Or, Is Hill Sabotaging Barry?

Earlier today, I posted regarding a clip of Obama’s post-primary speech last night. This afternoon, James Pethokoukis posts an analysis from Merrill Lynch’s David Rosenberg, who believes that Clinton may be trying to sabotage Obama ala the 1976 Ford/Reagan primary. Here’s the quote:

[The battle between Clinton and Obama] is highly reminiscent of the intense battle between Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan back in 1976 that also went all the way to the convention (Ford ended garnering barely more than 52% of the delegates)—and what happened when all was said and done was a Jimmy Carter victory as the GOP was still in healing mode during the presidential campaign (maybe this is why Hillary wants to take this to the finale—Reagan took the White House in resounding fashion in the next election in 1980).

Of course, we’ll all be hanging around to see what happens. One thing is for sure, it will certainly be entertaining.
