I don't know if you have seen the Empire Strikes Barack parody on YouTube, but it is hilarious. But if the Clinton/Media Empire struck Barack in the last few weeks, last night represented The Return of the Jedi. (Yes I'm revealing some dorkiness, but I'm excited, what can I say? LOL). Last night Barack Obama TROUNCED Hillary Clinton with a 14% lead in North Carolina, negating her gains from her Pennsylvania win, and then, if that weren't enough, he came within 2% points of her in Indiana. Old Hills expected Indiana and North Carolina to be a game changer. And she was right--Barack returned in full force and showed that he could weather the storm and that he still had the support of the people. The fact that he could beat her overwhelmingly in North Carolina and that she could barely edge out a victory in Indiana with all of the bad press Obama has received lately speaks volumes.
Onward and upward Obama!
P.S. There was a point at the beginning of the presidential race when I would have been happy if Hillary won because I'm a woman and it is about time America followed the example of many other countries and had a female leader. But, that time has passed due to the antics of the Clinton machine.
CNN is reporting the following on Darth Vader today:
Hillary Clinton suggested Wednesday that "White Americans" are increasingly turning away from Barack Obama’s candidacy."I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on," Clinton said in an interview with USA TODAY.
Clinton cited an Associated Press poll "that found how Senator Obama's support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me."
"There's a pattern emerging here," she said. Exit polls from Tuesday's primaries in Indiana and North Carolina show Clinton won about 60 percent of the white vote in both states. That percentage is down from the Ohio primary on March 4, in which Clinton won upwards of 65 percent of the white vote. Meanwhile, Clinton garnered 63 percent of the white vote in Pennsylvania on April 22. Speaking with the paper, Clinton rejected the notion her comments were racially divisive in any way. "These are the people you have to win if you're a Democrat in sufficient numbers to actually win the election," she said. "Everybody knows that."
I don't want to call her a B out of overall respect for the first viable female candidate, but she's making it hard...........
