is Sen. Obama. …. Second, Sen. Clinton’s position on health care gives her
an advantage over Sen. McCain. … Third and finally, there is recent hard
data showing that, at least at the present time, Sen. Clinton is a significantly
stronger candidate against Sen. McCain among the general electorate (as distinguished
from the more liberal Democratic primary and caucus electorate). …
But there is one possible scenario that avoids disappointment and frustration
by passionate supporters of both candidates, that combines the strengths of
one with the strengths of the other, and that virtually guarantees the election
of a Democratic president in 2008:
A Clinton-Obama or an Obama-Clinton ticket.
One note on Michigan, there is no way Barack Obama, who voluntarily took his
name off the ballot, deserves delegates. He’d be rewarded for a campaign tactic
that backfired. That makes no sense.
