Voice is Back

My voice is back and thank goodness. One of the first things out of my mouth this morning was... It is NOT okay to kick your brother in the testicles, I don't care what he said to you.

Clinton is ahead in Ohio and dead even in Texas.

Obama's campaign changes the "drop out" line to, well, if she doesn't win by DOUBLE digits...

Maybe a little too cocky on Sunday morning?

It appears Obama is marketing his campaign on "Change" so that voters will be accustomed to change as they watch him reposition himself on issues. That is what happens when you don't have a solid foundation in the first place. Or what happens when you don't know the basics that make that foundation because you are reading off the cue cards of your oponent. We can only "hope" the voters realize what "changes" can be made with Hillary! Four shots!

So I can't help but recall the Howard Dean experience... so sure he'd win in Iowa that he was off to Virgina, New Hamphsire, Atlanta or where ever the next primary was to be held and then he came in..... third! Third! Ultimately, it was a deal breaker!

One thing about us Americans is that we - all of us - have short memories and we tend not to learn from our mistakes. I am hoping that the smug, arrogance that is being displayed by the Obama campaign is duly rewarded with a hearty dose of failure and that Clinton, indeed emerges victorious in both states. Not necessarily by double digits, but a healthy margin. This race is doing so much to invigorate the democratic electorate!!

some polls even have hillary back up in texas by a few points, as many as six, but the average of all these polls on realclearpolitics.com and pollster.com has her up by a point, or a point and a half, etc.

in any case, i'd love to see her take tx, oh, and ri, to put so many people in their place.

obama camp claiming she needs double digits? well what about him, his huge momentum yet failure to emerge as a clear frontrunner? then calls for her to drop out when its basically tied? ridiculous. if she even wins only two states today and it stays where it is, she should continue on to PA and other states... why is this country so impatient? let the thing take its course as naturally as it can with all of the skewing and spinning that happens. let all voters actually, uh, VOTE?

nah, that would make far too much sense.

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that the press tone has changed a little over the weekend? Since the publication of that memo from Shorenstein on Friday (article), I seem to have noticed a little less bias. Even CNN's headlines seemed to have changed. Is it just me?

watching all the major news network this morning, its clear the tone has changed, but they seem reluctant to let it change too much at times. but its absolutely changed... its nice to see a change, see clips of obama looking a bit nervous and people talking about him the way they should have since the begining, like a candidate for president, not some motivational speaker and the 'leader of a movement'.. yikes. i only hope its not too late!

Me too. The local talk here in Vancouver, WA/Portland, OR is still "will Hillary quit if she doesn't win today?". That and "she had to result to negative campaigning to get her numbers up" pretending to be so embarrassed that a Democrat has used negative campaigning. Do they actually think Obama won't go negative on McCain if he gets the nomination? Besides, when is calling someone's bluff considered negative campaigning?

hang on, we are going to see a big shift I believe.

Or maybe I just hope...

That's another shot!!!

we're quietly hoping with you from across the pond. It would be so nice to welcome a Lady President.

I remember the schedule that my SO got on the last Bush visit, with the abbreviations POTUS and FLOTUS. I wonder, should Sr. Clinton be elected to office, what title and abbreviation they will come up with for her husband.

I can feel the momentum begin to "change"!

Another shot!

Will we make it thru this night?
