Two months ago, Hillary was 20 points up in SC.
Regardless of the final outcome, Obama's insurgent campaign has been truly remarkable.

1. And 2 weeks ago Obama was up double digits in N.H. Do polls really matter anymore?
The polling system seems flawed. Perhaps it's because many have moved away from landlines in favor of cell phones.

2. Big Deal!
Obama should be up, he gets more positive media attention than any candidate I have seen in recent memory! Pundits are scared to attack him because they might look racist. I mean look how Bill Clinton has been treated since attacking Obama. Bill Clinton has fought for african americans his whole poitical life and they(not all) have turned on him as soon as they thought Obama had a chance!

3. Obama's Swiftboating of Clinton on Race has been very successful.
Shameful, but successful.

6. Yes. The Af. Americans are leaving the Clintons by the thousands, which is why...
the Clintons are spinning it to read "the whites are leaving Obama!" (which is of course not true...his numbers have gone way up because the Af. Americans have switched to him, while his white support has remained steady).

8. Well if Obama does like you say and keep the white vote, he should win the nomination.

10. That was before the fucker played the race card
He went from losing the black vote to 81% and Hillary went from leading the black vote to less than one fifth.

12. I have this right?

You Jackson Dem are calling a legitimate Democratic candidate for the Presidency of the United States a fucker?

Not only do you show your own racist dark side, but your credibility here goes out the window!

Sour grapes are a bitch.

13. dont taser me bro
Edited on Sun Jan-27-08 02:20 AM by jackson_dem
I've never been more disappointed in my young political life. Edwards barely scored delegates here. I am totally trashed too. Askj me tomorrow for my real thinking.

Quit playing the race card. Calling him a fucker has 0 to do with race. I called SC voters that too. I don't want to hear them cry when Obama or Hillary send their jkobs overseas. I hope they send ALL their jobs overseas! :headbang:

19. JD, I understand your grief.
It is not often the candidate I supports wins.

I know how bad it feels, when your candidates loses. You support a good candidate and I am very surprised that
his message has not gotten more traction in this race.

And just to explain. I did not think the name calling was racist. That was the disrespectful part. The racist part was
accusing Obama of using the race card. I think the race issue is to his disadvantage and he knows it.

It was to the Clintons advantage and they are still using it. Albeit the Jesse Jackson comment today.

I sincerely hope that whomever is our nominee, she or he will help create new jobs to replace those that are bound for
that faraway continent on the other side of the world.

I sincerely hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

I apologize for the bitter posts I have made tonight. See you folks tomorrow.

PS I have always said both Obama and Hillary played the race card.

11. The power of the human mind to rationalize
never ceases to amaze me. I am of course talking about the responses to your excellent reminder that this Obama
victory tonight is historic.
