Clinton Turns to GOP Fearmongering

On: February 29th, 2008 at 10:57 am | Number of Comments » 1

In another sign of desperation, Hillary Clinton has turned to a “soft” version of the insidious fearmongering (terrorist will get you if you don’t vote for me) ads that the GOP ran against Kerry in ’04. Of course, predictably, she uses children as the target of terror (“in a dangerous world”) and the concerned mother […]

Hooray for Mary Liedtke

After Obama’s convincing victory in the Wisconsin primary yesterday, it was nice to read that his 17 points over Clinton was aided by support from two of her strongest sectors: women and union families. Even women who were initially Clinton supporters, such as Mary Liedtke quoted here in the NY Times, switched. May more women […]

McCain v. Dems II

Again, and even more startling in contrast, the latest SurveyUSA head-to-head poll via DailyKos, this time for the important swing states of Virginia and Iowa, has Obama cruising and Clinton bruising: Given this kind of data about Clinton’s odds v. McCain, I think she got the order wrong in the speech she gave tonight: “Both Senator Obama […]

After having moved from my old place to Sara’s last spring I shut down Radio Go Go Go Ya! for fear of sucking too much bandwidth between it and Vonage and two computers. However, it seems as if Comcast has widened the band enough now so that I can rebroadcast without hiccups. It’ll continue to […]

Obama’s leadership skills “masterful”

That’s the word from Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign manager, David Wilhelm, who just endorsed Obama in his important home state of Ohio. More importantly, Wilhelm is also a superdelegate. From his announcement this afternoon, via Daily Kos: David Wilhelm, who was Bill Clinton’s campaign chairman in 1992, has endorsed Senator Barack Obama for president. Mr. Wilhelm […]

McCain v. Dems

On: February 11th, 2008 at 3:01 pm | Number of Comments » 2

With Obama’s sweep of caucuses in Washington, Maine, Louisiana, and Nebraska this weekend and position to sweep D.C., Virginia, and Maryland tomorrow, and proven multi-geographical and multi-demographic strength from Super Tuesday, it should be no wonder that he is currently polling stronger against McCain than Clinton is. That gladdens me, unless of course Clinton is our […]

Who needs paid political strategists?

A professional political strategist on NPR states the obvious about McCain & Co. dying to have Clinton to run against: I should be getting paid for such insights….

As I thought…

A new Time Magazine poll backs up my #6 reason for voting for Obama (this is courtesy of Taegan Goddard’s most excellent Political Wire): “A new Time magazine poll compares potential general election match ups: Obama 48%, McCain 41% Clinton 46%, McCain 46% According to the poll director, the difference is that “independents tilt toward […]
