Is Hillary’s concession too late?
Hillary Clinton has finally conceded the Democratic presidential nomination to Barack Obama, who has claimed enough delegates to win the outright nomination. This is the move the Democratic National Committee wanted months ago.
For all intents and purposes, Obama sewed up the nomination in a narrow defeat in the Ohio primary. While losing, Obama won enough delegates to build an insurmountable lead. Everyone this side of Bill Clinton was begging Hillary to drop out of the race.
John McCain wrapped up the Republican nomination in what now seems like eons ago, and he has had his sights set on the Dems for months, but even with the DNC saying that Hillary was damaging the party’s chances to win in November by dragging out a lost battle, the indefatigable New York senator forged ahead.
Now, Hillary is finally calling it quits and promising to do whatever she can do to help Obama win the White House.
One must wonder if her concession is too late.
