Hillary's Rudy Strategy: She Will Lose March

For Hillary To Lose March

Rudy had a strategy. He was going to ignore the early states, and then he was going to win big in Florida, and then who could possibly stop Rudy?

We all know how that played out.

Now Hillary has a strategy. It is called the calendar has only 11 months to it. She is going to ignore the states this month.

Polls show her leading in OH, TX, PA. But then she was doing 10-50 or so in California and similary in New York for most of 2007. The end tally had Obama losing CA only by 10 points.

How can you lose 10 states in a row and still carry March 4? Beats me. Not gonna happen.

The superdelegates, if they are in the business of democracy, are just going to do the will of the people and get behind the candidate who won the most votes, the most states, and the most regular delegates. They can't go against that democratic current.

Sexist Bill

A few days back Bill Clinton went on record saying if Hillary is president he will "talk her through everything." Granted this guy is super gifted politically, but that is sexist talk. There are all these women all across America, and especially in California, who are salivating at the prospect of a first woman president, and Bill Clinton is saying he will do her job on her behalf. Women, take notice, this man is out to steal.

All States Count

At some level I am glad this has been such a drawn out process. That is the democratic way. This year most states will have had a say. And that will make us strong for the fall contest.

Michigan, Florida, Nevada

The white media routinely says the Clintons won Michigan, Florida and Nevada. Barack won Nevada. This is a contest for delegates, and Barack won more delegates in Nevada. And there were no contests in Michigan and Florida.

The white media has made a leap from calling Barack Osama last spring. This spring they are giving victories to his opponent that she can not claim.

Looks Like We Did Not Carry NYC

Looks like we only carried Cornell, Ithaca. Otherwise Hillary carried the rest of the state. Fair enough. We did better in Illinois. I was thinking we might have done well in parts of the city.

I don't begrudge Hillary her home state success.
