Obama is on the rocks .... just look how bad things are.

He has the lead in.

Voters
states won
delegates won
and will very shortly have the lead in Super Delegates.

And if the repugs want to bring up Pastor Wright
McCain is in bed w/ Rod Parsley who is a big bucket
of crazy and he is a con man to boot.

Hillary is mathematically out of the race too.

41. Hillary need to score at least 64% of the vote the rest of the way
if she wants to have even a chance of stealing it. That makes Obama's magic number 37. Besides, there's nearly 15% unaccounted for in those numbers.

it's a one day sample from a 3 day tracking poll.
do a little research into the poll you are touting before you make bold assertions.

But we as Democrats need to recognize this for what it is. This is a swiftboat attack, a right wing smear that we should all be standing together against regardless of candidate preference.

If we were closer to you in intelligence we might realize that hopelessness is the future, that black folk ought to know their place, that political royalty is the governance model that will solve our problems, that being owned by the same people who Republicans is the secret to success, that trying to eviscerate your primary opponent to try and assure that he loses in the general is a neat strategy, that negative gutter campaigning is "the fun part".

Maybe, someday, one can hope, eh?

37. If the do not... the AA community leaves the Dem party... and Hillary loses...


She can't win the nomination, without losing the GE any longer.


She can only win the nomination by destroying the Dem party's most loyal voting block.


At this point... the ONLY Dem that can BOTH win the nomination AND the GE is Obama.


I suspect you know this... and you are just working to make sure 2012 is in play for Hillary.

Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 03:49 PM by MNDemNY
believe just the opposite, that Obama can not win the GE. I am not now, nor ever been a big fan of Hillary, but as one who wants a Democrat in the White House, I do not want Obama to win the nomination, my best case would be to head into the convention deadlocked, with the deadlock broken by the Nomination for President going to a real Democrat. Al Gore.

57. "The Path to 911" was a concerted effort that many people on DU
used to link to a Truthout article dispelling the myths that were contained in the silly ABC 9/11 drama: The Path to 9/11.. The "film" made horrendous leaps in logic, and went so far to almost blame 9/11 on President Clinton. Many on DU put that link in their sig lines as a "google bomb" to get the truth, you, know, out there. If you're interested on reading the article:
http://www.truthout.org/cgi-bin/artman/exec/view.cgi/63...

It's not a :tinfoilhat: to say the least.
