It appears that Hillary may be finished. She has had to loan her campaign money again...several millions. She simply did not win large enough last night in Indiana. The problem I see with this dilemma is that I do not believe Obama can win the general election. He does not have enough experience to be president. He has only been in the Senate less then one term. That's a big problem.
Another big problem is that Obama does not know what he is facing against the Republican party....with Karl Rove advising McCain. If there is anything at all unsavory in his past, it will come out in the campaign.
Thirdly, the race issue will rear its ugly head in the general election. There are many ignorant white people who will not vote for an African American. They will swallow hard and vote for McCain rather then vote for an African American. All one has to do is read the blogs to see that.
The only solution to this is for Hillary to be the vice presidential nominee. I don't know whether Obama could handle that if he sees that as a solution or if Hillary would even consider it if it is offered to her. Certainly she would not want to be a "sit in the background" vice president. And I don't know if Obama could handle having a strong woman as his vice president. I look for him to ask Kathleen Sibelius to run as his vice president. Though Kathleen is a tough politician she appears to have a soft approach to people and is very popular with Kansas voters.
