Obama Rocks

Barack Obama's string of eight consecutive victories over the last week with increasing margins seems to suggest that Obama's message is beginning to resonate with all Americans. The breakdown of voters last night was fascinating. He increased his vote amongst women, white males and Latinos. All three categories will play a major part in Texas & Ohio primaries.

Obama's speech last night in Wisconsin was his best so far. It seems he is just getting going and now there is a possibility that the 'Obama Movement' will capture the hearts of Wisconsin voters where Hillary had unassailable lead until recently. Which begs the question, why is Hillary in Texas and not in Wisconsin, shouldn't she focus on Wisconsin first where the primary is on Tuesday? Some more people in her campaign team need to be fired!

The Americans are taking a good look at Barack and they like what they see. Last night CNN showed Senator McCain's speech immediately after Barack's and what a comparison. McCain seemed tired, unenthusiastic and spent.

If John Edwards is considering endorsing Obama, he better do it soon or he will be irrelevant.

In spite of what the polls now say, I think McCain will get trounced in the general election.

I agree that if Obama is the nominee, McCain will be trounced like Mondale was. However, if Hillary is the nominee, there may be a competition.

I think that even Hillary will do well against McCain unless the Democratic Convention ends up being a mess. McCain lately pretty much sounds like Bush minus the oil company connections.

Of late McCain has been looking frail and week. I hope he has the strength to go the distance.
