Clinton clinches Democratic nomination

I don't know how the Associated Press managed to "find" enough delegates for Hillary Clinton to clinch the Democratic nomination a full day before the polls close in California, but they did.

In some ways, this isn't too surprising. I believe it was in the Texas gubernatorial election of 1998 that media outlets managed to post George W. Bush's winning percentage days before the election. Then again, that was a general election, and the press always supports Republicans in those. Just like how they support Republicans in the Democratic primary.

Also, I know superdelegates don't vote until July, but the whole point of superdelegates is to protect establishment candidates, so there isn't much of a window to keep Clinton from being the nominee.

Hope you enjoy your new right-wing President.
