why do you think he is now holding " town home" meetings that Hillary is so good at
if he does not get the white blue collar voter that a lot of folks like to put down
he will never be elected
it is the same loopey statement he made when he laughed and said
"who needs Fla"
you do, stupid!!
He does not need Florida. He needs all the states that Kerry won plus one state.

The flawed judgment of this group should be shunned during election years.
I agree. He was never going to get the Archie Bunker vote and he should waste no time on it. Hillary would not get it in November either.

Woot Hillary

Hillary Clinton has propsed a gas tax holiday... and Barack Obama replied to this proposel saying she is using this for a political argument, and its washington politics... making it seem like a problem was solve but it havent. Well from what I understand this was a short term solution... while she will be working on the long term. From what I also understand Obama voted on a similar gas tax holiday in IL, when he was senator. So did he vote on this holiday for his political reasons, and for his washington politics ( well I dont want to jump to conclusions )? I dont know...

Again I think Hillary Clinton proposed this for a short term fix, while she will be working on a long term solution.
I support Hillary Clinton

Woot Hillary

I am really sick and tired of hearing about Obama's problems with the white working class voters. How about asking Hillary what she is going to do to win the black vote and the young vote and the educated/college degree type people vote. It's the same thing in the media EVERY SINGLE DAY but the media seems to forget who is winning so Obama must have a base that is holding strong for him or who would not be winning. She can keep talking about the big states until she is blue in the face. If she only gets 10% of the black vote, she will not win the General Election so she has problems of her own.

Even of the "working class" white males, I suspect he will do well among the union members. That plus the black and 60+% of the Hispanic vote should be enough.
LOL..wow, liberals have a label for everyone, don't they? For everyone's benefit, support your claim that working class males are a small minority and shrinking everyday. Also, 60% of the Hispanic vote? That would be a big surprise in the primary....but it won't happen in the general election..

Hispanics (except Cubans) are mostly Democrat. Republicans never poll more than 40% of that vote. The primary is over and Obama has won it for all practical purposes. I am talking about McCain vs Obama.

Working class WHITE males. Because most white males do not do manual labour anymore. Those that do tend to be union craft people.
