So Bill Clinton gets on the conference call, and announces that “Hillary is only 16 pledged delegates behind.”
Oh wait, that’s only if you count states that had primaries (and presumably Michigan and Florida as well). “It’s the caucuses that are killing her,” he goes on to say.
It’s Clinton logic, again. If caucuses don’t work to our advantage, then don’t count them.
The rest of the call was focused on remedying the nine-vote deficit Hillary has in caucus delegates in Texas. But since those are caucus votes and not primary votes, does that mean that picking up those votes would make Hillary 7 pledged delegates behind? Yes–because caucuses count when Hillary wins them.
UPDATE: Talking Points Memo’s Election Central has the full story (and a better transcript than mine).
