Until the Last Dog Dies
Hillary Clinton’s supporters know their history.
Back in 1992, when Bill Clinton was a struggling presidential candidate facing questions about Gennifer Flowers, he promised a New Hampshire crowd that he would stick with them "until the last dog dies." The speech was a turning point: Bill Clinton placed second in New Hampshire, was dubbed the "Comeback Kid," and rode that wave all the way to the White House.
On Tuesday night, as Hillary Clinton celebrated her victory in West Virginia’s Democratic primary, a fan with a prime spot in the middle of the crowd held a big sign overhead that read, "until the last dog dies."
But if she was hoping for the same kind of turning point, the early signs aren’t good.
Barack Obama’s campaign was up early on Wednesday morning, announcing more superdelegate support: Christine Schon Marques, chair of Democrats Abroad (who actually only counts as half a superdelegate), and Indiana Rep. Pete Visclosky.
