Hillary MUST win North Carolina! [UPDATED]

Update [2008-4-11 22:5:47 by FOB92]:DISCLAIMER - This diary was inspired by the creative piece Obama Must Win Pennsylvania that was formerly on the rec list. Please read that diary to understand the context of the message below.
-----------------------------------

Let's get real! It's mid April and Hillary hasn't closed the deal. Sure, she has got a slight super delegate lead, but she has also failed over EIGHT times to end the nomination: first in Iowa, then in South Carolina (despite Bill's best efforts); next on Super Tuesday, then on the FEB 9-10 contests, after that she could have wrapped it up in the Potomac Primaries, and don't forget all her family's efforts on the FEB 19 (HI, WI), and finally she had two more recent chances that slipped by in WY and Mississippi.

And now Hillary's campaign is lowering expectations yet again, this time for North Carolina, another key battleground state.

RALEIGH -- Officials with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign Monday downplayed the importance of the North Carolina primary, as both she and Barack Obama announced plans to stump in the state this week.
- - - - - - - -
"It's not good enough for her to have a win in Pennsylvania and then turn around and lose in North Carolina," said veteran Democratic strategist Bill Carrick, who is not working with either candidate. "She needs to basically win everything that's left on the calendar."
http://www.fayobserver.com/article?id=28 9531

What's wrong with this picture?

Has there ever been a Democratic nominee who lost over THIRTY contests?

It is Hillary who needs to win North Carolina. It's her last chance to prove to the super delegates that she can win a contest outside her 10-state strategy (that can't be used against the maverick McCain). Oh . . . wait the GOP will lose handily to either Democratic nominee once the $40,000,000 monster run by Brock, Begala, and Soros ruins the Arizona Senator.

Never mind . . . there is no such thing as a must-win State for either candidate. It is all about delegates:

Howard Wolfson now says it's been about delegates from the get-go:

"All along we have said this is a battle for delegates," said Howard Wolfson.
http://vermontdailybriefing.com/?p=840

So are there MUST-WIN States . . . or is Howard Wolfson correct that it is all about the delegates?

WAIT . . . maybe it is about electoral-votes in the States you won . . . NO, because that would leave out Puerto Rico . . . and even HRC-Loyalist Begala said that was silly.

SIGH . . . I can't wait for the remaining States to vote, so we can trounce McCain!

This is my 3rd request to delete this diary because it plagerizes mine.

I actually spend a lot of time writing my original pieces, using my words, my thoughts, my language, my creative expression.

If you disagree, find a way to say that without copying my language.

This is unacceptable and I will be filing a complaint with myDD if you don't delete this immediately.

Re: Hillary has to win them all to have chance,
It is not plagiarism, it's mostly parody. Your diary was about PA; this one is about NC.

This diary also has much better formatting and a nice map. Graphics are cool and help to tell the story. And this diary is a lot more "fact-based" than your diary, which I find misleading.

Good luck with your complaint. I've been complaining about users on this site not respecting "Fair Use" guidelines with ridiculous complete "cut-and-paste" diaries, with no additional commentary, or even sourcing.

It's amazing how easy it is to mock the Hillary arguments in most of the diaries posted here.  That you can't see how weak your arguments are, and how easily they can be made against your own candidate, is mind-boggling.

This is a parody of your post.  It is not plagiarism any more than it is plagiarism for SNL to say "Yes We Can", or for others to make fun of the "Insult 48 states srategy" that was put forth by Mark Penn.

Hillary's taking it to the convention

the same way that Ron Paul is taking it to the convention.

Really, he has just as much chance of winning.  The Republican pledged delegates aren't really "pledged," either.  They could all just spontaneously shift to his side, either through some terrible mass realization that McCain is a terrible candidate and Paul is hip and slick, or it could happen through some random quantum effect.  Protons in the brains of McCain's delegates could spontaneously decay in sync, causing them to switch their vote.

It's not likely, but it could happen, and it's allowed by the rules.  You're not against the rules are you?  

Yup.  It will be Hillary vs. Paul this November.  And Ralph Nader will win with 34% of the vote!

This is the crappiest diary i've read.  For one thing, Hillary won Nevada.  Also, are the dems really gonna nominate someone who can't even carry the white vote in a Democratic Primary?  Obama lost California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Ohio, Texas, Florida, Arizona, New York, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, TN, AR, and others.  He lost 8 of the largest states in the U.S.  How can the dems nominate someone like that?  He cannot win.

Re: Hillary MUST win North Carolina!

RE: this is the crappiest diary I've read.  To some folks, facts are their friends; to others facts are something to deny and minimize.  Its clear that you are imbibing the koolaid being spoon fed you by Penn/Wolfson.  They have done the job they are always hired to do.  Promote misinformation, sew division wherever it can be sewn to pair away votes, no matter how inaccurate or incendiary, and use whatever racial, gender, religious, class or other social divisions- all to insure that their corporate clients (who are behind TWO candidates out of three, and both work with Penn & Co.) succeed in disempowering the vote, and canting things in their favor.

These are the same folks who are destabilizing countries abroad, and enacting divisions the globe over to override concerns for human rights- like child labor laws, the right to organize.  Mark Penn has engaged in microtargeting- pitting social groups against each other: to make manipulate citizens into voting against their own self-interest.

We also have a torturer President in the White house who has eroded the Constitution.  The powers he arrogated to himself will be available to the next President unless there is someone with the Constitutional chops, and lobby-free agenda, to repair and restore checks and balances.

You folks are missing the most central issues of this election in favor of a candidate who is more like the Republican opponent, in terms of her associations and choices, than her opponent.

The Bagdad Bob misinformation is consistent with Mark Penn misinformation.

It's not because I'm rooting for Obama to win the nomination. That would be petty. No, I recommended it because I have Very Serious Concerns about Clinton.

You see, I must dutifully share my grim realization of the future before us, in which McCain will blow her out 53 states to 1.But like a modern-day Cassandra,I am powerless to stop it. I do not take pleasure in this. I have your best interests at heart.

If Clinton wins the nomination, we are doomed. Doomed.

We really need to get a different picture.  I've seen it lots.  We need a new color for Hillary that doesn't look like the color for states not voted.  Says something about the people who put it together.

Perhaps that's your point when you ask "What's wrong with this picture?".

And WOW!  When you realize that Hillary has only won this tiny little belt in the south, and a smidgen of states in the north east!

I'd like to see a map that shows the margin of each victory.  Obama has lots ranging from 80% -50%.  Most of Hillary's are in 10% range.

Re: Hillary MUST win Pennsylvania

by big double digits or she is dead. She needs a blowout or she will have no credibility - the donors know this if her other fans don't.

Clinton has been continually lowering her benchmark of a "decisive win" in PA from a 20 point win to less than ten. Is she going to claim that her campaign is still viable if she wins by 5 points (and falls further behind in delegates?) Seems like masochism to let yourself twist in the wind like that.

If immitation is the greatest form of flattery, then you have given TexasDarlin the biggest of big wet kisses.

But if you are trying to draw attention to the electoral map challenges that Obama faces, then I think you are doing your candidate a big disservice. Do you see Obama talking about how he stacks up against Clinton in the electoral match up?

No.

Why?

Because he gets creamed. Without MI, FL, OH we lose. Hillary can carry those and OR and WA. We win.

It is that simple. That's why the media is terrified of her getting the nomination.

Re: Hillary MUST win North Carolina!

There will be new POSC curriculum written after this election. You can't look at electoral maps of the past in this election. Obama is going to employ a "cold war" strategy on McCain . . . out spend until McCain is stretched thin. Obama WILL win Alaska, and he WILL make McCain waste much of his Federal money in Texas. Obama WILL win Virginia, and make McCain earn every vote in Georgia.

Wait until we pick a VP, and get a bounce. Read the front-page story on MyDD about McCain's FAUX lead.

I also agree that HRC will beat him too, but she will need the conventional map.

If wishes were fishes...
And if wishes were fishes, I know where I'd be,
Casting my net in the dark rolling sea;
And if my net's empty when it comes back to shore,
I'll throw it away and go fishing no more.

Re: Hillary MUST win North Carolina!

The Democrats are not winning Florida this year...  I don't care if we nominate Jesus...  ain't gonna happen.  McCain will likely tap Gov Christ for veep or another nice Southern guy... and we have a gay marriage amendment on the ballot this year...  GOP will be out in force...

Re: Hillary MUST win North Carolina! [UPDATED]

This is a violation of common-law copyright in that you used my creative work without my consent and did not blockquote it and source it. Working within a forum such as myDD does not entitle you to ignore such obligations.

The update is insufficient. You cut and paste entire passages from my diary without proper citation. Find your own words; don't steal mine.

This diary should be deleted (or cease and desist'd) immediately.

This is my 4th request to you, the author.  This request has also been made to myDD admin.

Re: Hillary MUST win North Carolina! [UPDATED]

"common-law" . . . is that what they use in Texas?

Sorry, city-slickers like me only know real law.

BTW . . . the update wasn't to appease you . . . it was so late-comers to the diary got the joke.

Even if it's deleted ...

I think he got your goat. At this point it might be better to ignore it.

Re: Even if it's deleted ...

No, I will not "ignore" plagiarism and violation of copyright.

The diary needs to be deleted.

He can write a diary disagreeing with me, but he is not permitted to use my creative work without complete quotations and credit to me, the author of the words that he has cut and paste.

Request #5:  delete it now.

Re: Even if it's deleted ...

Oh, for crying out loud, get a frickin' life! Have you really never been poked fun of? Honestly, all of this hyperbole on BOTH SIDES is getting old. In my opinion, tt is especially bad on this site. Maybe that's my opinion because I avoid anything on DailyKos that's not on the front page and ignore half of what is. Still, it's depressing. This blog used to be my favorite. Take a chill pill Darlin'. It's one in the morning- go to bed. I sure am.

You would do yourself well...

Pay particular attention to the section on copyright, that should give you a decent idea of why you are sans-leg-to-stand-on in this instance.

Re: Even if it's deleted ...

Todd and Jonathan let it ride on the rec list . . . what happen to your official action?

Do you know how bad you are making HRC supporters look?

You might have won me over if you had a sense of humor. You keep proving my point . . . so go ahead and keep posting your demands on here. They are priceless!
