Plutarch and the Obama campaign

Adam B, one of dailykos's resident lawyers, has a great post up with a quote from an unusual source: Plutarch in 75 AD.

He concludes with this:

Let us remember, please, what it took to get Sen. Clinton to her narrow delegate victory (at best) last night: skipping the eleven previous contests and losing big in each, then going all-in for one last battle.

Well, guess what -- contrary to what she said on The Daily Show this week (FF to 1:20 in or so), the "next state" is not Pennsylvania -- it's Wyoming. Then Mississippi. She will lose them both, and these voters count. Don't let her tell you otherwise.

Right now, she is broke.

Right now, she doesn't want you to think anything matters for six weeks.

Right now, she doesn't want you to pay attention to Obama's pledged delegate lead, because right now, we are winning significantly.

Right now, we have already dusted last night off our shoulders.

Right now, we have won twelve of the last fifteen contests.

Right now, Clinton's campaign leadership and finances are in disarray.

Right now, she cannot afford a fifty-state strategy.

Right now, we are strong.

Right now, if you can give $10, $25, $50, $100 or more, we will be even stronger.

Right now, you can tell a superdelegate why you're supporting Barack Obama.

Right now, you can help us write the next chapter in American history. Join us.
