For as God Like or R-Kelly like the painting suggests, our good friend Karl Rove wonders, why can't Obama just put Hillary away? This is a good question. Karl said in an interview, “The problems that Barack Obama has with working class voters are real, and they’re not going away. It’s cultural. They view him as an elitist — as somebody who’s condescending and doesn’t share their values.” Way to use established talking points... Hillary's talking points, I might add.
Also, in Rove’s opinion, “Obama should not have gone [back] to Iowa and said, ‘I’ve got a majority of the elected delegates.’ Let somebody else do that. He should have focused on substance, not try to say, ‘[look at me], I’m ahead.’”
The issue will ultimately be settled by the Democratic National Committee, when its Credentials Committee meets next Saturday to making a final ruling on the heated dispute.
Does Clinton have a chance at seating some of those delegates?
“She might have a chance with the committee,” Rove says, “because it’s set up in a certain way where she has a lot of friends on the committee.”
And then there's Florida and Michigan, which if seated, would put her behind by a mere 50. 50. If you wonder why she's not dropping out - that's it. She can still take this thing, by golly.
