On election night he almost always holds his rally in the state with the next primary.
This might be hard to wrap your head around, but not only doesn't he have to be in PA while they count the votes, he can actually congratulate Hillary via a device called a telephone without being in the same state.
All I asked is how can someone outspend their opponent into the ground and still lose?
You really don't understand that someone can start out so far behind in a State they can't catch up, even when they outspend and outcampaign their opponent? It's not that complicated a concept, so I don't think your question is as honest or as unloaded as you are now making it out to be.
Obama outspends her by 300%-500% on media in PA; has mega-weeks to campaign (supposedly "his strong suit") and still loses a bellweather, northern state?
Obama's got a problem, and it's his problem.
First, Obama has done much better in states Hillary is expected to win than she has done in states he's expected to win.
Second... For either candidate, you can't use the primary results to forcast GE results.
Hillary is a strong candidate who started with huge advantages in PA. Obama will do well to lose by less than 10 pts even with all the money he's spent, but either candidate will beat McCain in the GE.
I've been writing about Hillary for nearly a year now. And during that time people just can't understand why I'm so passionate about Hillary and her herstoric run for the White House. They question my sincerity.
Thanks for telling this very personal story. It does shed light on your very passionate support for Hillary.
I'm an Obama supporter but can understand why so many support Hillary, and support her with vigor. She's a strong candidate and would make a fine President.
I would leave you with a final thought. I hesitate to say this here since your diary, this time at least, was 100% positive. Please try to understand why some are very offended when perceived cheap shots are taken against Obama; try to understand that people are as passionate about his candidacy as you are for Hillary's.
They'll be posting in droves. Posting about how they are either not voting or voting for McCain and it's all Obama's fault! And after they are banned from MyDD they can start congregating on NoQuarter, Hillary's Bloggers, and Hillaryis44.
Funny how Obama is somehow a loser for not winning in states that Hillary is incredibly strong in even though he always narrows the gap. And Hillary, even though she's never won an Obama stronghold or even narrowed the gap, is the comeback kid for turning her 20+ pt lead into a narrow victory.
I'm predicting a Hillary win by 9 tomorrow. Too bad she needed to win by 20.
