The hurry among the press and pundits to predict whether Hillary will or will not concede, and when, overlooks the question of incentives. Hillary’s got an estimated $10 million campaign debt, she feels cheated and insulted, and Team Obama’s got to offer something in return for her concession. If they don’t want to deal — say, a flat-out guarantee to pay off her debt — then Hillary says, “Fine. I’ll fight on. Whatever it takes.”
Compared to running campaign offices and TV advertising in different states, it’s relatively cheap for Hillary to maintain a post-primary skeleton campaign. She and her proxies just make the circuit of TV news programs with their “we wuz robbed” mantra, and the campaign continues. If Team Obama wants to convince her not to do that, they’ll have to deal.
Hillary may surprise me and concede on TV tonight, but it would be a surprise.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
