CLINTON IS UNLIKELY to drop out imminently, because she is a Clinton. But last night’s Hillary showed a lot less fight than the one who came out swinging after the victory in Pennsylvania.
Bill, who did a marathon of nine events on Monday in North Carolina to no avail, could be seen behind Hillary, wearing defeat all over his face.
She’ll still fight for Florida and Michigan to be seated, and make the pitch to superdelegates that only she can win the big important states, but Obama will quietly inch closer to the nomination in the coming weeks.
Obama’s inability to close the deal against Clinton — in Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvania, and Indiana — suggest potential weaknesses for him a general election, especially among working class voters.
The protracted primary season knocked off Obama’s halo. Though his victory in North Carolina was impressive, it was nothing compared with the staggering margins he racked up in neighboring Virginia and South Carolina earlier in the race.
But the general election is a whole new battle, and anybody who still thinks that Obama cannot take a punch, needs to ask himself why a such a political novice is on the verge of taking down the once-indomitable Clinton machine.
