Hillary Dominates The Kentucky Vote

I've spent years scrubbing myself scabby in disinfecting showers after the mere mention of the name "Clinton," so why do I find myself almost admiring Hillary's tenacious scrap in a fight she's already lost? Sure, she's not mathematically eliminated, but I need to stick with my previous declaration of her defeat rather than remote possibilities from mathematicians who have given us things like: If X^2 + Y^2 = 15, and X * Y = 5, what is X + Y? I mean, really. The fact is that Obama has already won the nomination unless some lethal skeleton clatters from his closet or he does something absolutely stupid, and what are the odds of that happening?

My almost admiration for Hillary surely doesn't come from her policy plans, which are just about as stable as my brother's bowels after a Texas chili contest. No, without a doubt it stems from her street-fighting mentality. I love a fighter and she kicks, bites, screams and just won't stop. And after her ego-pumping Kentucky victory, why should she?

“Tonight we’ve achieved an important victory,” Clinton told an enthusiastic crowd at her victory rally in Louisville, Ky. “It’s not just Kentucky bluegrass that’s music to my ears, it’s the sound of your overwhelming vote of confidence, even in the face of some pretty tough odds.”
Ack. Oof. Just threw up in my mouth. Anyway, you can't blame her for the Sally Fields display of enthusiasm, she didn't just beat Obama in the state, she destroyed him by a 2-1 margin.

“We’re back. We continue to raise money, we continue to win states. This thing goes on. I don’t know why people are saying this is over,” Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe told FOX News.

I've never worn a deerstalker hat, but I suspect that some people are saying this is over because it would require the Super talented Delegates of the Democratic Party to overturn the popular vote for Clinton to get the nomination. But forget about that for today. Let's live in the now. Bask in the moment. Once again the Clinton machine has thrust forward toward a climactic finally, and this time they didn't even use a cigar.

    You know Khaki I find myself cheering for Hillary as well. I would definately rather have her than Obama. That is my rationale. She scares me less. I am afraid Obama is some sort of hypnotist in real life and will do his magic and win the Presidency. I would take Hill/Bill any day over that traind wreck. I almost resent Obama for thinking he deserves to lead our nation. Hillary at least has done her time. She's familiar. I can handle that. I am "conserve"ative. :)N

    I understand where you are coming from Nikki when you say you would prefer Hillary over Obama. That is what I was thinking with McCain when all the other Republicans were still in it. More so with Rudy, but McCain for sure was the safest person to lose the general election to. Too bad all the conservative personalities in the media realized your point too late and that they should have been attacking Obama more than Clinton a long time ago.

    The most shocking thing about the McCain nomination is that he (along with Rudy) wa the centrist candidate and he still won it. That's rare for either party. I think in this case it was just a matter of Romney and Huckabee splitting the base.

    Splitting the vote is exactly what happened. I was shocked that people even m While I won't vote for McCain, I would be totally fine with his win considering the options he beat out. And the only reason I won't vote for him, even though my views are closer to his than Obama's, is because of the people he will continue to have to pander to. If he had to pander to the centrists of his party, he would have my vote. But that isn't the reality of politics.

    I think Hill would be a safe democrat to have in office. I think she's be willing to compromise like her hubby.

    Hills goal now is to make money and 2012. She continues to slam Obama so McCain can win. That's what she wants. She doesn't care that her party will lose and McCain might (in her view) destroy the country, because that's her plan for 2012.

    DB, you are not a lost cause. I still have a few months to convince you.

    Freadom, with a conspiracy theory like that people might start to think you're a democrat :-). Actually, don't you always find yourself thinking that the Clintons are up to something? I know I do.
