  •  And BTW here is how Obama gets cross-overs (0+ / 0-)

    by promising them their primary vote for him will get rid of Hillary and will be "free" (no impact on the Republican result).   This from his campaign:

    Attention All Texas Republicans and Independents!!

    On March 4th, Texas Republicans and Independents will have an opportunity to end Hillary Clinton’s (and Bill’s) presidential ambitions once and for all!
    Since Texas has on open primary, Republicans and Independents should sign in at their polling place and request a Democratic ballot. They should then vote for Barack Obama. Even James Carville admits that if Hillary loses Texas, “she’s done!” Republicans can help make this a reality!!! Just think, no more Clintons in the White House!

    Voting Democratic this one time will have NO effect on your ability to vote in the next Republican primary or obviously on your vote in November. Since John McCain has the Republican nomination locked up, voting for McCain or Huckabee at this point will have no effect on the outcome on the Republican side.

    Nice tactics.

    •  Well (0+ / 0-)

      It's hard to argue with an unattributed comment.  To get back on topic, I fail to see how this is intimidating anyone at a caucus, even if true.  

      Look, the "caucus thugs" story was something the Clinton people came up with when they were trying to get their legs back under them after Iowa.  If anything, the Clinton campaign was responsible for more of the dirty tricks in Nevada.  

      Then it was an excuse for her failure to sweep the field on Super Tuesday.  After her series of crushing defeats in February primaries, they don't even bother with this illusory excuse anymore.
