I’m nervous. I can’t even focus on today. I fully expect Obama to lose all 4 contests. I’m prepared for that.
The Clinton’s campaign has dominated every news cycle these past couple of weeks on the strength of whining lies and negative press. The lowball tactic of lying is a total turnoff and I can’t believe people are 1) seriously addressing these lies and 2) willing to ignore them to vote these two back in office.
I’ve been seeing different numbers for who is going to win today in these contests and of course, the polls are crazy. I still find it amazing that in two short weeks Sen. Obama went from a 30+ deficit in Texas to leading in some polls. Ohio, he went from a 27 point deficit to a 4 point deficit. That’s simply amazing.
Like I said, I won’t even begin to guess. I’m a Democrat and I’m used to disappointment. I am eagerly looking forward to the spin. If Obama wins the “big” states of Texas and Ohio, I would love to hear the Hillbots and Mark Penn how much those states don’t count or how a primary and caucus are unfair. If the Clinton’s win those states even by a 1pt. margin, I know that the spin will be how Clinton “came back” even though she lead with 25+ points two weeks ago and 11 – 15 points one week ago.
Whatever they come up with, they’ll figure out someway to push the firewall back (for the 5th time) to April 22nd when Pennsylvania votes. Man, I’m dumbstruck by the size of these egos. So, just be prepared for 7 weeks of Clinton lies, whines and turd drops.
Word on the
street blogs is that the Obama campaign has up to 50 superdelegate endorsements to roll out starting today. Considering that the Clinton’s have lost 4 superdelegates in 2 days (one died though), I can’t wait to see how many they’ll announce these next few days.
Also, remember how the Clinton’s campaign announced that they raised $35M for Feb.? Which is still less than what Obama raised in January, but we’ll set that aside for now…anyway, I’ve read that the Obama campaign is set to announce they raised between $40 – $50M for February. I even saw in one news article that it was up to $75M, though that’s just ridiculous, IMO.
Uh. Oh yeah, the GOP is also having primaries in the same states. McCain is leading by a million points, so we should be happy that we won’t have Pastor President Huckabee. No Handmaiden’s Tale for us. Yet.
