“I am very proud that as of today, I have received more votes by the people who have voted than anybody else,” she said after her narrow Indiana victory and before her big win in West Virginia on Tuesday. “It’s a very close race, but if you count, as I count, the 2.3 million people who voted in Michigan and Florida, then we are going to build on that.”
Since then, Clinton has tempered her claim of being ahead in votes, although her aides have not.
“I think I’ve now been privileged to receive the votes of 17 million Americans, and that’s pretty much the same as Senator Obama,” she said Wednesday on CNN.
Her campaign chairman, Terry McAuliffe, went farther Wednesday: “We are ahead in the popular vote — I cannot stress this enough.”
The Beef …
I counted every vote and it all adds up… but only if you’re using “Clintonmetrics”.
“Clintonmetrics” is a system of voting metrics (mathmatics + tricks) developed by the Clintons to spin the voting numbers their way. Coined here first, on the beefs. Wikipedia has yet to contact me, but it shouldn’t be long :)
fuzzy math + deception + wishful thinking = Clintonmetrics
Regardless of what math they use, it makes no difference. This is not a race for votes, it is a race for delegates. The popular vote is irrelevant, unless you live in Billary’s world. If you did, Al Gore would be finishing up his second term as president.

If Hillary wins by a small margin in PA , the twilight zone will continue for a couple more episodes. She may want to consider resurrecting Rod Sterling for a little Sci-Fi guidance. For those of you too young to recall, Rod Sterling hosted The Twilight Zone, a nightly anthology that ran on TV in the early sixties. It was a mix of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror … a world not to unfamiliar to the Hillary’s campaign these days. In this drama, Hillary is truly in despair; hanging on to hope, with not much left but her pride. I bet she wishes she could dig back into the Tzone archives and resurrect her own cult hit. But unfortunately for her, it looks like the best she can hope for is a spinoff… as second in command. Assuming Obama and Hillary can stomach and withstand the horror to be imparted by John McCain and the Republican campaign.
Thanks for the read, and I look forward to your comments.
