Hillary leaves contest until June 15th or sooner

Eine Fülle von Indizien weisen auf einen baldigen Ausstieg Hillarys aus dem Rennen hin. Hier nur einige Beispiele:

1. Lawrence O’Donnell von der Huffington Post hat offenbar ein Gespräch mit einem hochrangigen Vertreter aus der Clinton-Kampagne gesprochen, der indirekt den Ausstieg Hillarys bis spätestens 15 Juni ankündigte:

A senior campaign official and Clinton confidante has told me that there will be a Democratic nominee by June 15.

He could not bring himself to say the words
„Hillary will drop out by June 15,“
but that is clearly what he meant.

I kept saying, „So, Hillary will drop out by June 15,“ and he kept saying, „We will have a nominee by June 15.“

He stressed what a reasonable person Hillary is.

Everything about our conversation implied that he had
already had this reality-based discussion with Hillary.

2. Eine ganz ähnliche Information hat die Washington Post erhalten:

I sent a message to one of her most loyal supporters early Wednesday morning asking what are her realistic options?

She has only one option,“ he replied.

Gracefully exit and help unify the party to beat [John] McCain.

How quickly, he was asked.

„I would advise them to figure out how to do it as soon as this weekend,“ he replied.

3. Nach den Ergebnissen von Indiana und North Carolina hat der
bisherige Unterstützer von Hillary Clinton, ehemalige Gouverneur und früherer Präsidentschaftskandidat George McGovern (der gegen Nixon verlor), Hillary Clinton zur Aufgabe aufgefordert.

4. Die New York Times berichtet, dass sich die „pundits“ (die Fachleute) einig wären über den Sieg Obamas und die erforderliche Aufgabe Clintons:

Tim Russert of NBC News:

We now know who the Democratic nominee’s going to be, and no one’s going to dispute it,” he said on MSNBC.

“Those closest to her will give her a hard-headed analysis, and if they lay it all out, they’ll say: ‘What is the rationale? [Was ist das Kalkül?]
What do we say to the undeclared super delegates tomorrow?

Why do we tell them you’re staying in the race?’
And tonight, there’s no good answer for that.

5. Und Chris Wallace von FOX News meinte zu Karl Rove:

„I think there’s an increasing presumption [Annahme] tonight that Obama’s going to be the nominee“

For Dems sake, give up, Hillary.
