Clinton Camp Hammers Obama Over Popular Vote, Raises Specter Of McGovern

Politico's Mike Allen reports that the Clinton campaign continues to hammer the argument over Clinton's alleged popular vote lead:

Howard Wolfson tells Playbook that the Clinton campaign will pushing a popular-vote message hard for the next 72 hours: "When the voting concludes on Tuesday, more Americans will have voted for Senator Clinton than Senator Obama. The last time the Democrats didn't give the nomination to the candidate who won the most votes was in 1972." (George McGovern over Hubert Humphrey.)
