Obama winning overwhelmingly African American State of WYOMING
:sarcasm:

I swear, I was about to split my head open with all the talk of "White Democratic voters" somehow turning from Obama. As if they were more important than "other" voters.

2. It is insulting.
You'd think they want to go back to making Black's 3/5 of a person.

4. No effing kidding.
I swear I saw this reporter talking about the exit polls in Ohio. She was talking about Obama and Hillary support among Whites and AA's. She pointd out how much greater the support for Obama was among AA's, than Hillary's was among Whites. Then I swear she talked about Obama's support among working class Ohioans being lower than Hillary's and the exit poll question she was using literally said White voters!

9. Just Like Iowa
Obama knows how to run a grassroots level organization, and all the media saavy of the Clinton camp with their fear-and-smear can't compete with a sense of national spirit.

13. That alone makes me so proud of our country
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 01:29 PM by goclark
and OBAMA.

YES.HE.CAN! help the world to know that the "content of your character " is the reality and the reason for so many saying
WE.WANT.TO.BE.A>COLOR.BLIND.AND.A.GENDER.BLIND.SOCIETY

That is a huge message that we are sending to America and to the world.

To let this dream fail and let the same old "politics of Hillary" win is not a legacy that millions are saying they don't want anymore.

How long,not long,how long,not long!

15. Here's Lanny Davis on Why Only Ohio Counts..
http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0803/07/lkl.01.h...

KING: Lanny Davis, it's a simple yes or no, why doesn't she release her income tax returns?

DAVIS: The answer is yes, she will release her tax information since the year 2000 on April 15th. They're working on it. So the answer is yes.

And, if I could correct the record on what I heard before here, Larry, the facts are -- I have a great deal of respect for Senator Obama. He inspires a lot of young people and he's a great candidate. But he's not ready to be president, according to the voters of every major state, in the exit polls and in the hard data that are not disputable.

In Ohio, more than 60 percent of the voters thought that Senator Clinton was ready to be commander-in-chief. Only 30 percent thought that Senator Obama. That's a fact, Larry.

On the stewardship of the economy, in a landslide victory in the bellwether state of Ohio, more than two-thirds of the voters thought that Hillary Clinton was a better steward of the economy, as compared to about one third to Obama.


KING: Then --

DAVIS: That's the issue he's got to address. All the attacks that -- it's really ironic to hear kitchen sink used by my good old friend, David Wilhelm. We see Senator Obama, immediately out of Ohio, rather than addressing whether he's ready to be commander-in-chief and can take care of the economy, which is why he lost by a landslide in that important state, he starts attacking Hillary Clinton on tax returns, for goodness sakes, when, for 20 years, the Clintons' financial information has been fully disclosed. And as governor...

KING: OK, I want to --

DAVIS: ...and as first lady, it's been disclosed throughout the (INAUDIBLE).

KING: All right, I want to get...

DAVIS: It's kind of silly.

DAVIS: Some of the words that I hear used from the Politics of Hope campaign, like slipperiness and secrecy and personalized words like monster -- I'm here to talk about facts and facts only. And the fact is that Senator Obama and now my friend, John Wilhelm, is opposed to universal health care, which this party has stood for since Harry Truman. He would leave out 15 million people. That's a fact.

Senator Obama voted for the Dick Cheney energy bill and Hillary Clinton opposed it. That's a fact. In the State of Ohio, a bellwether state, as well as in the State of Texas, blue collar voters, senior citizens -- the Democratic core base supported Hillary Clinton by substantial margins. That's a fact.

The reason is that people are seeing Senator Obama as not ready to be president by overwhelming margins of Democrats. That's a fact. And he ought to be addressing those facts...

17. There is some weird east-west split
The west and northwest are overwhelmingly for Obama. The east seems to depend on state demographics. The southwest is Latinos. At least we have a better idea of what's up in this country and how we need to combat it.
