Wonder how Mark Penn is spinning the latest ARG poll in Texas?
48% Obama, 42% Clinton.
I'm sure that if these numbers continue to move in the direction numbers everywhere have been moving and continue to move, and they lose Texas, they'll find a way to explain that this state doesn't matter, either, except, of course, for the superdelegates they're courting who live there. Kos nails it:
That [the Clinton campaign] would even suggest a tactic that would sunder the Democratic Party, kicking off a vicious and destructive civil war, tells me that like Bill in the 90s, when our majorities in Congress and all around the country were decimated and the party's base left to wither and die, Hillary will put her own interests above those of their party. And to me, there's no greater sin in Democratic politics than that.
So the Clinton campaign has graduated from saying that certain states don't matter, to saying certain voters don't matter, to now saying that the Democratic Party electorate doesn't matter.
