The Democratic nomination has historically always been an integral part of Clintonia by mattsteinglass

Josh Patashnik has a great post in TNR:

The longer the fight goes on and the closer the race appears, the deeper the divide becomes–it takes on a life of its own and before you know it you have irate activists traveling thousands of miles to Washington in passionate opposition to the fair and legitimate nomination of a candidate whose views they agree with.

I think this may be a case where living 10,000 miles from Washington  makes it impossible to understand what people are going on about. I had some of the same sensation during the run-up to the Iraq invasion: “what on earth is going through these people’s heads?” The intensity of the anger on the part of Hillary’s partisans, and the sheer illogic of the arguments they’ve embraced to justify their continued support for her claim to the nomination, is breathtaking.

I continue to feel about Hillary herself the same way I’ve felt since the fall of 2007. I prefer Obama, but I think Hillary Clinton would make a fairly solid candidate and a good president. But the stuff that’s coming out of that campaign and its supporters at this point is just madness. The only thing I can think of to compare it to is nationalist arguments over pieces of territory: Serbian nationalists defending their claim to Kosovo, Israeli settlers on “Judea and Samaria”, Chinese on the terrorism of the Dalai Lama.
