The Bottom Line

Watch this video as MSNBC's Chuck Todd delivers his analysis that there is no mathematical possibility for Hillary Clinton to overcome Barack Obama's pledged delegate lead in the remaining primaries left to contest.

Short of coup by superdelegate, Hillary can't win.

Given the scorched-earth, negative general election campaign that Hillary has waged thus far, you have to wonder if the point of staying in the race is to damage Obama enough to ensure John McCain's victory, so she can come back in 4 years.

House Democratic Whip James Clyburn, of South Carolina and the highest ranking black in Congress, also said he has heard speculation that Clinton is staying in the race only to try to derail Obama and pave the way for her to make another White House run in 2012.

Quoting Rep. James Clyburn-- “I heard something, the first time yesterday (in South Carolina), and I heard it on the (House) floor today, which is telling me there are African Americans who have reached the decision that the Clintons know that she can’t win this. But they’re hell-bound to make it impossible for Obama to win” in November, Clyburn told Reuters in an interview.
