This week the New York Times said that Hillary Clinton had no more than a five per cent chance of winning the Democratic nomination. Which begs th obvious question, why continue?
Granted that Hillary will win Pennsylvania. But she is about 160 elected delegates behind Obama and there is no way she can pass him in the elected delegate count. As for the super delegates, they are slowly but surely drifting away from Clinton to Obama, Governor Richardson being the most prominent example.
With the odds so heavily stacked against her, does it make sense for Hillary to keep attacking Obama for another three months when many of the attacks will be used against Obama in the general election next fall.
Already Clinton has said only she and McCain are ready to be commander in chief. Her husband has implied that only Hillary and the Arizona senator are patriotic.
Does it make any sense for a five per cent chance to tear the Democratic party apart and hand the election to the Republicans? Or should Hillary end it now gracefully for the sake of her party and indeed for her own sake?
What do you think?
