Sounds to me like they have already counted the votes.

Not too presumptuous, is he?

I'm still not convinced that he will get the nomination.

Hillary has been awfully quiet lately.

Justice Department, State and the CIA will need Obama commies instead of Clinton commies...

I liked how one website (can’t remember which one) had a column calling the Obama Tour right now his “Premature Inauguration Syndrome”. Careful. Americans loved to be iconoclasts.

I've been frightened. This guy is scarier than the villians in some of the best political thriller novels.

Typical campaign PR BS.

I would remind them about the last three Democratic “Presumptive Presidents,” starting with the Hildabeast.

Heck he hasn't even announced his VP and he's already measuring the oval office windows for new drapes! I see he is counting his chickens before they hatch! Pray, and keep praying!

Here’s the problem I see. There is such an expectation of winning among the Dems (check out DU if you doubt that), if he loses there will be crying and “gnashing of teeth.” They will be convinced that the election was “stolen” once again, and these fans are so rabid there’s no telling what will go down.

It would have been bloody nice if Clinton had allowed President Bush to begin his transition after he won in Nov of 2000.

As I recall he would not allow President elect Bush access to necessary transition material until after the electoral college made it official.

That delayed the transition to a point that it was not until the week before 911 when some where finally in office.

Who knew it was possible for someone to be more arrogant than John Kerry? It will make his defeat that much more enjoyable.

Obama presidential library committee reports: expects opening in Chicago in October. Branches around the U.S. in 2009 and the rest of the world to follow by end of 1010.
