Just thought I'd ask

It's probably a foregone conclusion, but I'm in the middle of working 60 hours this week and have nothing better to put up here right now. Besides, you may surprise me...

The inevitability of the whole thing is starting to bug me a bit; we'd be advised to heed the wise words of Mario Cuomo:

But the Democratic process has been very, very flawed. In its design, it’s supposed to go through to the end to a convention, and at the convention is the only place where the votes count. Most people don’t understand that all the counts that have already been— all the contests that have already been held did not produce votes. They produced pledges, which probably would be lived up to at the convention.

Once upon a time, the conventions meant something. They may again this year.
