If you want Hillary Clinton to stay in the competition, you must vote — to borrow a phrase from Ryan Seacrest. Trouble is, she can only muster enough votes to linger in the competition, not to win it. For a while now I’ve been insisting that, contrary to the daily drumbeat coming from the MSM, this is really a super-boring Presidential race. Mr. Black, blogging at The Economist‘s Democracy in America, agrees. 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.
