Skip to comments.Clinton camp tries to downplay Obama caucus sweep

Hillary Rodham Clinton had hoped her strong showing on Super Tuesday would halt Barack Obama's momentum - but that notion was shattered yesterday as Obama scored blowouts in Washington state, Louisiana and Nebraska.
The Clinton camp had tried to downplay the widely anticipated losses as old news - and her campaign had ceded Louisiana and Nebraska to save their resources for the bigger March 4 contests in Texas and Ohio.
But the big wins for Obama could fuel the perception that he's on a roll, and victories could be scarce for Clinton over the next few weeks if she doesn't prevail in today's closely contested Maine caucuses.

The perception? Huh? He's killing her. It's not a perception.
And apparently Maine isn’t going too well for her.
Poor Hillary. I almost shed a tear for her. Almost.
I perceive he’s on a roll.
There's nothing to see here folks, Hillary will win every primary in every state every time. Would Baghdad Bob lie?
Hillary sacked her campaign manager today. It must be someone else’s fault that most voters would rather have a root canal than listen to her pedantic, boring speeches and watch her fake, over-the-top expressions as she vainly attempts to overcome her robotic nature. Yeppers...that new campaign director will be the answer.
I think they should just put some ice on it.
It just goes to show that people prefer stupid over evil. Maybe the GOP has a chance this fall after all.
Obama is sucking Hillary’s oxygen faster than Monica hoovering her hubby, errr I mean delivering his pizza.

“It’s just a flesh wound!”
That is a huge lie. Hillary Clinton was expected to wipe out Obama on Super Tuesday but she failed miserably to do so. Obama won 13 states, she won 8, and he won more "pledged" delegates that day.
I’ve noticed that as well when reading headlines. It’s like they know Hillary will be the victor no matter how many states Obama wins.
If Hillary doesn’t pull this out with super delegates, she’s not gonna be a very gracious loser.
It is Bush’s fault.
Just who is/was the architect of the “Super Delegate” charade? That’s real big cronie bull$hit pill to have to swallow if I were a registered democrat voter.
That there's some mighty powerful spin. Obama is kicking her Butt and I'm enjoying it immensely. Hope it continues. One of the few real joys of this election cycle for me.
