Cafferty: Clinton campaign in “alternate universe”?

It looks like some of Hillary Clinton's advisers may be avoiding the political writing on the wall.

He said they're "on the way to locking this nomination down", that they're "on the verge of their next up cycle" and that the race is quote "tight as a tick." This is called denial.

Next came anger in the person of Clinton spokesman Phil Singer, who ripped into the media when he was asked about that photo of Barack Obama wearing Somali tribal dress.
