1. Hillary’s dilemma: She should drop out, she can’t possibly win. She can’t drop out, she just won some big victories.
2. The MSM media has clearly flipped to her. The reason: Her continued campaign is good news. It saves us from months of political boredom.
3. Her only chance is somehow to discredit Obama as a plausible nominee. I hope she doesn’t go too far down this negative road, and that the MSM doesn’t help her make mountains out of the molehills that have emerged so far. As Peter points out below, the Democrats have no alternative these days but to rely on her self-restraint.
4. McCain owes Huck big for staying in the race and allowing him to grab the headlines last night and this morning.
5. Here’s one rejoinder to the professor I talked about before who’s voting for Obama in the hope he will govern as a Democrat. One of my colleagues says it’s conceivable she’ll vote for McCain in the hope he’ll govern like a Democrat. Her hope, of course, is more reasonable, and it may be one reason that arguably Mac is the strongest possible Republican candidate.
6. One of Hillary’s comments this morning suggests that her real goal now is a Obama-Hillary ticket. And as Steve Thomas points out below, the role of the Superdelegates may end up being to facilitate that statesmanlike conclusion to this contest.
7. Obama-Clinton would be really, really hard to beat.
