The main steam media is crazy. On one day they are promoting the Obama and Clinton race to be the Democratic Party Nominee and acting like it is a real contest and horserace, but the next day they are telling us that Hillary does not stand a chance and should redraw. Can't the mainstream media get together in a smoke filled room and decide on their talking points?

Depending on your media source, different and conflicting views are certain. The plain and simple fact is that Hillary is done. She cannot win. Obama has proved the better candidate and by far the best qualified.

Common sense says to believe the correct version of the race, which says that IT IS OVER!

Obama prevails.

Good_Teacher - the media isn't crazy, it is profit driven, and there is quite a bit of profit for certain media in ensuring that this race is as drama-laden as they can make it. There is a show on NPR called 'On the Media' (that I like to listen to) in which the media talks about what they love to talk about most, themselves, and yesterday they addressed this particular issue. As a Clinton supporter, the subject matter may not be to your liking (but the question posed is an interesting one and has little to do with who you politically support)
