Well that was just ugly. It's not a good morning to wake up a Hillary Clinton supporter, no real way to put any good spin on this one. It may be over, even if you add Michigan and Florida to the mix, Senator Obama is ahead in all the counts. Which leads me to the question:
" What have you done for me lately?"
If he is the nominee, what is he going to do to get me to go to the polls in November? This is something that I do not believe the Obama camp has thought about. JUST LIKE, Senator Clinton assumed the position was hers last year, Obama assumes that all the people who support her will fall ,lock step, in line. Lets look at some numbers.
INDIANA: HRC-638,274 (50.9%)
Close, too close, and there is the pure evil specter of what some are calling the (spit) the Limbaugh effect. The drug addict has been on air demanding his army of spineless-mindless zombies to cross lines and vote for Hillary to keep the race going, to have the two Democrats do the dirty work for Senator McCain. In VERY red counties HRC did well, so it could have worked a little. So even this small victory could be pyrrhic. BUT , that leads us to November.
Zippy easily took Indiana in 2004 1,479,438 to Kerry's 969,011. Now we , for the sake of argument , have to think that the Obama base was as fired up as they are ever going to be yesterday, and pulled out less votes than John Kerry did. Combined the Democratic vote yesterday does not beat the GOP total in 2004. This does not bode well for Indiana to GO BLUE in '08.
NORTH CAROLINA: BHO-890,695 (56.2%)
Now this was just your old fashion ass kicking. 91% of the African-American vote went for Senator Obama. It would be hard to get 91% of any group of Americans to agree that water is wet. The only group that Hillary took in NC was older Catholic females, really. Here again though, Senator Obama has a real problem in November, Zippy got 1.9 million + votes in '04, yesterdays combined Democrat total is 1.5 million +. North Carolina stays red.
Bringing us back , as seemingly ALWAYS to OHIO and FLORIDA. Hillary country. If he is to win the White House, what is he going to do for the Clinton supporters in those two states?
Hell hath no fury........
