Hillary’s campaign has put out what appears to have been intended to be an internal memo about strategy following next Tuesday’s primaries in Texas, Ohio, Rhode Island and Vermont.
The memo essentially paints Obama’s non-blowouts as proof that he’s lagging. Huh? Yeah, I thought that to. Here’s the memo.
Hillary’s people are admitting that Barack is out-campaigning them, out-fundraising them, out-orating them, out-spending them, and getting more big endorsements than them.
With all that, if Obama doesn’t win all four states, Hillary’s people say, this is evidence of a problem:
Should Senator Obama fail to score decisive victories with all of the resources and effort he is bringing to bear, the message will be clear:
Democrats, the majority of whom have favored Hillary in the primary contests held to date, have their doubts about Senator Obama and are having second thoughts about him as a prospective standard-bearer.
I never thought I’d feel sorry for the Clintons, but now — I still don’t. But it’s getting really pathetic nonetheless.
