"McAuliffe: If Obama Gets Magic Number, Hillary Will Concede" (Updated w/video)
UPDATE: Here's the video from MSNBC (04:51).
Greg Sargent (TPM Election Central):
Did Hillary campaign chair Terry McAuliffe just reveal that Hillary will concede defeat when Obama clinches the magic number of 2,118 delegates?Howie P.S.: You can say that again.
He certainly appeared to do just that this morning on The Today Show. Here's the exchange...
QUESTION: If Barack Obama reaches that number today or tomorrow do you believe that Sen. Clinton is prepared to concede?
McAULIFFE: Yeah, I think that if Sen. Obama gets the numbers, I think Hillary Clinton will congratulate him, and call him the nominee.
The tell there, I think, is that the questioner asked specifically what she would do if Obama hit the number today or tomorrow. And McAuliffe clearly said, Yes, she'll concede.
We'll see what happens.
