Things are as they were

Before yesterday's primaries:
  • Senator Clinton led in the popular vote; Senator Obama in pledged delegates.
  • Superdelegates could not actually bind themselves to either candidate because the only way to for an automatic delegate to bind himself or herself is via a ballot at the Party convention.
  • Neither Senator Clinton nor Senator Obama could win the nomination on the first ballot based on the non-automatic delegates either has won to date.
  • The status of Michigan and Florida was not conclusively settled.
  • Senator Clinton polls as more likely to beat Senator McCain in November.
After yesterday's primaries:
  • All of the above stand.
So does Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. Still my choice for the Democratic nomination this year in Denver.

We need to speak in one loud voice in order to get her that nomination.
Sending your thoughts to the website is the start of that.

Is it over?
Everyone is talking like it is..I mean the news and .......(Hillary is more or less resting up for her next move)

I feel like someone punched me in the head.

Great job in South Dakota Hillary.
10 point win while being 10 points behind...marvelous comeback. Simply marvelous.

Is it TOO LATE?

'Feels like Super Tuesday when we found out the caucuses were being bamboozled.

I can't believe the narcissism of that man...

unbelievable. He is taking America down to a level of thuggary. He has no conscience. He thinks Hillary owes him her base voters now and her stumping for him. unbelievable.

He is not going to get away wtih this.

Heidi:

I enjoy reading your blog but some of these posts - such as stating that Obama is bringing the country to a level of "thuggary" are simply toxic and are clearly not up to the level of civility you strive for. That statement is not supported by any facts and should not be posted.

They taint the blog and Senator Clinton.

YES. As always, Heidi Li, states with clariy and reason what last night means. For now, share your thoughts at Hillary's new web site and write your states superdelegatesl...thanking them for supporting Hillary if they don't, stating the facts (since the MSM has demonstrated they're incapable of such) of popular vote, swing states, etc....our work is not done and for that I am grateful.

Thanks, Heidi. I appreciate your intelligent, impassioned, and thoughtful support and analysis. I am so happy to have been able to watch Hillary through the past months with her grace and courage, and one of the best things that has come from her campaign is a greater sense of community with women across the nation. Thanks for your work. I donated through your link:
