McCain knocks out Rudy

Rudy is gone as well, and has endorsed McCain. Skipping the first five states was a horrible idea on his part. McCain would be the sure Republican nominee at this point if his campaign wasn’t broke; as is, Romney may be able to buy Super Tuesday.

Edwards drops out

A decision based mostly on money, probably. This is probably good for Obama. At this point the Edwards voters will mostly split, but favor him slightly. Like Richardson, it seems Edward’s going to hold his endorsement to his chest for now.

Obama wins SC

Today was an extremely good day for the Obama campaign. I am a little worried about Tennessee. After such a strong majority showing in SC, I think the Memphis vote is largely out of the Clinton machine’s or Herenton’s hands. But this state has a middle and an east, too. Edwards should drop out, though

That’s the last time I link or read the Times

Newspapers should not endorse candiates. At all. Especially two useless and dangerous politicans such as these. Clinton is good enough to veto Republican nonsense, but little else, and McCain will cheerfully attack Iran, start up the draft, and double the national debt in his first 100 days if he can manage it. The “incandescent if

the new story

The media has created another storyline – now it’s Barack vs. Bill, the racial grudge match of the 21st century! I was wondering when Hillary’s husband would enter the arena and play bad cop. So far, rhetorically speaking, I’m not sure it’s a great strategy for Obama to respond personally. Michelle Obama would be the

good writing day

I must have written about 8,000-9,000 words today, finishing off a running commentary on the post-resurrection accounts. It will serve as an outline for one of the dissertation chapters. Now all I have to do is combine that outline with about 6,000 words of citations and I’ll have a chapter draft. Jan 31, the first

Nothing done

Clinton wins Nevada, but… Although Clinton won the overall state vote, Obama took more delegates because of the areas where he won. CNN projects that Obama will pick up 13 delegates to Clinton’s 12. Bizarre. What a hard-fought primary it’s been! He could use SC next Saturday.

the reverse spin

Billionaire insulted: “As an African American, I am frankly insulted that the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Hillary and Bill Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues when Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood that I won’t say what he was

Obama ‘inhuman’?

From Frank Rich: Not only did Mrs. Clinton betray some (but not too many) hurt feelings with genuine humor, she upped the ante by flattering Barack Obama as “very likable.” Which prompted the Illinois senator to match Mrs. Clinton’s most human moment to date with the most inhuman of his own. Pul-eeeze. Rich usually writes

keep preaching, and let the white folks handle it

Recently the Obama campaign put out a list of strange remarks that the Clinton campaign has made recently, in regards to race. I find such a memo interesting in itself since Obama has been good about not playing the race card so far. Frankly, most of the stuff on the list is pretty run of
