The One Group Who Should Not Urge Hillary To Drop Out: Obama Supporters
By Big Tent Democrat
Speaking for me only.
The Obama-favoring site TPM points to this NYTimes article titled "Obama Backers Urge Clinton To Exit If She Loses." TPM turned this headline into "Clinton under pressure to drop out if she does not win big in Texas and Ohio." But with Josh Marshall doing his best Ann Althouse imitations, that kind of misleading spin is not surprising.
But I want to make a different point. The last group of folks who should be pressuring Hillary to drop out is the Obama camp. It will be counterproductive AND unseemly. It would be more likely to get Clinton's back up to hear these calls from the likes of Dick Durbin and John Kerry, fierce Obama supporters. They are not likely to be taken at their word that their concern is "the good of the Party" as opposed to Obama's candidacy.
