Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
If Hillary Clinton were to win the Democratic nomination in spite of the popular vote in favor of Barack Obama the question I will be most concerned with is not what effect that will have on Democratic voters, but whether those dissatisfied with the result of the 2000 presidential election will finally stop harping on the deficiencies of the electoral college and...Read more »
After the Indiana primary. Clinton stated in her speech that she is running to be the president of all of America north, south, east and west, and everywhere in between. That's why it is so important that we count the votes of Florida and Michigan.
Yesterday, one day after proclaiming her desire to be a president for all Americans, Clinton suggested "white...Read more »
CNN quotes Rush Limbaugh as saying, I now believe he [Obama] would be the weakest of the Democrat nominees. Barack Obama has shown he cannot get the votes Democrats need to win blue-collar, working-class people ... He can get effete snobs, he can get wealthy academics, he can get the young and he can get the black vote, but Democrats do not win with that."

I am in perfect concert with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's statement, "A win is a win. Let's just call it what it is." So much attention has been paid to Sen. Clinton's "narrow victory" that the most important fact is being overlooked: She won!
Not only is the "narrow victory" phrasing a media headline that discredits Hillary's win, it is an effective campaign tool that attempts...Read more »
By far, the biggest side show of them all has been all the hullabaloo about the superdelegates: Who they are, where they live and who theyll vote for. This is the sideshow that spawned the pimping out of Chelsea Clinton and the idea that again the decision of president would be taken out of the peoples hands and decided by a select elite (?) few. Enter...Read more »
The most ridiculous sideshow has been the medias concentration on the Rev. Wright. Its interesting that during this whole primary season, the only negative the media Hillary and her peeps can poke at Obama about are his associates.
They havent found anything about him personally thats been bad enough to create a national uproar over....Read more »
I feel like Im in the middle of a suspense thriller, sitting at the edge of my seat for the finale. Waiting for the twist. For the one possible thing I never expected. Like on "Law and Order" last night, where the antagonist was the prime suspects attorney. The attorney was also in love with her client and her final act to protect him was to yank him with her as she jumped off...Read more »
Its so over.
Sen. Barack Obama is striding to the Democratic nomination while Sen. Hillary Clintons only legitimate reason to keep playing is how well she sings the blue-collar blues.
She could woe the remaining superdelegates to decide contrary to the popular vote, and she could woe the Democratic National Committee into giving Florida...Read more »
Former South Dakota Sen. George McGovern was once all about Sen. Hillary Clinton, and now he's all:
"Hillary, of course, will make the decision as to if and when she ends her campaign. But I hope that she reaches that decision soon so that we can concentrate on a unified party capable of winning the White House next November."
McGovern added he has no regrets about...Read more »
Defying calls from some to drop from the race, Sen. Hillary Clinton firmly holds her ground, wins states and vows to go all the way to the convention. Her tenacity is not only rooted in her wins, but in her lead amongst superdelegates, who have the ability to cast decisive votes that may decide the Democratic presidential candidate. In much the same scare-tactic...Read more »
