While respecting her right to stay in, I would prefer Hillary drop out. If she had won big in Indiana and held it close in NC, I'd say her case was makable, even made; instead the votes came out the other way around, and now it isn't. Obama is going to be the nominee, and while I think he's weaker than she is in a general, it's too late now. This primary has been a disaster to any thinking person who's been paying attention to the political-media axis of this country for the past dozen+ years, but that's a post for another day.

On the bright side, McCain's press coverage seems to have been a little less adulatory lately, although that might be because few people have been paying attention to him in the wake of the Obama - Hillary matchup. With Wright essentially disposed of, I wonder what kind of Swift Boat-style thing the right is going to try to spring next. There has to be something; it's how the Republicans campaign. Both the Dem convention and the general election are going to be fascinating events.
