    Ohio is too racist; hard working white Hillary voters just don't "feel comfortable" with Obama, blah, blah, blah - A 3 point Ohio victory would sit just fine with me.

    •  I want Ohio mainly because of this (6+ / 0-)

      Hearing David Gregory and his ilk spew this sort of crap on an endless basis has made me want to smack the side of my TV more than once. Obama winning Ohio would be twice as sweet simply to see them try to wrap their brains around the notion that their crusty old stereotypes were flat out wrong.

        ..for Obama. We get some negative responses, but a few more positive ones. We're in Appalachian Ohio, stereotyped as ignorant and racist. Things are looking very hopeful here.

        Oh yeah, my friend is a registered Republican. McCain has lost the reasonable people in his own party.

        Another OWW4O (thanks, Cyber Kat!)
