Chris Bowers:

First sentence of his post is:
I had a difficult time falling asleep last night, as I couldn't shake the feeling that something terrible had happened.
And it ends with:
If Clinton wins Pennsylvania, then there might be no end in sight, no way for the nominee to unite the party, and our general election advantages disappear. However, it is up to Obama to pull this off, not on Clinton to back down and / or drop out. There are 48 days until the Pennsylvania primary.
From the looks of things, Obama will not win Pennsylvania. Read the rest.


Rush is having the time of his life! From now until the end of the primaries, he'll have Republicans voting en masse for Clinton so they can vote against her in the general election.

What are the superdelegates going to do if Clinton comes into the convention with a slight lead in both the delegate count and the popular vote, but exit polls show that her margin came mostly from crossover Republicans?

Fun fun fun!

Doesn't this apply to *all* the republican voters who crossed over to vote for a dem candidate in the primaries? Even before Rush's latest gimmick, there were plenty of reports of "life-long" republicans who swiched to a dem candidate this primary season.

If these voters aren't willing to officially change their party affiliation, why should anyone expect them *not* to vote for the republican candidate in November? Especially after the republicans chant "Teddy Kennedy tax and spend liberal" for a few months about whichever democtatic candidate emerges, and then come up with a sweeeeet Republican-approved tax cut for all patriotic hard-workin' Americans.

The sweeeeet tax cut will pay for itself, by the way!

I'd like to see some realistic estimates as to how many republicans have voted in the democratic primaries and caucuses. It will be very interesting to see how reliable that group turns out to be in the short-term, medium-term and long term scheme of things.
