Tuesday Pre-emptive Election Wrap

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

As the chief political correspondent, it is my job to do the post-game on primaries. But I probably won't have time tomorrow, so I'm going to summerize the Mississippi primary in advance.

  • Obama wins handily, declares himself the frontrunner
  • Clinton claims that Mississippi is "not representative of the country at large". In other words, she thinks there are too many black people, which is somehow unfair.
  • McCain says some stuff. No one listens, and the old guy gets tired and takes a nap.

I'll post more information as it becomes available...

*** UPDATE ***

I forgot one prediction, which was on full display last night:

  • Black people will vote for Obama. White people will vote for Hillary. And the media will marvel over this fact, declaring with great shock that "there seems to be a racial divide in Mississippi". In other similarly shocking news: oxygen is good, and having 6 dollars is better than having 5 dollars.

I think you are dead-on right.

Way to go Nostradamus. From what I have seen this morning, you are right.

I think the Obama campaign read BMacs blog. I received this from the Obama campaign this morning.

"Dear Robert,

When we won Iowa, the Clinton campaign said it's not the number of states you win, it's "a contest for delegates."

When we won a significant lead in delegates, they said it's really about which states you win.

When we won South Carolina, they discounted the votes of African-Americans.

When we won predominantly white, rural states like Idaho, Utah, and Nebraska, they said those didn't count because they won't be competitive in the general election.

When we won in Washington State, Wisconsin, and Missouri -- general election battlegrounds where polls show Barack is a stronger candidate against John McCain -- the Clinton campaign attacked those voters as "latte-sipping" elitists.

And now that we've won more than twice as many states, the Clinton spin is that only certain states really count."

The letter continues to ask for $$$, but you get the point.
