CNBC business analyst Mark Hanes delivered the economic news on MSNBC, then asked host Joe Scarborough to explain why Hillary Clinton isn’t being given more credit for narrowly winning the primary in Indiana, where some early polls had showed Obama leading.
Scarborough explained that Clinton failed to meet recent expectations and that, just as with corporate earning statements, that’s what counts.
“You don’t want this to end, do you?” Hanes asked in conclusion.
“Of course not,” Scarborough replied. “I want the Stones’ Street Fighting Man played in the background while I monitor the streets of Denver with tear gas, the ghost of Abbie Hoffman rising up over the auditorium. Yeah, baby, I want a fight — on both sides”
