Apparently, now the popular vote should count

Hillary Clinton last Night:

Nearly eighteen million of you cast your votes for our campaign, carrying the popular vote with more votes than any primary candidate in history. Even when the pundits and the naysayers proclaimed week after week that this race was over, you kept on voting.

If the "popular vote" counted, then we would have President Gore and President Kerry. It is not the popular vote, it is the distribution. I did not write the constitution. A bunch of slave owning old white guys did. If they did not set things up so that Hillary would beat me, then nothing could. And if popular vote does not count for the real election, then why should it count for the primary? The Clintons need to take a good, long, hard look at themselves and ask themselves what they would rather have? Me or McCain - A charming, educated, well-spoken democrat with good ideas and a vision for the future, or an elderly, cranky old soldier with some sort of PTSD (and so many other compaints) giving us eight more years of the same?

Obviously, they are still pushing for the third option - themselves - but that is off the table. It is time for them to suck it up and be adults about this. We can win this election, but not if there is division within our ranks.
