Now we will NEVER quit hearing Hillary complain about how all the men are ganging up on her.. Come on, you know it's true.

It's like how she complains about people who will not vote for her because she's a woman, but then when women vote for just because she's a woman, THAT is alright. You can't have it both ways...

I don't know if I agree. IMO she is backing off a bit and Obama is being very careful to compliment her often. She is going to continue (probably) but bow out gracefully after the last primary. Her hatred of "W" outweighs all.

I want to see what happens after May 20 before I say she has backed off. She has had the benefit of being in WV and now KY where she has huge pockets of support, so she can play the part of the magnanimous winner for a few days. But after the 20th, when Obama will likely have a majority of pledged delegates, that's when the test will come. If she remains circumspect then I will assume she is not going to keep throwing bombs. But really until she actually drops out of the race I am going to be waiting for her to launch her next attack on Obama.

In other thoughts, the Al Gore watch has begun. He says he won't be endorsing until the primaries are over, but I have to expect that the night of the final primary, or the day after he will likely be coming out for Obama.

Look for May 31st - the day the DNC rules committee meets to figure out what to do about Florida and Michigan. With Edwards and his delegates going to Obama, Hillary's only remaining prayer is that both delegations are seated in full, and the 55 'uncommitted' Michigan delegates are *not assigned to Obama's camp. (An underrated aspect of the Edwards endorsement is that it's now easier to argue that those delegates should go to Obama, since Edwards and Richardson - most of the rest of the uncommitted vote - have both endorsed him anyway)

Then it's up to Hillary to decide to play nice and concede the night of the last votes, June 3rd. As a lovely consolation prize we have a prime-time speech at the convention, and your choice of a cabinet position, choice Senate committee chairpersonship, or possibly a clear path to the NY State Governor's mansion.

But if she appears determined to keep making a fuss, look for Obama to schedule a huge rally focusing on Global Warming and the Environment in Broward County, Florida on June 4th. Complete with a special guest speaker from Tennessee.

CNN says 8.

The greater point is that even pledged delegates are not necessarily required to vote the way for the person they were chosen to vote for (although this can lead to their removal as a delegate). Edwards' delegates especially, are free to support anyone they want, and while most will probably go to Obama, it's not a guarantee that they all will.

First, a little historical background…in the late 1970s, oil prices rose by over 120% in less than a year, and in the early 1970s, oil prices rose by around 300% in less than a year, so a 40% increase is not nearly as dramatic as the earlier episodes.
