Article today about some 21 year old college dude that couldn't even vote in the last election and he's a superdelegate. Chelsea came and had breakfast with him. I'd vote for Hillary if they'd keep that thing away...

Democratic Races

DC
Obama 75%

MD
Obama 61%

VA
Obama 64%

Clinton's base has eroded (women/elderly/blue collar workers). Unless she pulls off a miracle upset in the next month, she's pretty screwed.

Odds Hillary will win Tejas..?

Home of W, the President, and huge hispanic population.. & lots of delegates.

Not sure is the N'awlins-to-Houston transplants are going to be enough to put Obama over the top, although the race may come down to the white liberal vote. Should be interesting to see how it turns out.

Why would Obama be any more likely to be assassinated than any other president? It's not exactly an easy thing to accomplish. Wanting to do it and being able to do it are two very different things.

Yeah. Rednecks have never been known to be suicide bombers.

Saying, "hey y'all watch this" and then blowing themselves up isn't intentional suicide.

i fugure it after 9/11 and how loved W is, that that event will be a very very very remote possibility.

As loony as the stormfront/aryan brotherhood freaks are I can't imagine they're anywhere near as organised or fanatical as the Al-Qaeda type.
As an aside, from my personal observations, knocking off the Australian and/or Japanese prime ministers wouldn't be that difficult.
When I saw the Aust PM speak (admittedly in 1995) he had one guy with him and you had to go through a metal detector before going into the venue. That's it that I could see.
The Japanese PM (1997 vintage) had a big black limo with guys running alongside but I had a clear view of him from my 3rd floor window.

I am surprised N8 hasn't posted this photo yet, its been a popular photo for weeks:



A road sign points the way to nearby towns Clinton and Prosperity in Newberry, South Carolina, January 25, 2008. US Democratic presidential candidates Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY), former Senator John Edwards (D-NC) and Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) have been criss-crossing South Carolina ahead of the state's Democratic primary election.

Might I suggest for his campaign bumper sticker "No Drama Obama"?


Senator No-drama gets a big pass just for being easy going and non-confrontational. But sooner or later Obama and his supporters will have to deal with substance where aggression is a fact of life: national security. Obama's foreign policy seems as non-confrontational as his image. So far, the public is buying it, but that's because they have not yet thought seriously about issues of war. That will wait for the general election campaign.

Why is n8 so scared of Obama? I thought he got the hebees from Hillary before, but he is putting entirely too much effort into his Anti-Obama campaign.

Is it because he thinks Obama might win?

Trouble In HillaryLand...

Some Hispanic leaders had written to Mrs. Clinton that it would be "troubling to many" if Ms. Solis Doyle, the first Latina to run a presidential campaign, was removed because of primary losses that were other people's fault. The campaign urged Ms. Solis Doyle, whose parents and siblings emigrated from Mexico, to state publicly that she wasn't forced out. Ms. Solis Doyle told reporters: "This is my decision, my choice, my timing....There was no pressure."

A prominent Republican at a swank press roast this week posed the Republican dilemma something like thus:

"So we have a New York Senator running for president who was born in Illinois, and an Illinois Senator running for president who was born in a manger."
