Time to Suspend?

Both Sen Clinton's and Sen Obama's spin machines are in full force. You can sense from their post election night E-Mails where they are at.

An out of character 'reserved' HIllary Campaign:
Tonight's victory in Indiana was close, and a margin that narrow means just one thing: every single thing you did to help us win in Indiana helped make the difference.
From Obama:
As of Tuesday morning, we needed just 273 delegates to clinch the nomination. When the votes are fully counted Wednesday morning, we will have gained more than a third of them in a single day.

We have a clear path to victory.
And he's right!

But it wasn't that long ago, that Senator Obama drew the line in the sand:
"You know, Sen. Clinton is more favored in Pennsylvania,” he added, “and I'm right now a little more favored in North Carolina, so Indiana right now may end up being the tiebreaker.
And to be fair, Obama set the goal posts, and Hillary won the tiebreaker, so maybe she should fight on.

Personally, I think it is time. There is only a few more weeks until the last primaries. Then the DNC will pressure the Super-Ds to get off the fence. If Hillary waits that long to acknowledge the inevitable, her withdrawal will be hollow and the healing more difficult to take place.

The negativity we have seen in this campaign, be it from Hillary or the Right is only the tip of the iceberg. Time to let the GOP put all their guns on the future President Obama so he can continue to display the courage, character and experience he will bring to a fresh new White House. Should he falter or fall, Hillary will still be there to grab the mantle, but the likelihood of that happening are nill.

I'm not ready to officially hop on the train yet. I'm just glad I don't have a dog in this fight. I just wish it would be over so I can roll up my sleeves and get to work. Too much is at stake to let this opportunity slip away!
