Hillary Clinton’s PA Win Not Enough

NY Post: “Too Little Too Late”

Hillary Clinton

Outlets are reporting that Hillary Clinton’s win in Pennsylvania yesterday is not enough to help her get the nomination, as Democratic rival Barack Obama still has a significant lead across the board in the delegate count and popular vote.

He has also raised double the money she has this year, which has to annoy Hillary, as many of her campaign creditors are angry that she has not paid them. As a result, they’ve been going to the press and spreading the word not to do business with her.

It’s a shame you guys can’t use some of that money you’re hiding from the IRS in the Cayman Islands and not paying taxes on, to pay your creditors, but that would be against campaign rules.

How can you responsibly and transparently address the current economic crisis that’s hit America, when you’re being shady with your own money.

Too Little, Too Late

April 23, 2008 — Hillary Clinton refuses to die. Having been given up for dead after losing Iowa, she rebounded in New Hampshire. Then a string of 11 straight consecutive losses – followed by a win in Ohio and a tie (in delegates) in Texas. Now, she’s won Pennsylvania.

Problem is, it doesn’t mean anything.

Because of the Democratic Party’s arcane proportional-representation rules, her win stands to give her a net gain of 10 to 15 delegates when all is counted. That means that Barack Obama will fall from a lead of 161 in elected delegates to about 145 or so. Big deal…


Here’s an article in the New York Times about Hillary’s crooked, cruel campaign she’s being running and how she “squandered a 20 point lead” via that meanness:

The Low Road to Victory

The Pennsylvania campaign, which produced yet another inconclusive result on Tuesday, was even meaner, more vacuous, more desperate, and more filled with pandering than the mean, vacuous, desperate, pander-filled contests that preceded it.

Voters are getting tired of it; it is demeaning the political process; and it does not work. It is past time for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to acknowledge that the negativity, for which she is mostly responsible, does nothing but harm to her, her opponent, her party and the 2008 election.

If nothing else, self interest should push her in that direction. Mrs. Clinton did not get the big win in Pennsylvania that she needed to challenge the calculus of the Democratic race. It is true that Senator Barack Obama outspent her 2-to-1. But Mrs. Clinton and her advisers should mainly blame themselves, because, as the political operatives say, they went heavily negative and ended up squandering a good part of what was once a 20-point lead.
