Back to Michigan and Florida

Just never gives up.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign acknowledged this morning that even if all delegates from Michigan and Florida were seated at the Democratic convention, she would not have enough delegates to claim the presidential nomination.

So, why not give up and call it a good fight fought yet lost?

This suggests that the campaign has determined that one of the major avenues to the nomination is almost certainly closed off and that if Mrs. Clinton intends to pursue it, she will have to look elsewhere — most likely to an appeal to the superdelegates to give the nomination to Mrs. Clinton.

If she can't win the vote or the delegate count, twist the arms of the bosses and broker a win.
