Buh Bye

Hillary is defeated. And in many ways, it pleases me to no end. In fact, the only real bad news in this is that now we have to go up against the freight train they call "Obama."

After suffering a rather embarrassing defeat last evening in multiple states (as well as suffering defeats in roughly 20 out of the last 30 contests), Clinton has been lapped by Obama in the race for President. Unless the ol' lady takes a 30 point lead in every remaining state and unless Chelsea can wine and dine with all the other 795 super delegates, Hill is pwned.

So how does Hillary take this news?

Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has found a lot of ways to explain her string of losses to Sen. Barack Obama.

Caucus states, the former first lady says, are undemocratic and cater only to party activists. Southern states, like Louisiana, have "a very strong and very proud African-American electorate" naturally predisposed to favor a black candidate. And so-called "red" states like North Dakota, Idaho and Kansas — all of which Obama won on Super Tuesday — will never choose a Democrat in the general election anyway.
Nothing but weak justifications from a sore loser who can't admit defeat. Even the AP article itself reads:

The list of excuses is long, but the justifications are wearing thin

And it doesn't stop there. Hillary proves she can't admit defeat in the fact that she hasn't even congratulated Barack's victory for the second time in a row:

For the second election night in a row, Hillary Clinton failed to acknowledge or congratulate Barack Obama after he won the day in dominating fashion.

On Tuesday in El Paso, hours after Virginia had been called for Obama, she stuck to her “Texas campaign kickoff” message and did not stray from an energetic, Lone Star-themed stump speech. She did mention Obama by name, only to chide his health care plan.
Classy woman.

Closing advice to Barack Obama himself: Be careful. Hillary wants this nomination bad, and we all know what happens when someone gets in her way. I'm just sayin...

And to everybody else out there, don't give up hope! We're halfway there! Now we just need to stop the guy who wants to lose the war and raise your taxes.
