Awaiting Results: Obama and McCain Capitalize on DC

Obama and McCain are projected to take the top slots in the DC primary, marking a triple win for each candidate in today's contests. In other news, and perhaps fallout from Hillary Clinton's run of losses lately, Clinton's Deputy Campaign Manager Mike Henry, has just stepped aside.

mandy - it was nasty around here yesterday, wasn't it? I hope your head is doing better! The other thing is that Hillary is a very polarizing figure to most - you either love her or you hate her. And most people have already made up their minds as to what they think about her. Whereas Obama seems to be gaining momentum, rally support, and people are interested in learning more about him. And Obama can court some indepent voters away from McCain as well. I've read several things that said he stands a better chance against McCain because he's not as polarizing.

I hope your head feels better! That doesn't sound like fun at all. The superdelegates can change their minds. They aren't locked into their endorsements. I have read that some are saying that they will vote for who ever ends up winning the votes from the states, even if they originally supported another candidate. I think there would be massive unrest if the super delegates over turned the votes of the citizens.

I feel the need to speak up as a Hillary supporter. I'm really sad that she didn't do well. I also think she will do a MUCH better job against McCain than Obama. Think of it. The Republicans message if it is Hillary will be, "Oh, the woes. You will be voting for the evil Hillary if you don't vote for McCain." but if it's Barack, their message will be, "You are going to vote for a kid with no experience over a maverick war veteran, really?" I think the second is a stronger message, so as a Democrat, I'm really sad. (FYI: I live in Virginia in a DC suburb and was walking home from the metro to vote yesterday, slipped on ice, and hit my head on the sidewalk. Admittedly, I didn't vote b/c my head was bleeding and I figured taking care of myself was more important than one vote. Quite a mess.)

Jillness - the super delegates can change their mind?? How does that work? I'll be honest this is the first primary race I've paid any attention to - my second presidential election as a voter, so that's not too bad - but I think the super delegates might be in part because at that time Obama's campaign hadn't caught fire yet like it has now. I'm surprised but really excited by all this!

He has a lot more pledged delegates, AND he leads even with super delegates factored in. Of course, the super delegates can always change their minds. They were saying last night that Hillary needs to win by 60% or more in Ohio and Texas to stay in the game. So far she only has 60% from one state (Arkansas). Obama has received over 60% or more in at least 10 states (not including last night).

That's great! Go Obama! Does anyone know how many delegates does he have now and how many does Hillary have?

I am so happy that he is doing so well! I think the more people get to know about him, the more they understand what makes him such an amazing candidate. Go Obama!

On MSNBC, a commentator said that "the depth and breadth of his victories" is pretty astounding. It kind of irritates me that they are surprised that he got the majority of the white vote under 60. I think it makes a better dramatic twist to make it seem as if all of a sudden white people are voting for him, but what about Iowa, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Delaware, Maine, Connecticut, Nebraska, Minnesota, Alaska, Kansas, and North Dakota. Hopefully now the pundits will realize that race doesn't matter so we can move on from that discussion. I am so tired of "vying to be the first_______president" behind both Hillary and Obama's names. It is in the majority of campaign stories I read on major news sites.
