Pundits Proclaim Race Over

May 8, 2008

Obama Too Far Ahead

As the above posted clip illustrates, many are saying it’s over for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. However, Hillary has released an implausible, illogical excuse for staying in the race. Her excuse? in 2004 John Kerry was ahead in the polls, yet George Bush won anyway. And your point horse killer?

That’s like comparing apples and oranges. John Kerry was leading in the Democratic race, you are not. You have a virtually insurmountable delegate deficit. Superdelegates weren’t even taking your calls today according reports.

I think you’re cracking up or can’t add. Do you need people to get you in therapy to let this thing go, Hillary. You’re in denial.

Barack and Michelle Obama

If the superdelegates and Congress go against the will of the people and make Hillary the nominee, blacks on different well-read web sites are vowing not to turn out and vote for her. There are 40,000,000 black people in America and if the 10 voters in that number…just kidding.

Seriously, there are millions of black voters in America (I’m not the Census Bureau, people, I don’t have the exact number) that will not support her if he is robbed.

Hillary Clinton

*pointing at Hillary like Matlock* you steal the nomination from him, and come general election time, your voting line will have a distinct lack of color. Do not rob him of his place in history. He beat you fair and square.

Obama wins most delegates in Tuesday’s primaries

In the overall race for the nomination, Obama led with 1,846.5 delegates, including separately chosen party and elected officials known as superdelegates. Clinton had 1,696.

That leaves Obama just 178.5 delegates shy of the 2,025 needed to secure the Democratic nomination.

There are 217 delegates at stake in the final six contests: West Virginia, Kentucky, Oregon, Puerto Rico, Montana and South Dakota. Obama, however, won’t win enough of those delegates to claim the nomination because of the proportional method used by the Democrats to award them.

That leaves the nomination in the hands of about 265 superdelegates who have yet to be claimed. Superdelegates are the party and elected officials who will automatically attend the national convention and can support whomever they choose, regardless of what happens in the primaries and caucuses.


Pundits declare the race over

Very early this morning, after many voters had already gone to sleep, the conventional wisdom of the elite political pundit class that resides on television shifted hard, and possibly irretrievably, against Senator Hillary Clinton’s continued viability as a presidential candidate.

The moment came shortly after midnight Eastern time, captured in a devastatingly declarative statement from Tim Russert of NBC News: “We now know who the Democratic nominee’s going to be, and no one’s going to dispute it,” he said on MSNBC.


Clinton Campaign Going Broke Again

Hillary already loaned her campaign $5 million dollars this year. Now, she’s loaned it another $6.4 million dollars, as Obama has raised so much more money than she has, that she cannot keep up.

Clinton lends herself $6.4M as Obama’s lead grows

WASHINGTON (AP) – A campaign aide says Hillary Rodham Clinton loaned herself $6.4 million in the past month.

Politically wounded and financially strapped, Clinton plunged back into the presidential campaign Wednesday even as Barack Obama declared that Tuesday’s primary results left him with a “clear path to victory.”

Obama beat Clinton soundly in North Carolina and fell just short in an Indiana cliffhanger, a rebound for the Illinois senator that presented Clinton with fast-dwindling chances to deny him the Democratic presidential nomination.

The loan more than doubles Clinton’s personal investment in her bid for the Democratic nomination. She gave her campaign $5 million earlier this year.
