If the press scrutiny Obama faced this last week had been occurring for the last two months the delegate count today would be an entirely different story.
Fortunately, when we reach the convention in August we will have the benefit of super delegates who can vote to reflect the realities there in August, and the Democratic party won't have to settle for the candidate who was able to bamboozle the most delegates out of the voters -- aided by a complacent and fawning press.
The Rezko scandal will have run its course -- and it can be expected that more examples of Obama ineptitude will hit the front pages. What proved out this week, and the voters saw it and it was reflected in last night's results, is that (1) Obambi has not been honest with the American people, and (2) in the face of adversity and in crisis, Obama doesn't hold up well. Seeing him running away from the press as he did here clearly underscores the extent to which this man is not strong in a crisis.
Thanks to the super delegate structure the best candidate will emerge as out nominee, not the best poseur who scammed the most delegates out of the voters with rhetoric and plagiarised speeches.
It's a whole new ballgame.
The bottom line... if Clinton can beat Obama when he's outspending her 2-1 and has twice the volunteers -- if Hillary can overcome those odds, she'll decimate McCain in the national election, and sweep in filibuster-proof majorities in Congress.
It's time to eject the Republicans from Washington, not sit down and make deals with them.
