"Here is what conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh said about the prospect of a continuing contest for the Democratic presidential nomination on the eve of the Ohio primary and the Texas primacaucuses that have - with “good enough” finishes for Hillary Clinton — assured the race will go on:
“We need Barack Obama bloodied up politically.”
Limbaugh explained to fellow right-wing gabber Laura Ingraham - yes, they are now interviewing each other — that Obama has gotten this far in his race for the presidency with most of his popular appeal intact. As such, he would be hard to beat as the Democratic nominee in a race with Republican John McCain.
“I want our party to win. I want the Democrats to lose. They’re in the midst of tearing themselves apart right now. It’s fascinating to watch, and it’s all going to stop if Hillary loses,” Limbaugh argued, as he suggested that Republicans in primary states should cross party lines to vote for Clinton.
Only by keeping Clinton in the race, Limbaugh explained, will it be possible to “sustain the soap opera” that might ultimately diminish Obama sufficiently to secure an undeserved Republican win in November. Well, the soap opera has been sustained."
