From today's New York Times:
This, of course, comes from the same person who has not followed the DNC rules up till now, regarding Florida and Michigan. What makes her so sure that she would have followed a 'winner take all' rule, anyway?
“The states that I’ve won total 300 electoral votes,” she told about 300 people in a high school gymnasium in Maysville [Ky.], the birthplace of the actor George Clooney. “The question is who can win 270 electoral votes? My opponent has won states totaling 217 electoral votes.”As she has in the past, she discounted Mr. Obama’s victories in caucus states and states likely to vote Republican in November, ticking off Alaska, Utah, Nebraska, Kansas and Idaho. “Many of his votes and delegates come from caucus state which have a relatively low turnout,” she said.
“Right now more people have voted for me than have voted for my opponent,” Mrs. Clinton said, without explaining how she reached that arithmetic certainty.
But the real question is, why does the New York Times feel compelled to let us know that Mrs. Clinton gave her speech in a town famous for George Clooney.
