Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

An upset in Pa.?

The Pa. primary is going to be an upset for Hillary. She’s banking too much on the perceived ignorance of the public and their lack of interest in the political process. I think she’ll have a rude awakening in the morning. Obama will win, albeit by a 1-3 points. It’ll be a close race, but I think Obama has gained on Clinton much more than the polls are suggesting.

Tomorrow we’ll read headlines similar to:

Upset in PA!

Clinton Machine Comes to Halt!

Women Turn Out For Obama!

The pundits will be discussing how Hillary lost her base — the female vote — because she spent too much time trying to churn up bitter gunfighters in bars.

All this being said, I don’t think she will bow out gracefully, even with a loss in Pa. Her selfish determination will not allow her to step aside for the good of the party. But hey, it’s her right and prerogative to stay in. Besides, I don’t think anyone is expecting grace from Hillary at this point anyway.
