Clinton: Obama wants to stop votes

In a series of television interviews in states holding upcoming contests, Clinton vowed to press on with her campaign and suggested Obama and his supporters wanted to keep those states from playing a role in selecting the party's presidential nominee.

"My take on it is a lot of Senator Obama's supporters want to end this race because they don't want people to keep voting," she told CBS affiliate KTVQ in Billings, Mont. "That's just the opposite of what I believe. We want people to vote. I want the people of Montana to vote, don't you?"
I'd like to think we're drawing closer to Hillary Clinton's own Welch/McCarthy moment:
"Let us not assassinate this lad further, Senator. You have done enough. Have you no sense of decency sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?"
But I can't imagine anyone in the press interviewing Clinton and calling her out about her classless antics and straw men.

She doesn't seem worried that Montana voters who favored Edwards don't really have him as a viable choice anymore, now that he's dropped out.

Whether they vote or not, Clinton is almost assuredly not going to get a majority of pledged delegates. Neither is Edwards.

I wonder why Edwards hasn't endorsed anyone yet. If he is hoping to be considered for a VP slot, he needs to pick someone and make nice; and if not, I still don't get what he's waiting for.

Maybe he's truly undecided. Or maybe he's sour with both of them!

I read an interesting opinion piece (I know, I should post them, it's just that "here's an interesting piece" doesn't sound very interesting) that said nobody's concerned about "disenfranchising" all of the people yet to vote in the Republican primaries. Just like MI and FL, they get to vote, it's just that their vote won't change the outcome.

Yeah, it's a bizarre process.
