If you want Hillary Clinton to stay in the competition, you must vote — to borrow a phrase from Ryan Seacrest.

Not a terrible problem, especially if it’s not also a banal race, but Hillary’s only hope now — as it has been for some time — is living parasitically off the political media’s need for daily hype, for the high-stakes story, the human-interest drama. Never mind the bollocks: the race belongs to Obama.
