Reagan Democrats?

Posted By on Thu, May 1, 2008 at 6:10 PM

This does not bode well for fall if, as still expected, Obama is the nominee.

And if you want some poll crunching, Obamaist Kos analyzes Obama-Clinton strengths and weaknesses in Kerry states and the big three -- Pa., Ohio and Fla. Pitfalls for both, Kos notes, though he sticks with Obama.

If I may say again: this is why the nomination shouldn't be decided simply by who's ahead in pledged delegates. There are many factors to consider. The deciding delegates may well decide that those factors favor Obama. (An influential one from Washington (he formerly backed Clinton), with roots in Indiana, did just that today.) But let's play out the primaries and the flavor-of-the-day hot button story, take a deep breath and then let the final delegates decide based on ALL the evidence.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
