Hillary and her people can give you many compelling reasons she should be considered the winner of the contest for the Democratic presidential nomination. All those caucuses that Barack Obama won were unfair, giving an advantage to his younger and more mobile supporters. Texas was an outrage, having an open vote by day that she won and then letting him come in with a mitigating caucus at night. Hillary has won most big states and swing states lately. If they had winner-take-all primaries, like the Republicans, she'd have locked this thing up long ago. The point is to nominate the strongest candidate to beat McCain, and, plainly, she is it.
True. Every word. And irrelevant to the score, which is determinative, the one thing that matters.
