    Why, please ask me why we have to hear as much about some political nobody who had stock footage of her featured in a thirty second ad? Bread & Circus.

    She's right.

    Hillary has almost no chance to win the nomination.

    Oh, and Obama Girl is hot.

    Maybe it's because she can't? I don't know how many times you've been told this, but here it goes again:

    http://www.newsweek.com/id/119010

    It is a statistical improbability that she will get enough delegates in the remaining states to win. She will have to get at least 60% of the vote in every remaining state. Otherwise, she will have to depend on super delegates, but if she does that it will split the democratic party in half and hand the election to the Republicans. Obama is leading in elected delegates and the popular vote. Even if she wins in PA (and she probably will), her net gain will likely be too small to gain a lead over Obama. Obama will then go on to dominate in NC and OR, more than effectively erasing any "gains" Clinton would have made in PA.

    I don't know about the rest, but she's very hot. She should promise a striptease if Obama wins. THAT's something that would help fighting abstention!

    I'll go ahead and strike the discordant note... stevento, SHE'S NOT AN OBAMA SUPPORTER. :eek: Her video is completely unhelpful, and stupid. I like the clever video editting, but all she is... is a political/media opportunist.

    Obama Girl didn't vote, surprised?

    SUPPORTERS actually think its important to VOTE. They don't go to parties the night before and feel disappointed they couldn't make it back to their district. They VOLUNTEER. They speak out of the issues. While she might generate some media publicity for Obama, it's not necessarily "good" publicity. Unlike Will.I.Am, who's purpose for creating his video WAS to promote people voting (and not necessarily exclusively for Obama).

    I do not like this woman. She is the epitome of vacuousness. The Democratic party doesn't need more CRAP hitting the blogosphere about Obama, even if its semi-positive crap. They need party unity... not insult-driven cheerleading.

    Don't forget to use the "zoom" feature in Universal Access. It might make it easier on your eyes.

    What did I just see? A political video or a "look at my knockers for my 15 minutes of fame" video? Truly awful all round.

    You forget how puritanical we are here. Even if we do spend more on porn than almost anything else. We do it in secret. In public we'd be outraged. Especially those who didn't like Obama, who would watch it over and over and over again just to prove how bad it was and how bad he is. Guilt by association and all.

    Please, they aren't that stupid as to do such a thing.

    Yikes. That's because you don't think much of his campaign. If you pay attention however, anything from his campaign has an animation at the end of it with the sun coming over the rolling red, white, and blue fields. This is pretty much on every video they release on YouTube (when they produce the content). Also, here is their YouTube account.

    Cheers,

    Obama is actually saying she can keep going as long as she's like, but everyone knows it's over for her, except for her:

    Democratic race over? Clinton doesn't think so

    Suddenly I can't help thinking of Bush, who never admits mistake or failure, even when it's obvious.

    Why is it that some members / supporters of the Democratic Party are so fervent in their call's to deny the remaining electorate their democratic vote?

    there are people saying hillary should quit for the good of the party and i see what they are saying.
    but the people who are saying hillary can't get it without supers saving her are just plain wrong.
    i'm going to rehash my what if argument again.
    what if she does get 65% in PA, IN and NC?
    what if MI and FL are counted after all?
    then she wins.

    That seems like a lot of what ifs to me. Is it possible for all of that to happen, yes it is. Is it probable that all that will happen, no it is not.

    And I don't see Michigan being counted as is because Obama's name wasn't even on the fraking ballot!!!!!!!

    That's a lot of what ifs. Besides, Looking at current polls, if anyone's going to win IN and NC by 65% it'll be Obama.

    Chuck Todd said on Keith Olbermann tonight (it was on NBC tonight for a special) that if Obama wins those states with enough of a margin, they can go ahead and count FL and MI as they stand (no revote, no 50% vote, just count them normally), and he'll still be ahead. They might do that (and he'll probably go along with it, if that's the case) just to shut her up. Which would really be kinda funny because she'll have fought so hard for this "Make FL and MI count" crap and it won't even matter.

    Well, most of us just want it to be over, no matter who it is. Just, as has been posted several time, Hillary has practically no chance at this point. It would have to be a blow out across the board and she'd have to have a fairly large majority of the superdelegates, which isn't really possible. Even then though. Plus, how bad would it look if Obama wins the delegate and popular vote, as he is, but then the superdelegates vote her in? I thought she'd win. Figured I'd be holding my nose and voting for her come Nov against whatever Repub. But Obama is winning, and looks to be taking it, so I guess he's our guy. Used to like McCain, but if he's going to support Bush's failed policy, I'd even vote for Hillary over him at this point. But I won't be, because she can't really win this.

    the thing is this the first time in a long time that states like NC have mattered because they're primaries are so late.
    we're used to having a nod by this time of election season and i can see why people are like "lets just end this already".
    there are a thousand and one possibilities that would give hillary a win WITHOUT supers pulling her out of the hole

    Other than a blow out, which isn't going to happen, what would those be?
