In the wake of Obama‘s 10-in-row sweep, cutting, for the first time across all demographic lines, came this from Newsweek’s Howard Fineman, spoken in the wee small hours last night on MSNBC:
“It is highly unlikely that Hillary Clinton is going to finish the primary season with a lead in pledged delegates. It is virtually impossible. The goal for her is to somehow lessen the difference in the number of delegates to like 30-200. If it’s a small number, this may be a pipe dream, they will argue that they can use the super delegates to make up the difference. But the bigger that number is, the more difficult that is to do… and risks a storm inside the Democratic party.” It’s time for Hillary to get out the knives for Bam. More likely, the voters will get out the fork.
