The Super Tuesday results are in and while some pundits are claiming a Hillary comeback against the rising Barack tide, I still find the trends moving Obama’s way because he has the spirit to inspire others with his vision and poetry just like other political greats before him.
- Obama won 14 states Hillary won 8.
- Obama won as many White male votes as Hillary.
- Obama won more White votes than Hillary.
- Obama won 80% of the Black vote.
The most interesting number from last night was the overwhelming way in
which Obama won when he won. Hillary won a single state with 60% or
more of the vote while Barack won 8 states at 60-80% of the vote.
Here’s Obama’s win spread:
- North Dakota 61%
- Illinois 64%
- Georgia 66%
- Minnesota 67%
- Colorado 67%
- Alaska at 74%
- Kansas at 74%
- Idaho at 80%
fact that Obama won Missouri by a whisker should concern Hillary more
than her “comeback” win in California that was no comeback at all. She
was always ahead in California and I never believed the “Obama will win
by 20 points” spin spewed by the Clinton camp to elongate and
exaggerate her false comeback win in the Golden State.
Moving forward, Hillary’s biggest concern is playing her gender
stereotype when it is convenient for her. She cried again and it’s getting old.
Sure, she’s keeping the women in her camp, but the more people are
exposed to Obama’s message, the more votes he gets. Hillary is not
gaining supporters. Obama is gaining new supporters as well as
Hillary’s former supporters.
Many wonder why Hillary is seeping support instead of building it and
much of it still has to be pinned on Bill’s heels.
What the Clintons fail to realize is that when Bill was in office and got caught up in his awful Monica Blue Dress Blowjob Scandal
— and the subsequent Ken Starr inquisition prosecution and impending
impeachment drama — a lot of us leapt to his defense. We didn’t like
the blowjob, but we were more fed up by the Republican desire to pick
through the panties of his former conquests.
We were infuriated by the silly, pent-up impeachment scandal. We stood
with the man, we protected the man, we invested our very identity in
his presidency. We believed in him.
Then Bill went to South Carolina for Hillary and tried to lynch Obama
with the sort of lies and personal viciousness that was perpetuated on
him during his presidency — and those of us who were previously loyal
— were repulsed by his behavior.
South Carolina will forever live in Bill Clinton infamy within us right
there along with our hatred of Ken Starr. Bill took on the role of
political Hit Man and he took to the job too well. Obama’s White vote
doubled from 20% to 42% between South Carolina and Super Tuesday.
Clinton lynching did not take. We will never forgive his betrayal.
Obama is rising on our tide of hope and good wishes just as we floated
Bill’s boat during his impeachment. We will not be denied now, as then,
by the cruel intentions of dark hearts or a processed morality strung
along by voter polls and fine-tuned political machinations.
