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...
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.
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:

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.
I thought Obama supported smaller, more advanced forces for surgical ground strikes. Didn't he say something like, "screw pakistan, if we get word of where terrorists are, we're crossing border and taking them out"?
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."
