WY is moving to the left like its northern neighbor, where Ted Turner has bought up so much property. Maybe Obamamania has now come to WY too. Probably up in Jackson County in particular
I heard that most of the differential in the causus came form the Laramie area where the Universities are. You've got to be careful when drawing a conclusion about a caucus...less than 10,000 people voted in Wyoming.
Yeppers, the Aspen of Wyoming. It's okay, it's sheep country.
“WY is moving to the left like its northern neighbor, where Ted Turner has bought up so much property.” - Not really ...
” Maybe Obamamania has now come to WY too. Probably up in Jackson County in particular” - Obama is appealling to the kids on College campus and related academic precincts.
What is amazing is the energy, money, and passion behind Obama. Yet it remains a narrow slice of the electorate:
1. people too young to remember how bad a similar Jimmy Carter was.
2. Liberal progressive academic types.
I worry about a weak economy and a weak campaign hurting McCain, but otherwise, McCain’s got so many lines of attack to hammer Obama:
- Obama is a left-liberal extremist
- Obama lacks experience to be CinC and has naive views on foreign policy
- Obama’s “patriotism gap” compared with
- Obama’s tax hikes and spending spree will hurt the economy
- obama is too anti-Israel and too soft on the islamic jihadists
- On Iraq, I honestly beleive he will mop the floor with Obama. Nobody wants to lose a war and McCain can make the case that only he will win the war and bring the troops home *with honor*.
The real GOP weak spot is going to be the economy. We have prospect of near 0% growth and/or recession, and
2 out of 3 say the economy is going in the wrong direction. The Democrats will try a redo on 1992 grounds. The Dems will make the economy the issue. McCain needs to bone up to survive the attacks on those grounds. He needs Gramm and Romney and others helping him on this.
