Obama-mentum: The ‘Bitter Muslim’ is Gonna Win – AP

For a few years I’ve felt an Obama presidency was inevitable and would resort to telling disbelievers to “just wait… it will happen, trust me.”

According to nearly all accounts, Obama virtually has a lock on the Democratic candidacy and has so for six weeks or so. It’s only a matter of time before Hillary Clinton drops out of the race, and the sooner the better.

And public acceptance of this reality is finally approaching critical mass:

In a dramatic reversal, an Associated Press-Yahoo! News poll found that a clear majority of Democratic voters now say Sen. Barack Obama has a better chance of defeating Republican Sen. John McCain in November than Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Now we can only hope the Clinton campaign raises the white flag before the ridiculous cutting down of Obama cuts into his electability — even in purple states.
