At this point, even Hillary Clinton's supporters have to know how bad for her party it would be if she somehow pulled off a win.

Imagine for a second the impossible happens, and Hillary Clinton wins the nomination. The unlikely event could only happen through a back room deal at this point that either suddenly convinced most of the "Super Delegates" to vote for her or else she talked the credentials committee into counting the unauthorized primary data from the two state in dispute.

I can't imagine it happening, but if it did -- tell me that an entire generation of his supporters won't feel completely blown off. Now tell me she doesn't see that.

Not an entire generation of supporters, Andrew, but an large swath of the long
term Democratic "base". There are a lot of African-Americans who (if Hillary
somehow manages to get the super delegates to give her the nomination), will
see it as "The Man" teasing them with the hope of real change for the better,
and then taking it away when it looks like it might actually happen. My
feeling is that a lot of those voters will stay home on election day should
that come to pass, which would probably give McCain the presidency.
