Hillary Wins, Nobody Cares!

If a tree falls in the woods and nobody is there to hear it, does it make a sound? This is the logic I apply to Hillary's victory in West Virginia. Sure, her victory was huge (according to the pundits), but I have never seen so much ado about nothing. So for those who skipped out on some previous discussion, let's go over this one more time. Mathematically she can't win. If the party gives her the nomination, they lose the African American vote and fracture Democrats forever. Barring catastrophic meltdown, Obama is in. While the pundits were busy gabbing about Hillary's victory, very little attention was paid to the fact that on the day of her triumph, Obama picked up more Super Delegates. Don't be distracted by the Hillary's warped rhetoric or reasoning that no Democrat can win the White House without West Virginia. At this point she will say anything to keep her prospects going just a little longer. I hate to burst your bubble, but don't count on it ending anytime soon while networks like Fox News and CNN can draw in ratings on fake drama and mathematical improbability. I don't know about you, but my tuner is set to American Idol. Forget Hillary versus Obama, it's David versus David. Now that's what I call a competition!
