Bill Clinton: "Cover-Up" Killing Hillary's Chances

Slick Willy will blame Karl Rove in 4 . . 3 . . 2 . .

(CNN) -- Former President Bill Clinton said that Democrats were more likely to lose in November if Hillary Clinton is not the nominee, and suggested some were trying to "push and pressure and bully" superdelegates to make up their minds prematurely.

"I can't believe it. It is just frantic the way they are trying to push and pressure and bully all these superdelegates to come out," Clinton said at a South Dakota campaign stop Sunday, in remarks first reported by ABC News.

Clinton also suggested some were trying to "cover up" Sen. Clinton's chances of winning in key states that Democrats will have to win in the general election.

"'Oh, this is so terrible: The people they want her. Oh, this is so terrible: She is winning the general election, and he is not. Oh my goodness, we have to cover this up.'"

Clinton did not expound on who he was accusing.

"Her only position was, 'Look, if I lose I'll be a good team player. We will all try to win, but let's let everybody vote, and count every vote,' " he said. (H/T - CNN)

Count every vote. What a novel idea. I have a better one. How about you have your party ditch the superdelegate shenanigans, allow the candidate who wins the state to win all of the state's delegates, and let the people decide?
