Hiller Instinct: Split decision
The Hiller Instinct: Hiller Instinct: Split decision
After tonight, this long campaign may just get longer or it could actually end. Hillary Clinton is the decider.
That makes her the most powerful Democrat in America, because she's the only one who can stop her exchange of mutually assured destruction with Barack Obama and give him their party's nomination while it still has some value.
But I don't expect her to do it. Even though now it is even harder to see how she can beat Obama; he's won more states, more votes and more delegates, and there aren't enough primaries left to turn that around.
Clinton and Obama have already divided democrats by sex, age, race, and class, and they still haven't figured out Florida and Michigan.
They've also raised questions and lowered expectations for the general election.
If their campaign continues, what do you imagine is ahead?
Is there anyone left who believes a Democratic president will transform America, and unite the nation?
Together, they can't!
Give Hillary credit for a great comeback that might have taken her all the way to the White House if she had more time. But she doesn't.
If she tells her supporters she's still running because "this one's for you," after tonight, it isn't! It's just for her.
Live newsroom, I'm Andy Hiller and that's my "Instinct."
