David Brooks on Clinton's 5% chance

David Brooks writes an opinion piece in the Times this morning:

For three more months, Clinton is likely to hurt Obama even more against McCain, without hurting him against herself. And all this is happening so she can preserve that 5 percent chance.
The "five percent" figure is Brooks' own, based on a 10% figure quoted by one of Clinton's aides before the week went so badly for her in terms of superdelegate support.

We've backed off a lot on Clinton criticism here in the last couple of weeks because, what can you say? Her chances are slim to win but great to do damage. Yet she keeps going.

When this is over, I hope we get a result that she and her supporters can live with.

In my case, it's simply exhaustion. She annoys me more every time she and her minions open their mouths.

Ahh, case in point.

OK, Clinton's right. I give up. This is what the election should be about.

We don't have any problems to debate in this country. I have to respect Senator Clinton's leadership on this matter. Impressive. I see a new way forward.

She's got my vote!
