I am loathe to say these words, but it can no longer be prettied up or spun any other way: It's time for Hillary Clinton to concede defeat to Barack Obama and leave the fight for the Democratic Presidential nomination.
I did not come to this conclusion lightly, in fact, I've been clinging to every shred of hope that I could desperately grasp at.
But no more. Hillary, if you're reading this, and I know you are, it's time to call it a day and pack your skivvies and go home. Girlfriend, the harsh truth is that you will never get the numbers. Oh, how I wish this wasn't the case! How I wish I could vote for the first woman President of the Untied States! But that's not going to happen, at least not this year. And right now, with the myriad of scandals and malfeasance associated with the current Bushie Administration, we need to focus on getting the Democrats in full and overwhelming control of the government. We don't need more of this being dragged out like an ill-refrigerated corpse.
Hillary, the most Honorable Senator Clinton, I admire you. I think you would have made an outstanding president. It's just not in the cards right now. Please step aside so that we - and the media according to Russert and Tweety - can focus on the Obama v. McCain match up and every other race that is going to dominate our every waking thought until November.
Oh, and George and Dick, don't let the door indict you on the way out. Asshats. It's like we got Nero and Caligula as leaders all at the same time.
