Now what? That is the question everyone is asking and no one knows the answer to.
So, Clinton wins in Pennsylvania and , as of this writing, by a comfortable lead (more than 5 percent) over Barack Obama.
Obama, in fact, didn’t even stick around the state to concede. And he called the people who live there “bitter?”
The so-called experts who keep saying the very next primary will make the difference are now saying that—–the very next primary will make the difference.
The fact is, Clinton is still very much in this race and it is starting to look like this may actually go all the way to the Denver convention, something no one in their right mind wants to have happen. But, it just might.
So much for the “unity” candidate
The absolute irony of this race is that Obama, who started off saying he wanted to bring voters together, has managed–partly through his fault and partly not–to have driven people even farther apart.
Young vs. old. Black vs. white. College educated vs. not college educated.
If this is what bringing people together is like, I’d hate to see what pushing them apart would look like.
There was a good New York Times piece today that more and more Democratic party bigwigs are saying aloud that a unity ticket may be the best way to go, but that Clinton and Obama so can’t stand one another at this point that that could never happen.
But, the article goes on, rightly, to point out that American history is filled with presidents and vice-presidents who hated or ,at least, didn’t like each other all that much.
JFK and LBJ. Ronald Reagan and Bush Sr. , to name a few. Hell, Ricky and Lucy didn’t even like one another during most of the time they were filming ” I Love Lucy.”
So, stranger things have happened and stranger things could happen still.
