Why Clinton’s Win in West Virginia is Good for Obama

Beauty contest, Kabuki theater, dog and pony show, call it what you will, every once and a while it serves its purpose.

So I’m sitting here rather listlessly, rolling my eyes at all the West Virginia news and keeping a half-hearted eye on the Mississippi 1st district race to see if Childers will put Davis away thusly sparking up a firestorm of controversy about just how much of a shellacking the GOP will take this fall.

As of the time of this writing, with 23% reporting, Hillary has 27 point lead which is huge, but not as huge as predicted.

And then I remember how much worse this could be, and that while all the spin and hysterical reporting and watching the Clinton supporters act as though this changes everything is annoying, it’s also quite necessary.

Yes, the more rabid the Clinton supporters seem, the more contentious the Clinton campaign comes off, the better.

Give me more.

Because as bad as a loss like this may appear, it would be a whole hell of a lot worse if Obama had lost this bad unopposed.  Thus, nights like this are little more than an unpleasant necessity, a rough spot that must be endured while we wait for this contest to be officially over.

    I looked at the exit polls.. 64% Hillary, 36% Obama. This is almost exactly what I said for WV when I projected the rest of the race out on saturday, so.. Hillary still loses.

    Remember, Clinton supporters themselves have said time and again that small states don’t matter! So why worry?

    As far as I’m concerned, Hillary jumped the shark a while ago. For the most part, I just find her desperation embarrassing. Sorta like when a schizophrenic is walking down the street talking to himself and you just look the other way.
