Keep your friends close and your enemies closer, as the old saying goes.
It would appear that former Clinton aides are taking the opportunity to roll over on her and, in this case, lay out a scenario in which she loses the Dem nomination to Bernie Sanders.
From Western Journalism:
Democratic strategist and former Bill Clinton adviser Doug Schoen laid out an increasingly plausible scenario whereby Hillary Clinton will not be the Democrat Party nominee.
Schoen made the case during a Thursday morning appearance on Fox News Channel, and in an op-ed in the Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal.
Schoen told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer, “Very simply, if she loses California, as is possible … if there is a finding of some culpability by the Justice Department in the email scandal, the super delegates may well move away from her, aided by what I’m sure will be a rule change proposal by Bernie Sanders.”
Schoen spelled out in his Wall Street Journal piece the change Sanders would seek is that super delegates would be required to vote at the convention for the candidate who won their state’s primary.
“If Mr. Sanders wins California, Montana and North Dakota on Tuesday and stays competitive in New Jersey, he could well be within 200 pledged delegates of Mrs. Clinton, making a vote in favor of the rules change on superdelegates more likely,” writes Schoen.

What do you think the odds are of this actually happening? As much as I want to believe we have a shot at removing Hillary from any chance for elected office, she does have a Teflon streak.
