The Fallacy Of Hillary Clinton's Campaign Inertia

The talking heads and wonks who all season have been echoing the Clinton talking points are today using inertia as justification for her to remain on the campaign trail. So, since she has been on a downward trajectory what will be required to stop her?
The notion that she is campaigning still because she has been and it takes a while to slow down, as though they were describing an oil tanker just doesn't make any sense at all. It is a completely bogus rationale. Her desperate cling to the process at this point only serves to make one recall her references to assassination, that even though she has lost..LOST LOST LOST she keeps hanging out, inviting or perhaps simply hoping for treachery or tragedy to befall Mr. Obama. I see nothing noble or honorable in it. Quite the opposite, it makes Clinton look as slimy and clutching as one can get, behavior one would never expect to see from someone who by some was considered a serious contender for our nations highest office.
So, as the party loyalists all have been shifting to the winner, Barack Obama after the final primary contests, leaving Clinton and her camp looking completely politically tone deaf and disconnected from reality all i can think is, where ever Clinton's inertia is taking her i just hope it is off the damn stage. Her campaign is like a manic depressive off their meds, a largely creepy and unfathomable affair.
