"The Democratic primary is over. Hillary Clinton might still run in West Virginia and Kentucky, which she'll win handily, but by failing to win Indiana decisively and by losing North Carolina decisively, she lost the argument for her own candidacy. She can't surpass Barack Obama's delegate or popular vote count. The question is no longer who will be the Democratic nominee, but whether Obama can defeat Republican John McCain in November. And the answer to that is still unclear."

-- John B. Judas in the New Republic after Tuesdays primary elections in Indiana and North Carolina

Clinton may not admit that she has lost and that Obama will be the nominee, but that should not stop the rest of us from accepting reality and moving on to help Barack become our next president.
