Fifty-*six* hard-fought contests, Wonderboy.

Sorry to interrupt your "I'm claiming victory! Really! No fooling!" speech!

56. The fifty states, plus American Samoa, Democrats Abroad, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Unless you particularly felt like insulting Montana and South Dakota this evening? Or just didn't care? - well, at any rate it's precisely this keen attention to detail, regard for the feelings of others, and rigorous fact-checking that is going to make campaigning against you and yours such a joy for us, Senator.

Assuming, of course.

John McCain for 2008!

This is the single most important speech of his life to date.

The Fuzzy Puppy of the VRWC. I've been usurped!

when talking about the first Clinton campaign?

That is in reference to the two of them (Bill/Hillary) working on McGovern's campaign in TX in '72 as their first campaign. 'Twasn't a goof.

Sen. Obama is right.

Florida and Michigan were voluntarily excluded from his list of hard-fought contests.

to negotiate a back-room deal to get something for nothing is likely to cost him their electoral college votes.

Rookie...

Along with the couple dozen people in his crowd.

Obama just woke me up.

The GOP is screwed.

listening with your desires.....lets be clear Obama is a great orator however some of the worst leaders in history were equally as great in their delivery which is how they ascended to their positions.

...who couldn't get through the most important speech in his life without screwing it up on the first line.

Hope you didn't give him any money!

PS: Liberals are fine; liberals pretending to be one of us aren't.

Blam.

The Fuzzy Puppy of the VRWC. I've been usurped!

It is still unclear to me that he goofed and that it wasn't just excluding MI and FL. I think that makes more sense than the they-just-miscounted version.

btw, some other prominent liberal person (not a politician) screwed up way worse today...but I'm not gonna tell you so as to not have to hear about it from y'all.

Really really badly too see your boy continuously screw up like that. So take this as the heartfelt feeling that it is, He can't get much worse.

By tomorrow it will be 56...I don't think this is a question of saying today's contests/states don't matter.

Freedom of Religion NOT Freedom from Religion

...were completed, and then proceeded to screw it up anyway. They just haven't been fully counted, although it's clear that Obama won one and lost the other.

(pause)

That's pretty nifty, by the way. Keeps the whole caucus/primary debate up in the air, know what I mean?

The Fuzzy Puppy of the VRWC. I've been usurped!

Too bad McCain is a flawed candidate whose positions are almost identical to Obama's with the exception of national defense issues.

to the left has to break your neck looking...and lets be clear dmort McCain's positions are no where near the marxist Obama.....and that exception you mention is the one that matters the most because everything we are is dependent upon National Defense.

Freedom of Religion NOT Freedom from Religion

oh, except you forgot judges, earmarks, pork, spending, taxation, social security reform, school choice, abortion, partial birth abortion, character, and integrity.

But otherwise, right on.

hahah perfect!

yes mccain just SCREAMS huge leftie.

as in there was no difference between Churchill and Chamberlain except national defense, Lincoln and McClellan, Nixon (who was quite statist in his own way) and McGovern, etc.

Dream on bro!

Descriptive text here

They are both male.
They are both Senators.
They both speak English.
They are both carbon-based life forms.

The similarity ends there.

But Moe, ya gotta admit, your guy can really turn into a snoozer when the cameras are on.

Whereas my guy can light it up. I look forward to the clips to Obama's speech during the Republican Convention, since we cleverly stole your venue. Muhahaha.

All that said, just glad it's over.* Now we get to have the.best.general.election.ever.

Guess I'm feeling bullish tonight....

*And yes, Hillary will fold. Just give her a few days.

Go in peace, and have a beer. :)

The Fuzzy Puppy of the VRWC. I've been usurped!

Hasn't been an ideal primary for me. This is a good day.

And man I hope we don't need all those bloody millions we've already burned. That still hurts.

Don't be giddy too fast. I signed up here a month ago, check my history here, to tell you the truth, I am a Hillary democrat. For us, it's Hillary or Bust. We actually urge Clinton to run as an independent, it's a sure way to make the current democratic party explode in Nov.

No, we are not irrational. In our view, the current party has been hijacked by the most extreme leftists. I fear for U.S.A's future when the party controls three branches of the government with an Anti-America Bambi on top.

Enjoy your night, and see you in November.

If that's your wish, there are a lot of good folks around here who will be happy to help you out with that mission.

But I think you will be the exception, not the rule.

He's a bumbling idiot when he's off his talking points or doesn't have technical aid. Good luck to you and your Marxist Comrade Obama.... NOT!
Tim Schieferecke

And I'm not persuaded that Obama off the prompt is weaker than McCain on. Time will tell. But I like my horse, no doubt.

The sweeter it is when their hopes are crushed.

Just think Harriet Christian was once happy and content with her party and the future laid out for it.

Does anyone else just think that is plain weird to hear? I mean, seriously.

Yeah, yeah, well, I heard a lot of happy talk in these parts about not voting for McCain at one point. Of course, to your credit, you didn't drag it out until June(!). Some Hillary voters will be lost this election, either to McCain or more likely to Fort Living Room, but something tells me we won't lose as many as you hope :-).

Time will tell. I'll leave y'all alone tonight. G'night.

Without even making the effort yet. God knows where he will be if he picks up Hillary voters. Then there is the fact that that the electoral map favors him and Obama hasn't won any of the states in the primary a democrat would have a prayer of winning in the general. (Well except Illinois(Then again even mondale got minnesota))

Not seeing that over at RCP, nor in the state-by-states. Presumably, things will get better for Obama now that the active portion of a very divisive primary is over.

And not winning the primary in the big blue states isn't the end of the road. Unless you think McCain is going to pick up New York or California or something, in which case I have some nice watches I'd like to show you.

you seem to be a might sensitive. Someone who is really confident would welcome the overconfidence.

Oh as to the percentage points, Obama underperforms polls where people actually vote. That would be something like a general election.

It's early yet, but what's your source?

I've seen polls showing a tie or even an Obama advantage:

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/maps/obama_vs_mccain/
http://www.electoral-vote.com/

the fact that someone who has had so many friends and close advisors who have made explicit statements about how much they hate America can still win a major party nomination for President is a tremendous accomplishment.

We underestimate him at our own peril, but my advice to you is not to underestimate the likelihood that 51%+ of the American public will conclude that birds of a feather flock (or come home to roost) together.

the fact that someone who has had so many friends and close advisors who have made explicit statements about how much they hate America can still win a major party nomination for President is a tremendous accomplishment.

Not a tremendous accomplishment in the modern Democratic Party, in which DailyKOS has become the kingmaker, in which dozens of convention delegates are decked out in Code Pink regalia, and in which Al Sharpton gets to address the convention (and nation) in prime time.

Not in THAT party.

kool-aid. Your horse is a stinkin' no-good commie.

...then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth.

Oh my goodness.

Could Obama be buying into the hype that he is the next messiah?

John McCain for 2008!

My thought is that the media will build The Obama up so much until the debates that average Jane and Joe will say "This guy? Really? I mean, he was good but, I was told he was super-duper great. I was expecting more."

That's not to say that the instant polls and/or pundits after the debates won't show him winning--it'll take a while for that reality to percolate through.

That's the hope, anyway. I mean, the MSM nearly pushed Kerry over the line--and he was a dud in most debates.

That was awful. I was amazed he could come back.

Kerry had to keep campaigning as if he was ten points ahead; his base would have freaked out if he had done anything else. Obama-the-nominee would have to do pretty much the same thing; amusingly and ironically, Clinton-the-nominee probably wouldn't.

On a related note, you are on fire today Moe.

The networks had the cameras close in with the effect of making BO appear big and the crowd behind him to contain few blacks. Fox had the camera pulled back making BO appear small, and the audience appearing to contain many blacks who were self sequestered into a separate group. No blacks were talking to any whites. HRC's song should have been "Still crazy after all these years".
When contemplating two competing models, both of which explain the observed facts, the simplest of the two should be embraced.

Occam's razor

Does the GOP have anyone in Illinois to compete for BHO's Senate seat? If Keyes is all they had last time against BHO, I'd say the seat would remain liberal.
How about AZ for McCain's seat? If Hillary goes VP, there's another seat.


-- A true evolutionist would let endangered species die off. Anyone care to change sides?
-- Rapture: real separation of church and state --

The Republican party in Illinois is in a quagmire of internal bickering with no strong candidates in sight. We seem to get either strong-right but unattractive candidates [Keyes], or self-funded egomaniacs [Oberweis, McSweeney], or the old-fashioned, get-along-to-go-along compromiser [Prisoner Ryan, Barr-Topinka]. The party doesn't seem to have gotten the message that the public doesn't want these choices.

Did CNMI really not have a contest? Hm. I remember the number 57 from my days in math competitions, where there were 57 teams, one from each state, DC, PR, GU, Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, and DOD/DOS. Wait, that adds up at 58... Whatever.

Gengisdon - does it worry you that Obama has zero foreign policy / national security experience (in such a dangerous time)? Just curious, and I mean that sincerely.

Isn't it a roll of the dice to elect someone so unknown, so inexperienced like Obama -- as opposed to a known quantity, a veteran, an established workhorse, like McCain?

Can you name me one accomplishment in Obama's short time in the Senate? (Can you name the governor of your own state?)

Lastly, I wonder if some of Obama's massive fundraising is coming from the Middle East.......

He didn't fight hard in 56 contests. He wasn't even on the ballot in Michigan.

Surely, if he had claimed to have fought hard in 56 contests it would have been a gaffe which would have been pointed out on the front page.
