Better get used to it.
Why? Clinton will fight like a badger to keep her dream from dying, and along the way, may actually convince the Democrats that she can beat McCain, and therefore must win the party’s nomination.
And then the Democratic leadership may be forced to make a very ugly move:
Strip the nomination from Obama so that Hillary can (supposedly) win the general election.
But if that happens, Obama’s supporters will stampede to McCain’s side and vote her into oblivion.
So by snatching victory from Obama, Clinton may very well hand the presidency to McCain on a silver platter. And the more I think about it, the more I’m convinced that Clinton would prefer a loss to McCain in the general than to Obama in the primaries.
