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.
LOL! Sorry...silly me. When’s the pubbie caucus?
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.
Already held, early in January.
Obama will win Texas once the caucus votes are tallied.
Please do not tell me this. It’s too depressing. ;O)
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.
But, why the dim delay?
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.
OK...sorry...actually....i HOPE that things will be better....because...as a nation...things will get better,as long as everyone is thinking....YES WE CAN!!!!
How was that?? ;-)
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.
Less than 10,000 people “voted”. 7 delegates won. Yawn.
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.
The link below is the best that I've been able to find:
Lost souls wondering where they are. ; )
Well,Romney won my state,but they are now talking about a DemonRat do-over....at the cost of $12 Million...in a state that does’nt have a spare 12¢ so I say....Nadar/Paul in 08....makes no sense.....but about as much sense as anything else in this whole cluster****.
I look lik Obam ha wo Wyomin handil. Hillar didn’ hav a chanc.
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.
After all this is a Clinton in this campaign.
He!! or high water, "shystering" ways, murder, loss of sovereignty, what ever it takes, she WILL be the dimocratic nominee.
It's her only want in life. It "ain't" over until it's over.
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...
Aye, Captain...she cawn't take much more out here...She's gonna BLOW!! -:)
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.
Wyoming is a very beautiful state. Well worth the visit.
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.
Maybe Barack is ‘vagina friendly’ like Ray Nagins.
In 2000, more people voted in Philadelphia than were registered.
“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!
That's a distinction without a difference.
Yeppers, the Aspen of Wyoming. It's okay, it's sheep country.
These are Dems in Wyoming: they are a very small minority of voters. I would be very surprised to see WY go D in the general.
Yeh, Who cares? Republicans have Mc Cain
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.
That’s it—Hillary is Lost—Its all over folks. She is toast. Obama will win and be the next president. he’s just too good of a speaker, he is too much of a genius, he is too great like maybe a new JFK or Jesus. Its over. SC\scarcasm
Oh, Lordy, here it comes... going to be a circus here with them two fools stumping around our neck of the woods.
I can’t fathom what kind of person would be a Wyoming resident and delight in self-sustenenance & all that, and call themselves a democrat.
Politico reports: there were about 7,000 actual votes, per the Wyoming Democratic Party’s website.
