A Tacit Admission from Senator Clinton

Anne Kornblut is correct in describing Hillary Clinton's challenge to Barack Obama to share the stage in four weekly debates following Super Tuesday as an acknowledgement that the Senator from New York "does not expect to sweep up tonight." However, one might go one step forward. Traditionally, the candidate pushing for debates is the one who is behind -- and the more behind one is, the more debates the candidate insists upon. Sen. Clinton has already shown a degree of desperation by pushing for the restoration of delegates in Florida and Michigan, in defiance of the enforcement of Democratic Party rules. By this call for frequent debates, she is revealing, correctly or incorrectly, that as things now stand she does not believe she will win.
