Clinton: Small states don't matter...

Except when they do.

From a memo the HRC campaign released to the press ahead of WV:

"Given the attempts by our opponent and some in the media to declare this race over, any significant increase in voter turnout, coupled with a decisive Clinton victory, would send a strong message that Democrats remain excited and energized by Hillary's candidacy."

But let's turn back the dial on our time machine to see what she and her campaign had to say about small states:

Feb 11:
She also downplayed many of Obama's Super Tuesday victories, describing them as states that Democrats should not expect to win in November.

Feb. 13
"Could we possibly have a nominee who hasn't won any of the significant states -- outside of Illinois?" Chief Strategist Mark Penn said. "That raises some serious questions about Sen. Obama."

Feb 24:
After Maryland and Virginia voted for Barack Obama, we found out that our mid-Atlantic votes "didn't really count" in the eyes of the Clinton campaign's chief, Mark Penn.

Apparently, small states only matter when Clinton wins in them. So which is it Hillary? Do small states matter or what? Wait. No need to answer that, because NO state matters anymore. YOU'VE ALREADY LOST! But congratulations anyway.
