James Carville is now calling Obama the likely winner:
Speaking to students at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, Carville argued Clinton should stay in through the final nominating contest in early June, but said the Democratic tide appears to be moving in Obama’s direction.
“I still hear some dogs barking,” Carville said, according to The State newspaper. “I’m for Senator Clinton, but I think the great likelihood is that Obama will be the nominee.”
“As soon as I determine when that is, I’ll send him a check,” he added.
Carville has been, and continues to be, one of Clinton’s staunchest supporters. Until now, he has not wavered. It’s great that, now that he has, he follows it up by telling us he’ll be right there with Obama when the nominating process is complete. That’s a lot classier than we can expect from a lot of her supporters.
