Top Ten Cloves: Other Metrics The Clinton Campaign Will Suggest, In Order For Hillary To Gain Nomination

News Item: The latest in a series of metrics: how about the electoral-college vote?

10. Nomination should go to the candidate that has "HRC" in the initials of their name

9. Whichever candidate that has a spouse named "Bill"

8. The candidate whose last name comes first, alphabetically

7. Because the sun rose this morning

6. The candidate who motivated a strike, by Daily Kos diarists

5. Test Hillary, and Obama, on who can say "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers; A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked;If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?", real fast, three times, without stumbling

4. The candidate that has the most experience with serving as First Lady

3. Have both candidate watch the movie, "The Big Sleep" and first to figure out "Where's Sean Regan? ... Why did Eddie Mars hide is wife out to make it look like she ran off Regan" gets the nomination

2. The one that has a child - a daughter - with the same name as a section of New York City

1. Whoever isn't being endorsed by someone that looks like Rod Steiger in Doctor Zhivago, and startles Peggy Noonan
