So You’re Going All The Way, Are You?

Not that it’s unexpected, but Hillary finally reveals she’s in it until Denver.

Obviously this doesn’t necessarily mean she will be, and candidates say some of the strongest, rah-rah stuff right before they drop out, but let’s just say she’s serious. And let’s say she takes her case all the way to the credentials committee. Is she being realistic?

TPM has Donna Brazile’s take…

According to Brazile, in addition to the twenty-five members of the Committee appointed by Howard Dean, the rest of the committee will be made up of 3 members apiece from each state. In other words, it works sort of like the senate, where all states are counted equally, regardless of their size.

While some disagree with Brazile’s simplistic breakdown of how the situation will go, it seems that when all the complicated rules are accounted for the result is pretty much the same.

Long story short, the fact that Obama has won a ton more states than Hillary means there’s virtually no way she’ll be able to win in the credentials committee.
