Terry McAuliffe just told Chris Matthews that Hillary will be ahead in popular vote on june 3, and will be real close in pledged delegates, but the key, according to McAuliffe, is none of the above. It is momentum. He calls it basically a tie thus far in the process, but she has the head of steam, and will be the strongest candidate in the fall.
So, now the key for Hillary is momentum.
one thing to keep in mind, George H.W. Bush referred to the Big Mo in 1980, only to lose to ronald reagan. it is another losing argument.
update: once the networks called NC for Obama, it is quickly clear that McAuliffe’s goalpost of momentum for Hillary will change next time he is put in front of a mike. wonder what’s next?
