Not Looking too Good
Posted by Ryan on February 11, 2008
Here are a few of She Who Must Not Be Named’s problems facing tomorrow’s “Potomac Primary” of Maryland, Virginia and DC:
The latest revised count of pledged delegates (not counting all of those shifty “super-delegates”) has O’Bama with a slight lead over She Who Must Not Be Named.
On top of that, O’Bama’s won 17 contests to her 8 in the past week or so.
SWMNBN fired her campaign manager after this weekend’s defeat. This is the same campaign manager who served as SWMNBN’s chief of staff when SWMNBN was First Lady, so this must have been a hard decision.
Maryland and DC have huge numbers of African-American voters, but Virginia does not. That’s a bit of good news for her… but what if she can’t take Virginia despite the demographic advantage? And what do those pesky super-delegates do if SWMNBN loses the pledged delegates by Convention time? Don’t many of them owe their careers to she and her husband’s co-Presidency?
In truth I’d rather be where I am, a Republican mulling over McCain, than a Democrat fighting in the trenches of an Uncivil War, which looks like its not about to end any time soon.
