Hillary Clinton said she won’t stop campaigning because The Obama might be assassinated. A more real possibility is they will frame The Obama for murder the way they framed O.J. Simpson. Either way, her staying in the race makes sense.
Hillary Clinton’s grossly mismanaged campaign is now being dissected, not mentioned is how much of her bungled strategy was the consequence of stereotypes. She and her brain trust assumed she would win at least some of the black vote; thinking blacks might put race first is not a thought liberals allow themselves to have. They also assumed white voters in caucus states like Idaho and North Dakota were bigots who would never vote for a black man, so she didn’t compete enough in those places.

"It is wonderful to be back in Oregon. Over the last 15 months, we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it." - The Obamamessiah, decreeing seven, possibly eight new states into existence.

"I don't look like any president before...If I'm elected, that's not just a victory for me. That's a victory for people whose names aren't Smith or Jones, named Obama or, you know, Fernandez, people who historically have been on the outside, and I think it will signal that America is ready to think differently about itself." – Barack Obama, August 2007, explaining how “race doesn’t matter” to a Latino talk radio host.
When McCain talks about 'climate change' he seems desperate and grasping, like he doesn’t really care about it one way or the other. It’s as if he’s saying, “I’ll give you your global warming, just let me get my hands on some bombs. Just let me get my hands on some bombs and I will agree to whatever you want that doesn’t involve not bombing.”
