This is all about convincing the superdelegates that Obama is a Republican landslide in disguise. (You may remember that the Greek word for disaster is Dukakis.) Hillary thinks she's a better candidate than Gore. She may be right. I think she's at least a better general election candidate than Obama.

Here's a (possibly pointless) thought. The last Democrat to collect a majority of the popular vote in a presidential election was Al Gore.

Before Gore, the last Democrat to collect a majority was Jimmy Carter, with 50.1 percent.

Bill Clinton never hit 50 percent.

There’s a popular view among Democrats and the media establishment that the reason for the party’s current disarray is that it just happens to have two most extraordinary candidates: talented, attractive, and in their gender and race, excitingly new. But there’s an alternative explanation, which I suspect the voters have grasped rather better than their necromancers in the media. Both are losers.

They get it in London.


Popular Vote Gives Clinton an Edge
