Hillary Clinton Makes History

by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Well, she finally did it. It's an amazing feat that has many people astonished.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has become the first person to win a major party's presidential nomination while under investigation by the FBI.

Oh, and she's also the first female nominee too.

Clinton carried four of six states up for grabs last night, including California. Polls had shown the California race was essentially tied. But when the votes were counted, it wasn't close. Clinton won the Golden State by 13 points -- 56% to 43%.

Clinton also won New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota. Sanders claimed victories in Montana and North Dakota.

With her victories last night, Clinton's delegate count surged to 2,755 -- well beyond the 2,382 needed to win. It's worth noting, however, that she has only 2,184 pledged delegates won through the primary process. Superdelegates, who can change their minds until the ballots are cast at the convention, are the ones putting her over the top.

By the way, Donald Trump made history last night too. In the course of this primary contest, Trump shattered the record for the most votes won by a candidate seeking the Republican presidential nomination.

Barring some unpredictable development, the November election will be a choice between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Libertarian Gary Johnson and perhaps a center-right spoiler candidate in some states.

A new NBC News tracking poll finds Clinton leading Trump 48% to 44%. But when you factor in third-party candidates, the dynamics change significantly.

Offering voters the choice of Libertarian and Green Party candidates results in Trump leading with 40%, Clinton at 39%, Libertarian Johnson at 9% and Green Party nominee Jill Stein at 4%. If voters are given a generic choice of "other" option, the results are Trump 39%, Clinton 36% and "Other" 22%.

There is talk of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) being the spoiler candidate. As you may know, Graham first adamantly opposed Trump. Then he seemingly came to grips with Trump as the GOP nominee, but is now withdrawing his support. [Editor Note: How many GOP delegates did Lindsey Graham win including his home state? Zero.]

The controversy surrounding Donald Trump's concerns about a potentially biased judge continues to simmer. The reason it remains in the news is that many GOP leaders are reprising a familiar role -- at the first sign of controversy, they form a circular firing squad. These leaders have turned their guns on Trump, thus pleasing the national media and Hillary Clinton.

People of goodwill can disagree with what Trump said about Judge Curiel. I believe legitimate concerns have been raised about the judge's fairness.

But how is it that GOP leaders were unable or unwilling to point out the obvious: Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Big Media and the entire left-wing establishment in America from university campuses to Hollywood regularly divide America by race and ethnicity.

The left routinely suggests that any policeman, judge, professor, police chief or even a simple individual is suspect merely because he is Caucasian. Isn't that what is driving the notions of "white privilege" and "systemic racism"?

For example, if a white policeman uses force against a black suspect, the left's knee-jerk assumption is that the officer's action was motivated by his ethnicity and racism.

Almost every day there is another story from the insane asylums we currently refer to as universities where left-wing students refuse to study the classics or learn about our Founding Fathers, derisively referred to as dead white men with nothing relevant to offer minority students or today's young progressives.

When a judge like Clarence Thomas rules against quota systems, he is attacked as a traitor to his race. In other words, the left says that if you are a black judge you have to rule in favor of its racial perception of what is good for blacks.

I have no doubt that the left would similarly excoriate any Hispanic judge who favored strong border security and tough enforcement of our immigration laws as "anti-Hispanic."

Given that the left has regrettably injected identity politics into our discourse, is it really beyond the pale for Donald Trump to express concerns that a Hispanic judge might have difficulty being fair with a candidate who wants to secure the southern border?

After all, a "wise Latina" once suggested that ethnicity did, and should, play a role in judging cases.

All of which brings me to the more important point. I have been doing a lot of traveling lately so perhaps I missed it, but when was the last time that Speaker Ryan, Leader McConnell and senators like Bob Corker, Jeff Flake, Mark Kirk and others who jumped on Trump launched a newsworthy attack on Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama?

As GOP leaders isn't that what they should be doing?
