Quixotic campaign

I am not sure exactly why, but this word-of-the day seemed rather apropos of the Democratic primary campaign:

    *1 : foolishly impractical especially in the pursuit of ideals; especially : marked by rash lofty romantic ideas or extravagantly chivalrous action

     2 : capricious, unpredictable

Example Sentence

     Marta has been desperately trying to convince her friends to give up their cars and computers and return to nature on Earth Day, but it has been a quixotic crusade.

So, who is leading the more quixotic political campaign, Hillary pursuing what many believe to be a lost cause or Barack with his lofty and romantic but impractical ideals?

Well, in less than 36 hours the esteemed and belittled bitter voters of Pennsylvania should have an answer for us.
