Leahy to Clinton: Drop Out

On March 28, 2008 By

Vermont Public Radio

“There is no way that Senator Clinton is going to win enough delegates to get the nomination. She ought to withdraw and she ought to be backing Senator Obama. Now, obviously that’s a decision that only she can make. Frankly I feel that she would have a tremendous career in the Senate.”

Thanks again Senator. Very courageous thing to do in bucking the establishment and other key leaders in your state. It WAS the right thing to do.

(audio on this seems kinda low to me, maybe they’ll upload another version)

If anyone is wondering why I’m posting on the Presidential so much and why I’m still hammering away for Obama, consider the fact that Delaware County went for Obama. I consider it my mandate. The people of Delaware County have SPOKEN! πŸ˜‰

Three More Months of Fighting?

On March 28, 2008 By

This morning Howard Dean announced that he wants all of the super delegates to endorse by July 1st.

July 1st!? That’s over three months from now! I’m not sure I can take three more months of Hillary and Barack beating each other up over tiny, meaningless things that may or may not have been said or happened.

I know that Montana and South Dakota are holding their primaries on June 3rd – how about we make the superdelegates decide by June 4th?

Better still: let’s move up the rest of the primaries and caucuses – Guam, Indiana, North Carolina, […]

In a 3/25 PR, Team Billary says:

Sen. Obama consistently and falsely claims that he was a law professor. The Sun-Times reported that, “Several direct-mail pieces issued for Obama’s primary [Senate] campaign said he was a law professor at the University of Chicago. He is not. He is a senior lecturer (now on leave) at the school. In academia, there is a vast difference between the two titles. Details matter.” In academia, there’s a significant difference: professors have tenure while lecturers do not. [Hotline Blog, 4/9/07; Chicago Sun-Times, 8/8/04]

The University of Chicago Law School says:

From 1992 […]

We need more Bob Casey’s:

Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey plans to endorse Sen. Barack Obama for president today in Pittsburgh, sending a message both to the state’s primary voters and to undecided superdelegates who might decide the close race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Dan Pfeiffer, deputy communications director for the Obama campaign, confirmed that Casey would announce his support during a rally at the Soldiers and Sailors Military Museum and Memorial and that he would then set out with the Illinois senator on part of a six-day bus trip across the state.

The endorsement comes as something of […]

Wright Flap Doesn’t Hurt Obama

On March 28, 2008 By

Team Clinton must be in a tizzy. They threw the most disgusting attacks at Obama culminating in the Pastor Wright stuff, but they just can’t seem to drag him far enough down to matter:

The videos of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s controversial sermons and Barack Obama’s subsequent speech on race and politics have attracted more public attention than any events thus far in the 2008 presidential campaign. A majority of the public (51%) said they heard “a lot” about the videos, and an even larger percentage (54%) said they heard a lot about Obama’s speech, according to the weekly News […]

Spot freakin’ on:

(CNN) – Sen. Chris Dodd said Thursday a protracted Democratic presidential race would be “devastating” to the party, and argued an agreement should be worked out after the upcoming contests in Pennsylvania, Indiana, and North Carolina.

Dodd, a former presidential candidate and current backer of Barack Obama’s White House bid, told the National Journal he thinks it’s a forgone conclusion Obama will be the Democratic presidential nominee, and said he thinks it’s about time party leaders bring the race to a conclusion.

Listen to Dodd:

“Over the next couple of weeks, as we get into April, it […]
