Jay Cost takes up the cause of arguing that the West Virginia and Kentucky primaries matter.  That now makes two of us.  Cost goes out on a pretty sturdy limb:

Minimally, I will predict that West Virginia will be either her best or her second best finish, behind only Arkansas. Kentucky should come in right behind the two. This alone should be enough to induce some caution. I think it is too hasty to declare her finished just days before two of her three best states.

The problem for Democrats is that she is finished despite the fact that her two best states will reveal glaring problems with their presumptive nominee.  The superdelegates aren’t going to throw him overboard because of Kentucky and West Virginia, but their predicament is that they probably should but cannot and will not do it.
