We Got The Mo, We Will Win

By the time the last primary/caucus is held, Hillary has to be out of the race.
  1. Barack needs a full summer to campaign against McCain who we have to decimate, annihilate in November.
  2. Barack needs a full summer to give us a 60 strong US Senate.
  3. Barack needs a full summer with running mate Hillary.
How do you get Hillary out?
  1. Spend the money. The primaries will be won through TV ads, and there money talks. Already we are giving Hillary a good chase in PA. I think we could win in PA if we do more of it.
  2. Don't take any remaining state for granted.
  3. Publicly keep urging the superdelegates to cast their preferences, one way or the other, now. Before the last primary/caucus, all of them must have come out of the closet. These are professionals, they must know by now which horse to pick. You pick the one with the most votes, the most delegates, the most states, the most money, the most volunteers, the most donors.
  1. Pick Hillary immediately.
  2. Bring in a million people for a summer rally in Central Park.
