CNN Senior Political Correspondent
I believe in accordance with squatters' rights, I now own O'Hare airport.
I will spare you the dreary story of how I came to be sitting in seat 8-B on an overheated plane so small my computer bag wouldn't fit in the overhead, wearing the same clothes I had on the day before when I left Washington DC for Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Today's travel tip: AMTRAK
But wherever we are, here we are. The eve of the end.
The famous final scene? I'm thinking so...
I'm thinking after today the superdelegates will begin to fall his way and Obama goes over the top with delegates sometime this week. Or maybe the superdels will give her a couple days to do it on her own.... Either way then she would "suspend" her campaign to retain her delegates and some leverage and power to help shape things to come.
HRC said she wanted to wait until everyone votes. (Check) She said she wanted Michigan and Florida seated. (Half-check) She said she wanted somebody to reach the magic number of delegates to secure the nomination. (Future check) And everyone around her says she has absolutely no desire to tear the party in half. So I think we are nearly there.
She said Sunday night it's too early to talk about exit strategies... Monday, she's out here campaigning.
After it's over, we will begin the vice-presidential chatter with a long list of names often referred to as the "short list."
Uh-oh, this plane, roughly the size of a Chevy Suburban, is rolling down the runway.....
Signing off from 8-B.
One last thing. If you drop your cellphone in the toilet, it won't work anymore.
