Clinton finally wins a state

The Hillary Clinton campaign lives to see another day by winning Kentucky by 0.4% - despite not being part of the miserable Super Tuesday that was designed for establishment candidates like Clinton.

To the shock and awe of many, Bernie Sanders was actually ahead in Campbell County for much of the evening.

On the other hand, this could turn out to be a good sign for Clinton in November, since she didn't lose the Kentucky coalfields by nearly the smashing margins as in West Virginia. What this could mean is that the idiotic meme about Clinton talking about coal miners being put out of business is backfiring right in the Republicans' stupid faces. Some predict it's a sign that Clinton will seriously contest Kentucky in the fall. After all, it doesn't make a shred of sense to automatically concede Kentucky to an incompetent New York billionaire like Donald Trump - especially since the Kentucky House is so important this year.

None of that changes the fact that Sanders would still do better than Clinton in November. Then again, Kentucky was so close that Clinton and Sanders may receive an equal number of delegates.
