I'm with Rush. . .

. . .on the whole Texas/Hillary thing. Allowing Obama to claim victory right now would free him up to reshape his campaign for the general election by tacking to the center. What we need is more bloodletting between the Democrats. What we need is to have her in the fight for as long as possible. Because, as long as Hillary has a shot in hell, she will continue to find ways to unite Republicans.

Obama simply doesn't inspire the passion among conservatives that Hillary Clinton does. He doesn't have the rich vein of easily mined opposition research material that Hillary Clinton has. He isn't surrounded by the readily remembered bogeymen that she is.

And, as long as Hillary is in the race, she can do much of the dirty work that John McCain would otherwise have to do. Now, McCain gets to sit back and take notes -- watching as the two of them tear each other limb-from-limb.

It's reminiscent of the old, low-budget professional wrestling matches I enjoyed so much as a child: two guys who hate each other beating one another to a pulp using folding metal chairs, foreign objects, illegal holds, and opportunities to engage in all manner of chicanery while the referee is incapacitated after having been knocked temporarily unconscious by a man careening helplessly off the ropes, only to have a "fresh" wrestler who hates both of them come into the ring in his street clothes and whip the tar out of both of them.

Oh, yes. This is going to be good.
