She can't be bargained with. She can't be reasoned with. She doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And she absolutely will not stop

I read that Barack Obama is now backed by a majority of the Democratic delegates. Hillary Clinton said in response, "I will be making no decisions tonight."

You have to admire her tenacity and single mindedness, a majority of the delegates who will make the decision have publicly stated they will vote for Obama, yet she behaves as if she can still win. Her only options now are to attempt to change delegates' positions (several weeks ago she stressed that even if a delegate represented voters wishes, they were still free to vote for whomever they wanted) or legal action.

The papers here have spent the last couple of weeks talking about when she will quit, yet I wonder if she will. Her attitude to this campaign has been that of the Terminator, she has said anything and everything to demonstrate she is the preferred choice. Why stop now just because she has lost?
