Hillary Clinton has repeatedly compared to herself to Rocky Balboa, the pugnacious Philadelphian who never gave up. (Wags, of course, responded by saying Rocky lost his fight to a younger, famous black man.)

But if we are coming to the end of the road for the Clinton campaign, we would be derelict in not offering this clip up, if only because it encapsulates everything that has gone on during the past few months.

It helps if you liken Rocky climbing up the ropes to Clinton’s win in Ohio. Oh, and you also have to pretend Talia Shire is Howard Dean. Then it all works.
