Obama loses out

ok, so

Barack Obama is closely linked to some nut-case preacher who seems to want to pick political fights using (let's just call it) inflamatory language.

Hillary Clinton told a lie. Hillary told a lie involving the US military - talk about pissing into the wind when you're allergic to piss! Asking for trouble.
Undoubtedly, that's a big 1 - 0 win to Obama.

Mr Obama has a confirmed 1,621 delegates

Mrs Clinton has a confirmed 1,499 delegates
2 - 0

Hillary's attempts to get Florida's votes acknowledged towards the delegate count was unsuccessful. Poor you.
3 - 0

And because you just don't lie and try and taking credit for anything linked to do with the military in America, especially when no credit is due, that's another 'this-story-won't-just-disappear'-bonus score for Obama.
4 - 0.

And yet, despite my earlier prediction of an Obama triumph, despite all of the above, despite the fact that she makes me think of an angry lesbian who wants to be in charge of a mutha-load of weaponry, I'm changing my mind and predicting a Hillary win. Believe me, I don't want it to happen, but I'm saying, even in the face of that 4 - 0 drubbing recently, I think she'll do it. Despite leaking that they'll go with whoever has the most delegates come convention-time, the super-delegates are going to stick with her because that's what the old boys network does - and we all know she's an old boy.

It's the Land of the Free if you want to go to a baseball game or eat a burger or open a shop.

It's the Land of Who You Know for anything important.

Those who know me know I love to be right. Christ, I hope I'm wrong.

Do you not think they'll just carve it up somehow?

These super-delegates might convince Obama to step aside somehow by promising him the earth next time around. He is a young man...

Anyway they could stitch it up to stop John McCain hogging the limelight?

If Obama did that, his whole credibility would be shot because what he is saying is that change is needed now. If he turns round and says, "Actually, I can hang about to get my day in the sun and maybe we can try that change in anything up to 8 years" then what's he saying about all his rhetoric now?

Doubt he'd do it. Don't think he's a team player when it comes to stuff like that, in fact, I think that's what he's trying to stand for, the opposite of such politics.
