I am sooo pissed right now. I was hoping Obama would have been able to get one of them...perhaps he'll still get Texas

Why do they keep closing threads?

I've never seen anything that went on to a fourth discussion thread before.

Bah, make that third boobies.

/Still disappointed in Ohio.

Shaggy_C: Just saying that some people really are too dumb to be CEOs. Some are too dumb to really do anything we consider white-collar today. Rather than say 'well, they should work at McDonalds', I say they get into a trade where they BUILD things, and help our overall economy by making us not a country of consumers but one of makers too. But...Maybe you'd rather we continue to turn soft and weak and send all of our important industry abroad, security risk be damned. I mean, shiat man...if we go to war in a major way, what the hell are we going to do when we have to depend on China to make our tanks for us?

Pay American laborers inflated wages for the same product sold in America. Who's wallet does that hurt genius? The 10,000 workers with fabricated jobs, or the millions of Americans that pay to subsidize jobs that the market doesn't want? And how easy will it to be to export said product if its cost is inflated.

You fail at economics. This is freaking basic and you fail.

Oh, but the fraudulent national security rhetoric was a nice touch.

However, that point also fails because you fail to realize that China cannot continue to thrive economically and drive its middle class without the social reforms that they will inevitably demand.

When was the last time we went to war with a liberal democracy.

Give it up Shaggy, you're simply outclassed here.

I guess Supply Side Jesus didn't cover that in his sermons.

Patience. I'm sure you'll have your chance to gas the Christians someday.

Hmm maybe I'll ask here about this...

I don't know if this means anything or not, but when I look at the map on CNN it appears as though most of the Clinton strongholds are tapping out (other than Webb and El Paso) in terms of precincts reporting while ones where Obama has a major lead appear to have a ways to go, including the major population centres (where he appears to have a rather substantial lead). I don't quite understand why Harris is hanging at 14% for so long, though.

Still, she looks to be pulling ahead.

Steals those second place boobies like Hillary is trying to steal the Democratic nomination.

MY TURN!111!

Anyone hear Russert list the Obama memo?

Interesting.

Okay, I lol'd

Thanks for lightening the mood.

At this point, my only fear is the perception that Obama lost tonight, when, in reality, he did everything he could, and will come out tomorrow with a substantial delegate lead. On that count, Hillary failed, miserably. However, looking at the front page of CNN, it sure doesn't look like that.

Alright... here's the question for the Democratic Party. This race has split the party almost exactly in half. The question is, do you want the half that is primarily people born before 1960? Or do you want the half born after 1960? Consider what that means in 2012. In 2016. In 2020. Also, consider how many life-long Democrats become Republicans right about the time they get their AARP card. Think about it. Come up with a good answer before Denver.
 
2008-03-05 12:10:11 AM
As far as Ohio, I just want Obama to get within 10% of Clinton. No double digit leads. I don't want anyone (other than Clinton, because she will) turning this into a mandate.
 
2008-03-05 12:10:13 AM
Obama will win Texas.

Darth_Lukecash:

He's winning in the giant metro areas while Clinton is winning in the fly-over part of Texas. Plus there is the caucus which is where he does his best.

/2 of the largest counties in OH still need to get their votes in as well, so that gap will only shrink
 
2008-03-05 12:10:39 AM
Four? Wow. It's like some sort of record.


/Damn you Ohio!
//We still have Texas. I hope...

C'mon, Texas, get your act together. My buds told me you were cool.
 
2008-03-05 12:11:09 AM
Richardson and Edwards better get off their asses and make up their minds about who they are going to endorse. If they keep waiting it will only make them look like they are waiting for a victor to make a stand.
 
2008-03-05 12:11:29 AM
Comeon Texas! Obama needs you!
 
2008-03-05 12:11:35 AM
Let's not forget that Ohio was responsible for "re-electing" Bush. Yup, a state full of winners there...

locopolitico, you are the first person to use an image of mine in a thread!

Ohio: Most of the rural bumfark Clinton counties that count their votes on their fingers and toes (or in some cases an abacus, if the total exceeds 17) have fully reported. The cities, where they count the votes on a 1974 Texas Instruments pocket calculator supplemented with a chalkboard are still only half-counted. Watching the results over the past couple hours, the margin's been narrowing, and I expect it'll end up closer to the pre-primary polls.

Fark Ohio anyway.

Especially Cuyahoga County, the map of which appears in the dictionary next to "Corruption". Chicago electoral politics? Phfffft. Please.

Texas: No caucus results reported yet.

you expected something different from the clinton news network?

Shame on you Ohio!, shame on you!

This will end up being the first brokered convention in my lifetime. I'll be watching that with great interest.

barcaboy: Obama will win Texas.

I agree. Once Dallas and Austin start coming in Clinton's 1-3 point lead will disappear in a heartbeat.
 
2008-03-05 12:12:30 AM
Obama for CHangE...

Hillary is growing her lead in TX. We're farked.

It won't, but the truth is still there, she will need 65% of all the remaining contests to win this, and tonight just made it harder for her, small wins and ties are bad for her, she needed to win this big.

If the story about the 50 delegates getting ready to endorse Obama is true, he'll steal her media coverage, too.
 
2008-03-05 12:12:44 AM
Hillary is up in Texas by 2% on cnn's count.

I bet republicans were voting for Hillary to prolong the race.
 
2008-03-05 12:13:00 AM
Obama will squeak by in the popular vote in TX

But all signs seem to indicate he will stomp her on the delegate count.

It is very possible that Obama will be able to claim that he has widened his delegate lead against Clinton, that's all he'll need to start brining some Supers on board.
 
2008-03-05 12:13:09 AM
Anyone know when the Texas caucus results start coming in?

Explain.
 
2008-03-05 12:13:16 AM
All right, so what's left it this plays out all the way?
Here's my gut calls (haven't checked polls, just going on gut)
North Carolina -- Obama
Mississippi -- Obama
Pennsylvania -- Edge: Clinton
Indiana -- Obama
S Dakota -- Haven't a clue
Kentucky -- Edge: Obama
Oregon -- Obama

Agree? Disagree?

Screw you Hippie. We delivered our County, and did it well.

Blame the rest of the state. We did our part

Adolf Oliver Nipples: This will end up being the first brokered convention in my lifetime. I'll be watching that with great interest.

There will be no brokered convention. It's basically impossible. There are only two candidates to vote for - one of them will get over 50% on the first ballot. A brokered convention means no one gets to 50% on the first ballot, and that requires more than 2 nominees. I really don't think John Edwards 26 delegates will make the difference.

IAmAGodWarrior: Your entire post is full of fail. If you complete the scenario you depicted above, blue collar wokrewrs have more money in their pockets, genius. china cant contain its growth? watch it. regulation of currency and boom in manufacturing jobs.

Weak rebuttal. You didn't read what I wrote and/or you can't do the math.

10,000 workers with more money in their pockets doesn't offset the millions paying more for the inflated cost of product X, and the opportunity cost of failed trade overseas due to inflated cost. Math is your friend.

china cant contain its growth?

Never wrote this. You missed the point entirely.

DamnYankees: Hillary is growing her lead in TX. We're farked.

Really? CNN just had her lead go from 51-48 to 50-48, 64% reporting.
