The editorial page of the Washington Post is filled today with columns about the faultering Hillary Clinton campaign. The best one is by Michael Gerson who disproves all of the candidate's theories about why she should be the Democratic nominee. He concludes:
Though it is increasingly unlikely, Clinton may still have a path to the nomination and what a path it is. She merely has to puncture the balloon of Democratic idealism; sully the character of a good man; feed racial tensions within her party; then eke out a win with the support of unelected superdelegates, thwarting the hopes of millions of new voters who would see an inspiring young man defeated by backroom arm twisting and arcane party rules.Read the whole thing here.
Unlikely -- but it would be a fitting contribution to the Clinton legacy of monumental selfishness.
