Why Mrs. Bill Can't Win

Remember Mrs. Bill Clinton's big win in Texas? Along with her victory in Ohio, it turned the race around? Here's the latest analysis of the actual outcome in the Lone Star State from CNN:

Clinton, of New York, defeated Obama in the primary by a 51-47 percent margin. But results of the caucuses were up in the air on election night and for several days afterward, due to state party rules that did not require local caucus officials to report their results to a centralized location....

And though Clinton won more delegates than Obama in the primary, 65 to 61, Obama's wider delegate margin in the caucuses gives him the overall statewide delegate lead, 99 to 94 — or once superdelegate endorsements are factored in, 109 to 106.
Hillary won Texas, but lost the elected delegate contest by six. She is never going to catch Sen. Obama in the pledged delegate race. She cannot win. Her only hope is that Sen. Obama self-destructs and is somehow forced out of the race.

Hillary can be the survivor, the last candidate standing, but she cannot win the nomination.

UPDATE: It also doesn't help her to make idiotic statements like this:

"We can be proud of both Jesse Jackson and Senator Obama."

Maybe YOU can be proud of a race-baiting, thug-defending hate-spewing demagogue like Jesse Jackson, lady. But only if you haven't been paying attention.
