Hillary Picks Up Superdelegate
What??? Didn't everyone get the message...? Obama has won the Democratic nomination; just ask the pundits and bloggers.
Well, apparently not just yet. Talk Left posted:
Out of 85 pledged delegates from the Volunteer State, Hillary has nabbed 40 and 17 remain uncommitted.
Tennessee Automatic Delegate Vicky Harwell announced her support for Hillary Clinton today. Harwell, of Pulaski, is president of the Tennessee Federation of Democratic Women.
"Hillary's decisive victory in West Virginia is the latest evidence that she is the strongest candidate to take on John McCain and win back the White House," Harwell said. "Hillary has the plans, leadership and experience to deliver real results as President."
And now Edwards endorsement signals the beginning of the unification of the Democratic Party around its nominee.
Why pursue this (self-) destructive path HL? Hillary Clinton gave it everything she had, but she came in second. It's time to come back to the real fight: the one against the Republicans. Let go of the bitterness and join the fight against John McCain's attempt to give George W. Bush a third term.
Can we please retire "metric" to the Cliche Hall of Fame. It may be the most overused word of this campaign season.
