  •  This is why news outlets use state-by-state polls (3+ / 0-)

    because Obama is ahead of Hillary and McCain in the national polls quite consistently since Wright's comments first hit all of the news channels.

    •  WARNING to OBAMA CREW (0+ / 0-)

      Hillary is pounding Obama with smear to get his negative up. And it is working. Obama is trying to play nice and not having a plan to keep his negative low.

      This is super delegate game! Hillary is showing them Obama is damaged beyond repair and that only Hillary can win.

      BE VERY ALERT!!  Obama has to react NOW!

        You are undoubtedly correct that is what HRC's intentions are.  But I think that you are jumping the gun in terms of a couple of things...

        First, He seems to be surviving this quite well.  The latest respectable press has been, almost unanimously, positive.  This poll shows that he may be weathering this without too great of a hit.

        Second, Obama's campaign crew are brilliant and, I believe, up to the task.  

        Third, superdelegates...no one knows where many of them are at.  At the same time, these are professional politicians and I'm sure that many of them realize what Obama brings to the Dems.

        Obama is playing it his way.  If he's got the right stuff, it's going to work.  I believe he does have the right stuff.

          That's Hillary target. And Hillary might get 10-15% at PA Which means Hillary very much can pull the scheme with some strong arm pulling.

          •  I've just posted an update to a new NY TImes... (0+ / 0-)

            article.  If I read it, the editorial and other NY Times articles correctly, it looks like things might be souring even as we speak for HRC and staff.  I've said this before, but this article reads more like something from Kos himself.

              We are sitting here talking as if the game is "fair", but it is not. It is rigged against Obama.

              So the burden is on him to be more alert.

              Clinton has the machine, that's why she got so many breaks despite consistently losing.

              Superdelegates are as corrupt as any other politicians. I don't buy a bit that they are this "activists" for the best of bla bla bla....

              THEY WILL go to the highest bidder if they see things are going good for them.
