Unless she can win by 30% there, then its all over and there will be no civil war at the convention.

She's not going to win by 30 points. Despite Fast Eddie's special sauce, Phila. and Pitts. will come out big for Obama. Unions used to hold sway in PA, but no more. There isn't a large Hispanic population in PA, so Hillary can't count on that.

Don't discount a big GOP crossover to vote Obama. I'm considering it myself, but want to wait another week or so and see how the polls shake out. If it stays in single digits for Hillary, I won't bother.

Hey Hillary may not have to worry about putting Barak on the bottom of her ticket if it continues like this.

Pennsylvania is a closed primary...you can't crossover in that state.

“Good, we don’t want Hillary pulling ahead”

A year ago I would be sick at the thought of Hillary clinton running for President. Today, I hope she wins.

Dems going out in droves to vote for a candidate that speaks only of change.
When will we demand an answer, change what?
Yes, if he should win, then we will find out.

Change our government.
Appoint muslin's to every high office in the land.
Stop airport checks so our enemy can travel freely to America.
Sell guns to our enemies in the middle east.
Change the vacation White House to a house in Iran.

Better ask questions before you vote.
Oh-I forgot-we have congress to prevent all this happening.
Really—Pelosi is giving tax breaks to Chavez.
She would probably love to vacation in Iran.
Ted Kennedy would probably think this was a great idea.
I could go on and on.

And don't we already have 2 congress members that are muslin.
Their plan is working.
Take over our country while we just sit and smile.

This is how the Chinese got our defense secrets when B Clinton was President—and we just smiled.

Now call me anything you wish, I am 73, have seen a lot of changes in the world. so many of them good. ?????

This is shocking. Our Democrats are primarily ‘old time’ Democrats (conservative by today’s standard). I’ve seen a handful of Hillary signs and virtually no Obama signs. You could fit our black population into a Dixie cup. Most of us just assumed Hillary would take it. Obama skipped Cheyenne completely and headed straight to the younger votes in Casper & Laramie. It obviously worked.

BTW, we’re a far cry from ‘turning left’ in Wyoming (unlike CO & MT). That may change as Boomers retire and take refuge in our tax haven State that maintains it’s budget in the black. Here’s hoping the climate prevents that.

Also, I wouldn’t recommend referring to Wyoming as ‘Wyomey’ unless you’d like to speed up the process of kicking the bucket......LOL.

This is going to play out to some kind of devastating scenario for the Dems no matter what. It's all so even, all the way to May in the popular vote. Someone would have to graciously leave the race to stop the threat of division...(hint hint).

At best Obama only picks up 2 delegates in a caucus state. But, if he can follow through with a 60% - 40% win in the primary in Missisippi it will help him to pull away from her in delegates and it will add to his popular vote advantage.

It is over. Hillary can't catch him in pledged delegates.

After the WY and Mississippi primaries are finished by Tuesday, adding to Obama's lead and reducing the number of delegates in play to 567, Hillary will need even bigger victory margins than 63% to 37%. And then there is NC with 115 delgates at play with Obama clearly favored given the makeup of the Dem party in the state.

The math is clearly against Hillary. To deny it is just plain fantasy. How many states so far has Clinton won by margins of 63% or more? Answer: One [Arkansas]. How many states has Clinton won by margins of 56% or more? Answer: Four.

I've heard some rumors of a "superdelegate bomb" being dropped after the Miss primary. That is they are trying to get 50 superdelegates to announce their cupport for Obama in one announcement. The purpose is to try to get Hillary to see the futility of continuing on and fracture the party. I simply don't believe the democrat party elders are going to let her cause a civil war at the convention.

I think the bomb must be a slow leaker...he's picking them up by six or seven a day. They are adding up.

I hadn't check the numbers in several days and I was surprised at how many he has gotten.

I use Real Clear Politics. Last time I checked...not sure how long ago, maybe two weeks, I know Obama had at least 50 less super delegates than this week. That’s a pretty big chunk out of the 400+ that are left. Maybe they are just waiting for a large enough accumulation to drop the “bomb” in the news.

Yes, but the small, insignificant town of Trier turned out to be the western-most terminus of the Mongol Invasion, too. Apparently, Wyoming natives (Post #61, & I'm sorry I don't know whether they're called Wyomingians or Wyominoids or what) are astounded at the result & reports indicate that what few humanoids are there were lined up in droves, itching to get into the cauci!

I thought these were a backward, closed-minded, intolerant and non-consciousness-raised people, cohabitating with bison after getting lost on the high plains during the great stampede to Californeee...

Visiting there is on my top ten list of things to do before I kick the bucket.

Do yourself a favor and go ASAP. It is not to be missed. I've seen them all and WY is the absolute winner, hands down. There is NO more beautiful sight in America than the Grand Teton. Ginny Lake, Snake River, the desert; I would give almost anything to be able to go back there just one more time.

This makes total sense. Hillary got a GOP boost last Tuesday because it was reasoned she couldn’t win anyway and the primary fight only helps our side. After her wins, people got scared that she might find a way to actually pull out the nomination and all right of left support dried up.

Yes, WY is a Red state, and the Clinton Machine didn’t campaign hard there, but there are SOME democrats there and they do get delegates and have their selection process. This doesn’t mean WY will go to Obama in November.

This is the equivalent of McCain winning in VT., Lotta good it’ll do him in Nov.

“Clinton netted only a handful of delegates from the primaries, and is going to lose a good deal more than that from the caucuses... in other words, primary results aside, Clinton lost Texas.”

And my sweetheart had Fox on with Dee Dee Myers talking about what a great ticket of Hillary/Obama would be! It doesn’t matter to the DNC that Obama is ahead in votes and delegates. It is Hillary’s turn in their view, I guess. Will be fun to watch the fighting!

I agree with you. We are far from turning left. Heck I think the only state that voted in a higher percentage for Bush in 2004 was Utah. Like you, Other than the naive college students I have only seen a few signs for Hillary and a few for Obama. And I live in the Liberal Bastion of the state- Laramie. Of course the local paper did manage to find the typical “Republican” who saw Obama speak and is going to vote for him in November.

The Democrats I know in Wyoming are from back east or Calif.
They were smart enough to inherit a nest egg. They like it here so well they move here and then start telling us how we should do things. They do some radical things to get attention. My county had a rash of new Dem. registrations. We now have 400 Democrats with 3800 registered voters. I am not surprised they went for Obama because most are fanatics and slow on the trigger.

Romney won and it had no affect on his campaign.

When Romney won Wyoming the DBM hardly mentioned it. One editorial, in fact, said that both he and McCain each had 3 (2?) wins at that time and put in parentheses right in the middle of a sentence ("Wyoming doesn't count".) I was stunned. The DBM did not want Romney. They now have their guy with so many areas of vulnerability. They must be so happy.
