Chuckling makes another bold prediction

Just about everybody in the news media has noted that the math does not support Hillary Clinton's chance of winning the Democratic nomination. Broder does the honors this morning:

How then does Hillary Clinton hope to win? Her fate rests entirely on the last uncommitted superdelegates, the roughly 75 members of Congress and 150 party officials who have not picked sides.

I'm not saying those people have problems with their computational skills. It's just that counting primary votes or delegates will not necessarily be the math that matters.

I'm predicting that "5" will be the number that wins it for Hillary. That's what you get when you add up Scalia, Thomas, Roberts, Alito and Kennedy. She should have it wrapped up sometime around mid-October at the latest.
