Clinton wins in Ohio, Texas, and Rhode Island do help her rekindle her aspirations. Both candidates need the super delegates to reach the 2,025 needed to secure winner status. Its not over yet.
There is the idea that the drama of the race between Obama and Clinton will be so powerful that it captures the imagination of the media. In other words, it might become the hottest topic, even if McCain is out there revisiting Bush's talking points.
If this is true then the prolonged race between Obama and Clinotn could benefit the Democrats.
There's always a justification for any perspective, right? I'm searching for some comforting perspective here myself and this media frenzy notion seems helpful.
NYT: Clinton Success Alters Delegate Race’s Dynamic
Mr. Obama now has 1,299 delegates, compared with 1,180 for Mrs. Clinton, based on a count of pledged and projected delegates prepared by The New York Times. A candidate needs 2,025 to claim the nomination, a figure that neither Mrs. Clinton nor Mr. Obama can reach without the votes of so-called superdelegates — party officials and elected Democrats who are awarded automatic seats.Equity Crisis
The article is ridiculously small but the words are disastrous. I will copy it in its entirety.
The Federal Reserve says Americans' percentage of equity in their homes has fallen below 50 percent for the first time on record since 1945.
That's a big deal and shows the sorry state of economic affairs that many have. 45 is the end of WW2 and that is a critical point in the economic upsurge of Americans. We are moving into pre-WW2 disparity and functionality. What's next - a major depression? Let's hope not. Wall street will not take the news well.The Bush economic policy in the simplest terms
Take as much publicly held money and resources as possible i.e. taxes, land, property, anything of value, and proceed to transfer that wealth into the hands of large corporations, particularly those corporate individuals that are friendly to your administration.
The upside - A few greedy SOBs get ultra super wealthy.
The downside - Just take a look around - recession, inflation, foreclosure, unemployment, endless war, record debt, etc etc etc etc.
