The Low Road to Victory - New York Times

The Low Road to Victory - New York Times

"The Pennsylvania campaign, which produced yet another inconclusive result on Tuesday, was even meaner, more vacuous, more desperate, and more filled with pandering than the mean, vacuous, desperate, pander-filled contests that preceded it."
But, but, but Clinton supporters say, Hillary believes she's the best candidate to beat the republicans in the general election. Maybe, maybe not, but it isn't her decision, it's the decision of voters in the totality of the primary process. Not just the big states or of just women voters or white voters.

By most accounts, the great preponderance of evidence suggests we can throw out, or at least modify, the electoral models of the recent past in presidential elections. No one really knows the direction of many previously red or blue states this cycle. But one thing is for sure, we live in country that still recognizes the principle of one person, one vote. And by this standard, Hillary Clinton has lost the democratic primary.
