Clinton's brother-in-law got a DUI in Redondo Beach, CA recently. Driving erratically on PCH and refusing a mandatory breathalyzer from the police. A little tiny blow to her. It would've been better if it were Chelsea Clinton. Stay classy dems.

Heh, this is a first in U.S. politics. The winner of a state primary is announced a day before the polls even open? Ah, you can smell the panic within the DNC Super Pac (aka, the MSM). Mrs. Clinton must not be doing very well in CA. . . .

try to persuade superdelegates that he would fare better than Clinton against presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

I know if Clinton wins the next primaries, she deserves the nomination, but her getting destroyed by Trump in the debates is a real concern for me. Trump has shown himself to be immune to criticism, as baffling and unfair as that may be. But when he attacks Clinton about lies and big-money connections, Clinton simply won't have a good response.

On the other hand, all Trump has on Sanders is him being a socialist. Sanders' reply would be a big "So what?" to what what I predict would be roaring applause.

If we're going to stop Trump, I really think Sanders is the better bet. Come on Cali, the country needs you!

I was thinking that too. Hmm, no wonder B. Sander's supporters are hopping-mad @the media.

Math is hard.

Seems very strange that the media declare her the nominee the day before huge primaries.

Calling Mrs. Bill Clinton the "winner" a day before the polls open is clearly an act of voter suppression. The democrats did the same thing in the South in the 1960s, only back then they used fire hoses and police dogs. Now the DNC deploys its lackeys within its media Super Pac to do the scrub work. . . .

The media is going to do the same thing when she goes up vs Trump. The dems are just sore losers aren't they? Remember when Al Gore even lost in his home state? Then he had the nerve to ask for a re-count in Florida. . . .

I'm just sayin'

I agree that media calling elections before they're over is bad journalism, but you know that if they actually recounted all the ballots (including the write-in ballots which Gore admittedly overlooked as well) in Florida, Gore would've won, right? Not just the state, but the presidency. The Supreme Court overstepped their bounds big time when they stopped the recount. Gore was robbed.

Florida was different. Remember, the MSM mistakenly called Florida for Gore, thinking that all the polls in that state had closed at 8 EDT. However, the panhandle is in the central time zone.

But I agree, whether she deserves it or not, the DNC's Super Pac will be calling Mrs. Clinton the winner in November unless Sen. Sanders becomes this election cycle's Ralph Nader to deny Mrs. Clinton her coronation. . . .

He shouldn't worry. If Hilary wins the presidency he can expect himself to be pardoned, just the same way Bill pardoned him on his last day in office for dealing cocaine back in the 80s.

I don't think anyone has called the remaining primaries for clinton before the polls open, but that after winning in Puerto Rico she reached the "magic number". Of course, that's only by including the super delegates.

"Hillary Clinton secured the commitments of enough delegates to become the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee."

OK, so enough Democratic delegates screwed up to make Hillary the apparent nominee, but don't forget all the Super Duper delegates who haven't voted yet and could switch to Sanders if Hillary gets indicted. As it is, she is still being investigated by a dozen FBI agents for her email server screw-up.

She won Puerto Rico delegates. Its super delegate will attend convention but its delegate count is added. And one more place she won. She has been popular with these small forgotten US territories.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Criminal Hillary may need herself to be elected just to stay out of jail, so one wonders what Hillary is willing to pay to keep the delegate and super-delegates from switching. Or are the delegates being expunged and replaced.

Seems to me Democrat delegates are being purged and expunged. Nevada probably the most known and openly corrupt of these cases.

Lovin' it. Go on with your Hillary bashing, GOPers - but take your time: you've got at least four years (possibly eight) to do so.

But Laguna, they are already declaring Clinton the winner in California before the voting even begins!!!! Heh

Ivanka Trump might be the first female U.S. president after one or two terms of Donald, if the Democrats actually nominate Hillary, as Donald will get about 20% of Bernie supporters and already Donald is tied with Hillary in the polls.

Superlib, I love Sanders, but Clinton has already won more than 3,000,000 more popular votes - a small margin for a primary, but larger than most recent presidential elections, basically matching the Bush-Dukakis vote, which was considered a blowout.. Nobody is calling Clinton the winner in California, but given that the vote is proportional, not winner-take-all, given that Clinton will likely do very well in Jersey on the same day, and given that she's already clinched the nomination when factoring in superdelegates - well, as usual, my home state doesn't have much of a voice - except to ensure Sanders a large place at the table.Thursday will be time to heal.

Only 65% of Sanders supporters in the California primary would definitely vote for Hillary in a Hillary-Trump match-up.

"she's already clinched the nomination when factoring in superdelegates"

Um, no, they haven't voted yet.

Ivanka Trump/ Paris Hilton 2020. Yahright.

Too bad the Trump kids care so little about politics that they couldn't get registered to vote for dad in the primaries. But they do have the same 0 offices held track record as dad.

Trump's tour of golf courses for the remainder of this month may not be enough to right a seriously failing campaign. Black GOP senator Tim Scott calling Trump racially toxic is a major blow. Curtains?

Tied with Clinton even before her indictment is a seriously failing campaign? Har!

Doesn't mean anything, even if she is elected. The FBI already said, they will take their time and rush the investigation, so whether she wins the presidency or not, charges could come up at anytime.

Clinton delayed Calf campaign and stayed in Puerto Rico to talk with officials and people. Once upon a time it was a touristy haven but it is the poorest Place in any place in USA. I think she figured people prefer eating food is more important than Income redistribution for other USA citizens, and she just stayed there. Sanders was there and preached his income redistribution and hurried to Calif.

@ Laguna

I love Sanders, but Clinton has already won more than 3,000,000 more popular votes

This widely touted statistic is factly inaccurate. The number represents primary results, but it does not include most caucus states, almost all of which Sanders won, and usually by a wide margin (like Washington). Caucus states report their numbers differently and/or do not give the popular vote tally.

Interesting that nearly everyone fails to report this when stating that 3 million number. Gives me great trust in journalism!

Hillary delegates. 1.812 super delegate 573 total 2.385

Sanders. total. 1.567. needs 816
