The Bitter Vote Carries Clinton

Exit polls in Pennsylvania showed Clinton hanging on to key voting blocs — women, seniors, whites, union members and lower-income households. The polls showed she was leading in union households by 57 to 42 percent, and among seniors by 60 to 39 percent.
That's right, those bitter gun toting Bible thumpers delivered their message: Barack, you may have some fancy book learnin', but you don't know nuthin' 'bout running a country. The rural Pennsylvanians have given Hillary Clinton her primary victory.

And here's what keeps buzzing around my head. Why do I see Hillary as some kind of Aesopian tortoise? Is it the Clinton mystique that makes me think that she could defy mathematical possibility and actually win this thing?

    I was thinking the same thing when I was watching the returns tonight...nice going Obama! He is far to arrogant. Maybe he can give one of his pretty speeches and make everything alright! :)N

    All this Obama bashing of late has me actually rooting for Hillary. Not that I like Hillary or anything, don't get too excited there.

    I actually feel the same way about Hillary . . . a first for me and the Clintons. In a way the media is treating her like a Republican.
