If Obama is such hot stuff, then why can't he close the deal?
He has more money than Hillary, and he has supporters willing to run in front of him picking up coffee cups like Halle Berry and a wife that is really, really proud, and folks like Christ Matthews with chills running up his leg when he speaks, so what can't he win?? What is wrong with him?

He can't win b/c the race isn't over. What's your point? The race will be over when the Democratic convention comes and a decision is made - I don't think I'd have to state the obvious - or did I.

Hopefully, he can't and won't win because he is not a viable candidate. And still in the "race", because The Hill is such an objectionable character herself. So there is noone qualified, he is just villing a void.

Because the votes that truly count, the superdelegates, are waiting to see how he does in the big states. If he can't win a majority of white and independent voters in those states, no way can he win the general.

So far, Hill&Bill have won the big swing states.

His supporters are the kook-left, the young kook-left, and the black vote.

Ah... seems to me that he IS winning, the race is just not done yet.

What's your point - that the race is close?
No suprise there.
The Clintons have been the "superstars" of the Democratic party for quite a few years now and Hillary has a lot of fans.

The race will be over when the all the states have had their primaries and one candidate or the other concedes.

It's as simple as that.

Big States like Texas and Ohio where between both 214,000 Republican voted for Hillary because they want her to go up against their McCain. They won't vote for Hillary in the General. Many have stated that they only voted for her in the Primary so that McCain could and would beat her in the General. So take away those votes and who really won the big States. NOT HILLARY

Has anyone contacted everyone that voted to be sure this is the case?

Yup, I live in Texas, and I know plenty of people who voted for Hillary because they believe McCain can beat her.

Plenty is not 214,000.

No way to verify/confirm that was the intenton of the voters.

Because he is a far left liberal loon. I think a Texas Armadillo could bet him.
