Tell Me Clinton Supporters: What Comes After Pennsylvania?
This was brought up by one of the panelists on Tim Russert's show this morning and it's a good point. Pennsylvania is the last state with over 100 pledged delegates. Let's even say hypothetically that Hillary Clinton wins...it won't be a huge win like she'll need delegate-wise. So what comes afterward? Where are the goalposts moved to then? About a clear half of those that will be remaining are strong for Obama.

13. Obama's website says NC is 91 pledged delegates so I guess it is less then 100 but
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 03:10 PM by Pirate Smile
that is still a pretty big state.

Yes, North Carolina Will Count.

Pennsylvania is not the be all, end all.

Clinton should win Penn. pretty easily but she wont put much of a dent in the pledged delegate race and there are other states that are just as important.

Just because the Clinton campaign likes to pick out one or two states and say they are the only ones that matter (and the media frequently follows along) doesn't make it true.

16. Obama will take NC...
every poll I've seen shows that. I mean, where does Hillary go in states that are favorable to her? NC is not favorable to her.

Maybe letting the Supreme Court decide? Perhaps she will file a slander suit for being called a "monster" too. :shrug:

14. ack, poor thing
still deluding yourself that Obama doesn't win primaries. Too bad he's won as many as hill and NC will be a strong state for him. The bottom line is that when all the voting is over she'll still be 100+ pledged delegates behind him.

28. all of them. It's hardly his fault that Clinton squandered her money on
assholes like Penn. She's raised a huge amount of money, and wasted it.

32. Cali....She wasn't competative financially, in several states, and you know it.

27. The convention? She's got it split. She will continue to keep it split. Neither can win without...
...the superdelegates.

Simple fact.
