8. She was outspent because of the massive donations. Obama wasn't even suppossed to win Pa
She was ahead by over 20 points

It didn't work out that way, did it?

Why do you think she was outspent?

As far as your bullshit, you are just reusing the talking point that has been coming from the MSM, you could at least give credit to the MSM

As far as "partial credit system", it was bill clinton, you remember bill clinton don't you, who one because of that system

I will vote for whoever the Democratic nominee is, but when the primaries are over, and if she is still behind, and continues to take this to the convention, her true colors will be obvious, and that is not the country or the party, but just her lust for power.

This is a fight to change the party internaly, from the "established" NAFTA, republican Carville agenda, to a new direction
