Thread: Obama the big winner

    Obama the big winner

    I am a supporter of Obama so I am biased but I was impressed by the range of wins last night. He won the mid-west, the south, the northeast and MN. Look at the states that Senator Clinton won - NY, NJ, CA, states in which she was heavily favored by more than 20 points only weeks ago.



    After last night's primaries, Obama is in a virtual tie with Clinton for delegates, her only edge are the superdelegates. Most importantly, Obama has momentum on his side in two important areas: fundraising capability and upcoming primaries that he should do well in - NE, WA, and LA. Next tuesday, the Potomac primary should put Obama over the top in delegates with MD, VA, and DC voting.


    Sen. Clinton did not win in the south, the only 2 exceptions were her former home state of AR and Gore's home state of TN. She is not electable in states that have significant numbers of Reagan Democrats or independents (the mid-west and the border states). Obama proved that he is electable in purple and blue states.



    One significant point that none of the pundits mentioned last night... Clinton only won CA 52% to 42%, if Obama had won CA (in which he was not even in play two months ago) this race would be over.

    Obama reminds me of "the little engune that could". he isn't phased nor dismayed, he doesn't say "I can't", he says "yes WE can".

    Well you know, the media keeps telling America that although close, Clinton walked away the winner. I think Obama got more delegates last night and continues to surge.

    I even heard one guy, say it is looking more and more like Clinton will get nominated. I thought, that's not true, it is looking more and more like Obama is going to pull this off!

    I think we totally kicked her ass last night!!

    Go Obama!!!

    How about those red states?

    Yes - a couple of thoughts:

    a) brokered convention?

    b) super-delegates: I've been compiling a list of all the Dem super-delegates I can get my hands on, using starting points like this: BetterDonkey.org - AND, I've written each and every one of them that I could identify, saying basically, "please don't make me vote for Hillary Clinton". Some of these delegates, are "already committed", but the rest of 'em, they're mostly party officials and elected representatives, so, it is LIKELY, that they would listen to the voice of the People, if it's loud enough.

    Um... how can I say this - I am watching very carefully, the perceptual bit around Obama right now. There's a whole interesting psychology to it. They call that, "bouncing around", in the world of political strategists. So, what kinda happens, is that first time people see a guy like Obama, they get sucked up into the "change" thing, and maybe even end up clapping their hands and stomping their feet a little. The second time they see they guy, they're lookin' at a little minority kid who somehow became a US Senator, and they're kinda bouncing everything they're hearing and seeing, through the "BS filter", right? To see if it "checks out"? Now they're being "skeptical", right? Well, then the third time they see the guy, they're finally trying to imagine what he'd actually be like, as President of the United States! See?

    I mean this stuff is rich, I live for this stuff! Stuff like that just [U}makes my day[/U]!!! I have an advanced degree in comparative religion, and my interest is not so much "religion", as it is "belief". I study the way "belief" works, in human beings. That's my political "shtick" too, is the "belief" angle, you know - I wanna to know how "Kool-Aid" works, and the whole nine yards.

    So I mean, yeah.... this is gonna be GREAT!!! There is LOTS of popcorn and beer in my future!!!

    GO OBAMA!!!

    He's a good man, that one. I hope he becomes President!

    It would appear that he has the Big Mo right now. I hope your enthusiasm is correct. I think this country is in dire need of REAL change. We need to get our honor back. That's the way to fight terrorism. Through diplomatic efforts and keeping our word as it relates to dealings with other nations.
    Under Bushco, we've become a joke to the international community and we are widely viewed as predatory, expansionist and hypocritical. And, these feelings are felt by a lot of Americans too.

    Re: Obama the big winner

    I believe that Obama is "a good man" & will vote for him in the primaries because I fully believe that he would do all he could to bring people together. I don't mean politicians, nothing short of a miracle could do that, but everyday people. I won't vote for him in the general, I won't vote for anyone in the general, because I can't vote for a liberal. I won't vote for a liberal, but IMO, Obama would be a helluva lot better than Hillary, & McCain will be the GOP nominee, he'll get the votes of most republicans, but not the real conservatives, I believe that many conservatives will stay home in the general election. So, it will come down to McCain-v-Obama or Hillary, I am going to do my part to keep Hillary out.

    I don't see how the results of Super Tuesday could be seen as anything but an Obama win. Sounds like all the crying the Clinton campaign did to the media about their apparent negative coverage of Hillary is paying off and the media is caving in.

    The media's affinity for the Clinton's is incredible. Even Foxis behind them. Probably because she is the GOP's best shot. I think they are looking across the board, and are scared to fucking death of the Obama movement.

    Clinton is beatable.

    How do you fight a movement?
