Oxygen

TPM Reader JP shares his take …

Perhaps my analysis is off, but isn’t the new Clinton campaign focus on the FL and MI delegates really about maintaining public attention (i.e., preserving oxygen). With Obama wrapping up the majority of available pledged delegates, the remaining primaries just aren’t that interesting from a media perspective and are likely to generate little coverage, especially with likely focus on issues such as Obama’s strategy for winning the election, VP selection, and the Denver convention. The outcomes of the remaining primaries can’t change the game (take the nomination away) UNLESS coupled with a decision to seat the FL and MI delegates. Lack of media attention won’t help the debt situation and won’t persuade super-delegates to change their votes. Hence, going “toxic” may be the only viable path if the choice is to stay in.
