The spin goes on..
Listening to the Talking Heads on MSNBC last night, I was struck by how they sanitize the results by breaking them down into race and gender:
Per the exit polls, 47% of the Pennsylvania Democratic electorate last night was made up of white women, higher than any other race/gender subgroup. Clinton ended up winning them by more than 30 points, 66%-34%; in Ohio, she won this group, 67%-31%. The question that everyone seems to be asking now is: Why can't Obama put Clinton away?
So, now...instead of Hillary being DOA, its 'why can't Obama deliver the knock-out punch'?
I find myself getting wrapped up in this bullshit, drawn into wondering aloud about Obama too when BAM..it hits me.
Every state hasn't weighed in yet. Fuck the pundits. It's all spin. Just like Hillary claiming she is now ahead in the popular vote..if you count FL and MI.
But you can't count the votes from FL and MI because the only person on both ballots was good old Hillary. The Obama camp is putting the following spin out there to counter Team Hillary's email this morning:
-- Obama leads among pledged delegates, and Clinton will have to win about 70% of the remaining ones to overtake Obama on this measure. -- to get within 100 pledged delegates of Obama, Clinton will have to win 57% of the remaining ones -- and when looking at the total delegate score (pledged delegates and superdelegates), Obama is about 300 away from clinching the nomination; Clinton, according to NBC's count, is more than 430 delegates away.
Damn, I am mighty tired of everyone's spin..its making me dizzy.
It's moving day!!!!!!!!!!!!
