***HILLARY TAKES PENNSYLVANIA!***
Edited on Tue Apr-22-08 08:38 PM by Maddy McCall
CONGRATS, HILLARY!
:bounce:THANK YOU, PENNSYLVANIA!! :bounce:









The original thread title was based on Terry McCauliffe's statement. Since I can't verify this, I'm editing to the present title. Trust me, the personal attacks below had no influence on my decision to edit.

119. No, in this case a win is actually a loss. She is a loser but no one has the guts to tell her.
So instead they allow her vanity to continue to help the Republicans frame our candidate in the general election- Senator Obama.
Where is the blow out win she needed to justify staying in the race?

I'm African-American and Obama has ZERO chance of pulling me away from my support for Hillary UNLESS he gets the nomination. Everyone in my family also supports Hillary. Unlike the whack-jobs here we remember the Clinton years fondly.

62. Caucuses are not the primary reason that delegates are used.
Each state wants a proportional say in the presidential contest. Irregularities in the voting process, access to voting stations, primary/caucus formats, open/close contests, media perceptions of landslides, the amount of time candidates can campaign in a state prior to an election, the media's portrayl of the importance of a contest, the voting registration process....etc, etc, etc....

All affects TURNOUT (a concept that is used to show why caucuses aren't represented properly in the "popular tally").

TURNOUT is dependent in primaries on numerous variables that are often uncontrollable to candidates and voters themselves. These variables would skew the state's ability to represent itself (and its constituents) if a popular vote was used. Hence, a delegate count is used to enfranchise the state in the process.

The intresting thing is (despite what Wolf Blitzer may say), SDs know this.

I have no problem with Hillary winning PA, since she was always expected to do so. But I think that when everyone has voted, he'll still be ahead.

Trying to rationalize that someone wins a popular vote when they run unopposed, or the opposition doesn't campaign is ignoring reality.

29. How do you make that out? Numbers don't agree
Extrapolating from CNN with ~10% of the votes in, she might get 150,000 more votes tonight. That's less than Obama's lead even with Florida and Michigan included (per Real clear politics, and if you have to rely on her Michigan votes to boost her #s, that's sad).

you should have continued to listen.....McCauliff then had to qualify it with a ton of what ifs...she won't pull ahead.

That's alright, though. Specious untruths is what you specialize in.

She needs 70% of the rest of the delegates.....

1 & 1 still equals 2. She will not be close in the popular vote. Are you another girl who says she can't do math. I fight that all the time with my sixth grade girls. They believe that because that is what their parents tell them that math isn't for girls. I explain to them that that is a sexist statement and girls can do math just as well as boys.

Add up the numbers she will not be ahead.

71. That's factually inaccurate. He's leading by 800,000.

75. Hard truth: You used to have a clear Obama lead
and now you've got muddy water. Tonight breathes new life into the Hillary camp. We can bring the popular vote to the fore, and we can win this game.

83. There isnt any muddy water
because the only votes that are legitimate are those that are cast legally within the process where all parties agreed to rules before hand. The only people who argue that the water is muddy are those with a political agenda to push one candidate over another.

It's going to matter.

And everyone here has an agenda.

121. That doesn't change it's illegitimacy
nor does Fox News echoing a talking point change Dem primary regulations already pre-established and agreed upon by everyone. If Hillary cannot win within the pre-established rules she agreed to and with her lack of being able to show a shift towards a rejection of Obama, i think this angle only hurts the Dem Party as a whole by working to push voters out of the party from those states by trying to foster animosity by having it displaced at Obama when both states violated the rules.

109. Nice pic, but what exactly are you celebrating?
The Goddess of War wants to start a nuclear holocaust and she hates and rejects democratic activists. She's a fearmonger and a warmonger.

She also lies to our face (along with her husband) whenever she can get away with it.

These are not the values that we fought so hard for over the past 7+ years. If the Goddess somehow becomes the nominee, the party will be fractured beyond repair.

Again, what are you celebrating?
