Short Time Horizon?

Is the end near? Or, will there be another comeback kid named Clinton?

With millions of $ still in her campaign coffers and all of the time and effort invested up to this point, it is going to be very difficult to convince Sen. Clinton that she should gracefully back out of the fight for the long term good of the Democratic Party. What must make it extra difficult is the fact that many folks, as recently as last year, considered her a shoe-in, not only for the party nomination, but for ultimate victory in November 2008.

Should she fight on or throw in the towel?

Unless Clinton is able to at least win the primary popular vote which also would take nothing less than an electoral miracle and use that achievement to pressure superdelegates, she has only one scenario for victory. An African-American opponent and his backers would be told that, even though he won the contest with voters, the prize is going to someone else.
