Coming Into Focus

As you probably seen, there’s been a rush of stories today predicting a quick move to shutter Hillary Clinton’s campaign, as soon as Tuesday night but more likely on Wednesday. The most detailed story is Tom Edsall’s from Huffpo.

We’re working our sources too. And Obama spokesman Bill Burton confirms to our Greg Sargent that the two did speak yesterday evening but denies that there was more than that.

It’s probably worth also pointing out the obvious, which is that after tomorrow night, the Democratic nominating process will literally be over. No more primaries, no more caucuses, no more disputed delegations waiting to be resolved. There’s a remaining question whether Obama can get enough supers before or soon after tomorrow night’s voting to actually clinch it. But with thing going on for so long I think many of us have gotten to a point where we can’t quite believe this would ever end. But at a certain it’s no longer a matter of a concession. It just ends. But it does look like we’ll have some confirmation of where this is going in a matter of days, perhaps even not too many hours.

Late Update: In another bit of tea leaves, the undeclared Democratic senators (who are of course also superdelegates) are meeting this afternoon to discuss how to go forward.

Late In The Primary Process Update: Here’s what Clinton’s top fundraiser, Hassan Nemazee, told Greg Sargent about reports she’ll drop out Tuesday.
