Political Blogging - A Presumptive Nominee; Not So Presumptive

I've never been so proud of being an Hooiser.

Two weeks ago I said that North Carolina would be the coup de grace for the Clinton campaign. Not so (though North Carolina did go for Obama by 14 points). Rather, it was Indiana, and the Obama strong-holds of Marion and Lake counties.

While writing, the Gary votes are being counted and reported, and the 20,000 vote lead Clinton holds to is slowly eroding. Monroe county absentee votes (mostly from faculty and students of IU) are still not reported, but will certainly break strong for Obama.

It has been reported that Clinton has cancelled all morning show interviews, and all other public appearances for tomorrow.

The Clinton campaign sent out a fund-raising email in the past hour, but didn't ask for more funds.

The show is over.
Tomorrow expect media spin that praises Obama's comeback, and at least 12 super-delegates pledging for Obama. The stories will be not if, but when Hillary drops out, and who will Obama choose for the V-P spot.

When are you guys going to pull out of this never ending campaign and pick somebody I can vote against?

Ya see the thing about Obama is that my wife will have a lot of trouble picking out shoes to go with the new burka he will make her wear.

Hey, did you get my email?

Al,

I am sorry? I don't know if I did or not, because I don't know who you are?

Sincerely,
Jason

Another atheist at a Cath. institution... if that jogs your memory. (Sorry I'm not trying to post a lot of Google-able info here.) I emailed the address you have listed on this blog from my .edu address. So maybe check your spam? -AT(L)
