Of course it isn't...especially so when they invade Iran. Which is why you have Lieberman lining behind McCain right now, with a 'wink and ear to him'.
Anyone noticed the price of food going up? I have. As nearly all shipments to transport it consumes oil.
Not to dim the picture here. But McCain is vulnerable on this!
It's to hammer this home and define him now before he gets anymore time.
That is the question that occurs to me when I read today's poll results.
The new LA Times/Bloomberg poll shows Obama ahead of Hillary Clinton by 5 points in Indiana (40 to 35 percent). The poll also shows Clinton only holds a 5 point lead in Pennsylvania (48 to 43 percent).
In North Carolina, the new survey shows Obama with a 13 point lead (47-34 percent), a margin that is consistent with other recent polls in that state. Pennsylvania votes April 22 while Indiana and North Carolina vote two weeks later on May 6. Check the poll for yourself, it's on CNN.
So I wonder- if Obama loses by a slim margin in PA, then wins NC and IN, will that signal to more superdelegates that it's time to give up on Clinton?
I realize that some will spin this by saying Indiana and NC are not critical dem states for the election, but Pennsylvania is. Okay, worthy of discussion. However, it is notable, as Devin Barber has pointed out today on Gather, that McCain and Clinton are slinging slop at Obama every chance they get, and very little of it is sticking. I just look at the calendar and think, it's gotta stop somewhere. Someday Clinton is going to have to either convince the superdelegates that Obama is hopeless, or she is going to admit that it is over. I would like to see this end before the convention, if possible. Then on with the task of trying to re-knit the unravelling blanket of Dem unity.
If you are a McCain backer, sorry, I disagree, with civility and respect. I am tired of having Republican presidents for most of my adult life. I understand that Bill Clinton was a Dem, but the family had its chance, let's proceed.
