Please, internet, STFU about all this stupid "It's official, Obama wins the nomination" shit. It's NOT official, and Hillary is obviously(per her speech tonight) going to continue to be a retarded bitch about it. I'm happy that he's winning too, but it's not over till the fat lady concedes, so shut it!

It's really a triviality, though, for the loser to concede if there is absolutely zero chance the loser can win the nomination. It's kind of like saying the Lakers still didn't officially make it to the finals because the Spurs didn't "concede" defeat.

Oh I completely agree, it makes no difference at all to the final result, but it's not *conventionally* an official win here unless there is a concession of defeat and a claiming of victory. It says to me that her ego is so horrendously large that she can't even be gracious enough to do that, which I think is (a) appalling and (b) an ongoing problem for the Democrats that seems totally unnecessary.

It's not a triviality though, since the superdelegates can vote for whomever they want. Do you think that Hillary isn't trying to wrestle those votes even now?

I think she's using this indecisiveness as a bargaining chip for the VP post. It would be next to impossible that somehow Clinton manages to win the nomination, and she knows it.

I will concede that maybe it's not "official", but Clinton stands an ice cube's chance in hell to win the nomination.
