The insignificant others
"Could we possibly have a nominee who hasn't won any of the significant states — outside of Illinois?" Chief Strategist Mark Penn said. "That raises some serious questions about Sen. Obama."This is the Clinton strategy - diminish the importance of any state and demographic that chooses an option other than Hillary. She didn't win South Carolina, it doesn't count because of the Black vote. She didn't win Iowa, Washington, etc... well, those are merely caucus states, they don't count (which would knock Nevada out of her column by that metric).
Now it's the latest wins don't count because they're not from significant states.
So if you don't live in California, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, or New York, not a woman or Hispanic - you just don't matter to the Clinton campaign. That's democracy at work.
What's the next filibuster from the epic fail tank? "If you vote for Barack Obama, the terrorists win"?
