It's time for Hillary to go

But if she can't quite manage that yet, at least she MUST take the advice that David Gergen gave her on CNN last night. Tell her audiences that she doesn't want the votes of racists; she doesn't want people to vote for her because she's white. That whoever votes for her now must be ready to vote for the duly-nominated candidate of the Democratic Party in November. She's doing a serious disservice to herself and the country at this point. Stop it, damn it!

However, we must note this, from today's Times (also mentioned for the first time ever as far as I know, on CNN last night):

Since 1972, when exit polls first began, no Democratic presidential candidate has won a majority of white voters. The closest division was in 1992, a three-way contest when 39 percent of whites voted for Bill Clinton and 40 percent voted for the first President Bush. In 2004, President Bush defeated John Kerry among whites by 58 percent to 41 percent.

So fuck'em (if they can't take a joke, as my old, late friend Charles used to say).
