WASHINGTON … The lights were out in the media filing center at Hillary Clinton headquarters in Indianapolis Tuesday night, and perhaps it was symbolic.
Because to hear the pundits tell it, Tuesday was lights-out for the Clinton campaign.
Hoping for a big win in the Indiana primary and maybe even a surprise in North Carolina, Clinton instead narrowly beat Barack Obama in the Hoosier State while losing by double digits down south.
That meant Clinton fell farther behind in the race for delegates -- and will have to win a whopping 68 percent of them the rest of the way to claim the Democratic presidential nomination.
Obama, in contrast, will have to win a mere 37 percent.
Not surprisingly, then, former Sen. George McGovern Wednesday called on Clinton to leave the race, and even her supporters were choosing their words carefully when asked whether she should continue.
And all that leads me to paraphrase the late, great Joe Strummer, of the late, great band, the Clash:
Should she stay or should she go now?
