Hillary, Does This Mean Anything to You?

Congratulations Undude & Big Daddy!

and how fitting is it that Gary, Indiana, the host site for the most recent DudeMania will be a difference-maker for Barack Obama!

Head Dude said...

Exactly!!!!
Let's hope that last 72% of the Lake County vote puts us over the top. Then it will be free White Castle burgers for all!

The Dude said...

I've looked at the county by county map for Indiana, and if Lake County holds true to form, Barack Obama will win Indiana.

I'm calling Indiana for Barack Obama.

Big Daddy said...

As for NC, thanks. But can you guys help me out. I'm a little confused at the overall picture because according to Hil

""We've come from behind," Clinton said. "We've broken the tie and thanks to you its full speed on to the White House."

Should Obama just go ahead and pack it in???

The Dude said...

I retract my call of Obama to Indiana... turns out Chuck Todd is probably more knowledgeable than me.

Head Dude said...

To answer Big Daddy's question, according to Hillary and her people, apparently Hillary is either:

(1) in the lead because she won Indiana
(2) in the lead because she's ready to again try and count MI and FL
(3) trailing, but now Obama must win 2200 delegates instead of 2025, because it's important to move back the goalposts late in the fourth quarter
(4) trailing, but just won the most important state left (Indiana), because it's a red state that she can put in play in November, even though whenever Obama wins red states, those states don't matter because he can't win them in November
(5) trailing, but the fact she cut Obama's 20-point NC lead down to 15 makes her a hero, even though when Obama cut her 20-point lead in PA to 10, that didn't matter, because when Hillary wins, a win is a win.

I grow weary of Hillary's plucky underdog act. She was the front runner at the start, the all-but-guaranteed winner at the time of DudeMania: Gary, the very well-connected wife of a very well-connected and popular former president; damnit, stop calling yourself Rocky! More importantly, I grow weary of the press reporting her crap. CNN's headline right now is about Hillary "full steam ahead" and her close win in Indiana.

And speaking of steam, one great note from the NC campaign: At a campaign stop at a train station, Gov. Mike Easley introduced Clinton saying, "This is the perfect place for Hillary Clinton to meet you, at a train station, because this lady is strong as train smoke." Quite simply, it might have been the worst simile of all time, and I teach high school English, so I've seen some sorry similes.

The Franchise said...

What worries me is how many Dems say they will not support the other candidate should theirs not win the primary. The idea of voting for McCain just because your candidate lost... well, it's unimaginable, really, for lack of a better word. That makes me think we are doomed come November, but truthfully I have felt that way all along.

Big Daddy said...

Franchise brings up a good point. Some backlash is to be expected because of the contentiousness of the race. Also I imagine once Obama is officially named the nominee Dems will rally. Nevertheless the numbers do raise a red flag. I was sharing with a friend earlier today the same worries. The fact that 50% in Ind & NC say they wouldn't vote for Obama with 1/3 and 38% respectively saying they'd vote for McCain was astounding to me and does not bode well for the fall.

Still in the words of that singular visionary

YES WE CAN!!!!

The Dude said...

We'll be okay dudes... the party will unite around its nominee, barack obama...

clear eyes...
full hearts...

can't lose
