The End is in Sight

With the win in South Carolina for Hillary Clinton, the fix is all but in.

With hundreds of superdelegates available to back her play, Clinton is a shoo in for the nomination. From this point forward, anything Sanders may do is an exercise in futility, a show for the hell of it. This race is now Clinton's to lose, and if her past record is any kind of indicator, she and her troops won't let anything stand in their way. No matter what it takes, no matter what she needs to say.

Hello, Democrats. I know you don't have much of a choice, but you gave up O'Malley in favor of two characters who both make Donald Trump look honest on the economy. Clinton's economic acumen is based on Wall Street while Sanders' economic acumen is based on misunderstanding of the basics. At least O'Malley tried to inject some common sense into the race.

Unfortunately, just as in the Republican race, common sense is as rare as hen's teeth. I really hope you know what you're doing.
