post primary

I think Hillary's campaign blew it in Wisconsin. They didn't show up until the last minute and then on the day before the election, they went negative. really negative. Negative TV, negative direct mail. All attacking Obama.

He kept on with the message that's been working for him: hope, change, repeat.

She's in a tough spot. How do you attack 'hope?' Not very effectively, evidently. She came across as mean, (rather than tough) and as defensive (rather than substantial.)

I know at least 3 people who were planning to vote for another candidate but changed their vote to Obama at the last minute. Seems like a lot of other people did too. It was a blow-out.

Texas and Ohio will be interesting.

I will admit it was a happy morning to wake up to NPR for a change.

Yea, it does seem like her campaign has made a series of screw-ups.
