In an earlier post I said that it’s hard to see how the odds of a (tragic and unlikely) accident or assassination would be enough to tempt Hillary Clinton to stay in the race. It turns out I wasn’t cynical enough.
Yesterday Hillary defended her decision to stay in the race by referring to Bobby Kennedy, who was assassinated in June of 1968 after winning the California primary.
Apparently Ms. Clinton is holding out for the possibility of an accident or political killing.
And her later remorse for that stunningly tasteless and reckless comment was the “Washington apology,” which involves expressing remorse that anyone was offended.
A protracted nomination process was supposed to benefit the voters by showing us what the candidates are truly like. I think we’ve seen enough now.
