Primary Day




“In the end, ... that's what this election is about. Do we participate in a politics of cynicism, or do we participate in a politics of hope?” -- Barack Obama

Did you see him on the Colbert Report on Sunday night? Hilarious. He makes my heart sing.

I dunno, I still think McCain is pretty freaking hot.

For some reason I can't comment on the "Talking Points" post, but let me say here:
1. Loved the talking points!
2. Hate Hill's voice!
3. Declare Now, Supers!
4. Franklin is kidding, isn't he???

So, what I'm understanding from the talking points, Obama will go into the remaining primaries with an insurmountable lead in pledged delegates, a strong lead in the popular vote, and a huge advantage in fundraising ability.

Do I have it correct?

Today I ordered two "knitters for Obama" stickers today from cafepress.com!

Too bad Obama will only have "an insurmountable lead in pledged delegates, a strong lead in the popular vote, and a huge advantage in fundraising ability." He must be so worried.

That said, thank goodness not everyone is like the pretty blonde I overheard in a Books-a-Million this evening. Check my last post for that unbelievable conversation.

Talking points?
Or merely mathematical fact?

Hillary has lost more states and is behind by the objective measures of popular vote, delegates, and campaign cash.

Her recent claim that she's ahead in popular votes bears no basis in reality: it requires that she count states in which Obama DIDN'T APPEAR on the ballot (Soviet election anyone?) and which she agreed shouldn't count, and maybe you also need to throw in her 10th grade student council contest and her election as president of the Young Republicans at Wellesley.

I can understand a passionate commitment to a candidate. But I can't understand someone who calls themselves a Democrat believing that we should count "elections" in which only one candidate appeared on the ballot.

Franklin said...

Well, no, I'm not kidding. I'm just using a less-known meaning of "freaking hot" that is roughly equivalent to "more of the same damn shit that's already brought the country to its knees."

Yeah, but what if .....
Obama goes into the remaining primaries with an insurmountable lead in pledged delegates, a strong lead in the popular vote, and a huge advantage in fundraising ability? I had hoped that Obama could pull off a win here, and go into the remaining primaries with an insurmountable lead in pledged delegates, a strong lead in the popular vote, and a huge advantage in fundraising ability.
