1. Rove was the first to recognize and exploit that laziness
No suprise that camp Clinton has done the same.

4. Obama needs to get his war room working
Not being dirty....... but feeding them as much information as the Clinton team does.

6. Yes they need to learn very quickly how to control the media
The Republican and Clinton both know how, and if camp Obama doesn't learn quickly he will be in trouble.

2. Yes, they are now parroting what Hillary said in her rally yesterday almost
word for word. Obama has an unfair advantage in caucus states, so they don't count. They are doing an entire segment on this.

5. It really is unbelievable. Hillary chastises the press, scolds them like an angry 1st grade teacher
and they do backwards flips to get in her good graces.

What a bunch of sycophants they are (with a few stellar exceptions).
The current crop of reporters don't have the collective integrity to match one of Helen Thomas's cuticles clippings.

3. I watched earlier and they had a screen up saying why Obama won today
and it was like Hillary was saying it herself..... Caucus don't let working people participate, blah blah.


They liked him better so he won!!

19. She can't use that as an excuse in TX
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 03:22 PM by rainbow4321
Since ours was at night and in my precinct alone there were 120 people. Most looking exhausted from their workday, then their TWO HOUR wait in line to vote, then a TWO HOUR DELAY in the start of the caucus voting. One lady got there at 4:30 to vote, finally got to vote at 6:30 and then stuck around til 10:30 when our caucus was over.

** My day ** started with a root canal visit to the dentist, then going to work, got off at 6 pm, got to the caucus at 7 pm, only to be told it would not start til 9 pm.


The people I saw there were running on excitement/passion...tired but leaving was not an option for them. Our precinct went for Obama around 90-30.

HRC is an idiot..working people WILL figure something out if they really want to get something done...even if it means an 18 hour day away from home!

12. The press can be bought for donuts. Why do you think the Clinton
campaign had such big bills for donuts?

13. They just played her "voters don't understand the caucus system"
Basically she implied it as the reason she can't win caucuses...nice way to INSULT voters' intelligence! She was doing a stump speech and asked the crowd "how many of you have caucused before? Not many, probably".

15. Total distortion
They took what Gooldsbee is alleged to have said to the Canadians and put it verbatim in Samantha Powers' mouth on Iraq. She never said that it was more politics than policy...she said his timetables might have to be flexible depending on the circumstances. Sloppy journalism at its worst!

18. And this surprises you about CNN?
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 03:20 PM by depakid
This is how they've been for over a decade. Just program their worthless channels off the TV, alongside Fox, the fundies and the spam channels.
