Because you don’t have a choice!
So tonight it became clear that if the Democratic nominating process is going to take place in a manner that is at all democratic, Barack Obama will be the party’s nominee. It is now Hillary Clinton’s responsibility to drop out of the race. But you didn’t need me to tell you that. Just read the Washington Post or Slate’s Hillary Deathwatch.
But here is where I can offer my own crackpot conspiracy theory: I sincerely believe that if Hillary Clinton does not drop out of the race this week, she is intentionally trying to make it impossible for Obama to beat John McCain in November. She believes that this will ensure her the nomination in 2012, when she believes that she can finally win.
This quote from the Washington Post justifies my point:
A Clinton adviser said the situation was increasingly becoming one in which “she cannot be nominated and he can’t get elected.”
So the obvious solution is to destroy your own party’s candidate and subject the United States and the world to four years of John McCain so that YOU can be in the White House.
Or am I going totally out of my mind?
