President Obama – off to a bad start. Change you can’t believe in?

Well he’s off to a really bad start.  Here’s just a few ‘highlights’: He’s fighting to restructure healthcare in the country while the economy collapses. He’s had a string of tax cheating nominees and appointments to his cabinet. He’s reneged on his commitment to get out of Iraq, taking longer to end ‘combat’ than he … Read more

Rolling Stone magazine endorses Barack Obama

[amazonify]1400082773:right:product:thehigginswebsit[/amazonify]Rolling Stone Magazine has published a great article endorsing Barack Obama for President. While I don’t agree with everything the article’s author, Jann Wenner, has written, or everything Barack Obama says for that matter, Barack Obama is very compelling, seems to be the real deal, and this article lays it out very nicely.

The article also lays out nicely why Hillary Clinton‘s “skills” and her campaign are so lacking. Despite her, her husband, and surrounding team having just about all the credentials and contacts anyone could dream of, they have almost succeeded in snatching defeat from a certain victory.

The Rolling Stone piece also mentions Barack Obama’s semi-autobiographical book, Dreams from My Father, which I just ordered from Amazon.com.

Obama vs. Clinton on Tuesday

The Texas and Ohio primaries are on Tuesday and if Hillary doesn’t win both, she’s in big trouble and even if she does win both, she needs to win by reasonable margins or the overall delegate race won’t change much. Hard to believe any polls at this time since they’ve been wrong so often and besides, who wants to talk to a pollster at this point? And if I see one more Frank Luntz ‘group’ evaluation on FoxNews I’ll puke since they’ve all been meaningless fluff.

I consider it unlikely Obama will win both states, especially since the governor of Ohio has endorsed Clinton, but if he does, and considering that Bill Clinton has already basically said his wife must win both states, will she gracefully bow out QUICKLY?

A wild U.S. Presidential election year, and ‘inevitable’ Hillary may lose the nomination

Having just re-started my blog I didn’t get to ramble about the fun to date, but now we’re down to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on the Democrat side, and John McCain on the Republican side. Oh yes, and now Ralph Nader as an independent. 🙂

Hillary Clinton (and Bill) are certainly not about to go down without a fight, but she’s looking increasingly like a flailing wrestler pinned to the floor. She’s being outspent, outperformed, and outclassed. You’ve got to hand it to Barack Obama and his team – they’ve done an amazing job. It’s not over yet, but if Hillary Clinton doesn’t win the Democrat nomination, I think it’s safe to say she blew it in many ways. Let’s go through some.
