Playing the Race Card

In the aftermath of Hillary’s holdout win in the Pennsylvania Democratic Primary, numerous Clinton surrogates are suggesting that Clinton’s wins in “battleground states” mean that Barack Obama’s overwhelming lead in delegates and popular votes should be overturned by Democratic Superdelegates because… why is that again?

Democratic primary elections are decided by, um, Democrats. The Clinton campaign’s argument rests on the premise that if Clinton’s Democratic supporters can’t vote for Hillary, they’ll vote for a Republican.

I hope that the Clinton supporters and the Democratic Superdelegates aren’t as stupid as Hillary Clinton seems to think that they are. Fortunately, so far, they seem to be much smarter.
