Billary: "Screw the popular vote, states and delegates"

Hat tip to Jack & Jill.

From the Boston Globe:

"Hillary Clinton will take the Democratic nomination even if she does not win the popular vote, but persuades enough superdelegates to vote for her at the convention, her campaign advisers say...

But Clinton will not concede the race to Obama if he wins a greater number of pledged delegates by the end of the primary season, and will count on the 796 elected officials and party bigwigs to put her over the top, if necessary, said Clinton's communications director, Howard Wolfson."
***NOTE: "Clinton -- initially joined other Democrats in opposing Michigan and Florida's decisions to go ahead with early primaries -- now wants the votes of those primaries counted."

Let me make it plain.

Billary will win steal this nomination by any means necessary. Their inevitability has been shattered, but never underestimate Billary's sense of entitlement.

If it means using the super-delegates, thus creating a mini-Florida 2000 within the Democratic Party, so be it. If it means adding banned delegates from Michigan and Forida that Billary initially agreed to ignore, so bet it. It it means turning off an entire generation of new voters to the Democratic Party, so bet it.

And now that Rep. John Lewis pledged his super-delegate vote to Obama, expect more from Billary -- the next 51% President.
