Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way


By Meg

Hillary will win West Virginia tomorrow night by a huge margin (“Oh, really, Meg? How incredibly astute. I never would have guessed that!”). She’ll give a rousing victory speech, but the press will not bite (nor will the superdelegates). I think we all know it’s over.

Since my prediction above was so pathetically obvious, I’m going to make it up to you by throwing out a wild card prediction. After the final primary, the Holy Grail of superdelegates will have his say: Al Gore will endorse Obama, and everyone will finally shut up.

Where will this leave Hillary? As Holly Golightly said, there are certain shades of limelight that can wreck a girl’s complexion. She’ll stand with Barack at the convention, but don’t expect her to be vociferous. I think she’ll quietly go back to the Senate (unless Obama offers her a juicy spot in his administration, which he’d be a fool not to do) and start plotting Comeback 2012.
