Hillary's Shamelessness Is Back
Hillary Clinton and her surrogates are now claiming that she's ahead in the popular vote. Uh, actually Barack Obama is ahead. So how can she make this claim? Oh, by counting the votes from Michigan and Florida that she agreed in advance with the other candidates wouldn't count. Obama's name wasn't even on the ballot in Michigan. And she will get away with this. She will still be behind in delegates and actual popular votes by convention time, but she'll find a way to strong-arm enough superdelegates to give her the nomination. I'm just getting a creeping feeling about this.
