The Wicked Old Witch At Last is Dead

Hillary Clinton was right. Tuesday night was a game changer, but not as she had hoped. Obama is winning in North Carolina by 15% and Indiana remains too close to call (despite Clinton’s earlier victory speech). It is no longer possible for Clinton to win a majority of delegates or win the popular vote. Obama has withstood a couple weeks of primarily bad news and still beat expectations in both states. Clinton threw everything she had at Obama, proving she is willing to do anything to win, without success. Clinton has lost any chance she might have had of convincing the superdelegates that Obama is no longer electable.

The media might have pretended that this was a real race long after it was mathematically over, but now the news media is getting ready to declare a winner. The New York Times says that Clinton’s options are dwindling. Drudge’s headline declares Obama The Nominee. Tim Russert (video above) and Chuck Todd have come to the same conclusion. Clinton might hold of on conceding a while longer, but for all practical purposes it is over.

It is a new era in politics, and the dirty politics of Lee Atwater, Karl Rove, and Hillary Clinton is no longer the way to win. Two families have shared control of the government for the past twenty years and have become virtually identical. The Clinton/Bush Dynasty is finally coming to an end.

    That was one thing I learned last night while watching the television coverage of the vote coming in from Gary. Whenever we drive or take the train to Chicago through Lake County we will have a much better understanding of the surrounding area.
