Obama (Ba)Rocks Hillary

February 20, 2008

The black avatar of JFK cleaned the clock of the erstwhile inevitable Democratic nominee yesterday. Obama stunned Hillary as he took Wisconsin by 17 percentage points and Hawaii by 51 percentage points. Obama continued his running of the table with ten consecutive primary/caucus wins after Super Tuesday. He has closed the Texas race and continues to tighten the Ohio one. James Carville, Clinton friend extraordinaire and CNN pundit, said that Hillary has to win Texas and/or Ohio or the race is over. Bill Kristol of the NYT added that she must win both to continue. Surprisingly, Bill Clinton agreed in an appearance in TX. Hillary looks desperate as stories surface that her campaign is trying to not only woo superdelegates but Obama-pledged delegates. Will her March 4 firewalls in TX and OH go up in flames like her fellow New Yorker Rudy’s did in FL or will she be the Comeback Clinton II?
