Unbelievable

"It was West Virginia that made it possible for John Kennedy to become president," [Hillary] Clinton told 400 supporters at a local high school. "John Kennedy didn't have the number of delegates he needed when he went to the convention in 1960; he had something equally as important - he had West Virginia behind him."

The support of West Virginia, a nearly all-white state with the 37th-highest population of all U.S. states, is "equally as important" as owning a lead in delegates, which by definition determines the presidential candidate. Hey, whatever supports your lost cause, Hill. Next she'll be telling us that the support of James Carville is more important than the support of every superdelegate combined.

"Democrats don't get elected president unless West Virginia votes for you," Hillary said. She failed to note that they also don't get elected if the vast majority of Democrats nationwide do not support their candidacy.

Hahahaha this is quite possibly the funniest argument she has made yet. This is the sign of a desperate woman. I mean that argument doesn't make an ounce of sense. Kerry or Gore didn't take WV anyway in the general election, so clearly they are not that important, especially in the nomination process. This is honestly one of the funniest things I've ever heard.

p.s. Welcome, Edwards, to the Obamamania
