Obama wins Georgia Primary

Feburary 5, 2008

WASHINGTON (AP) -- John McCain has captured a string of primaries
along the East Coast and in Illinois, as he tries to take command
of the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
In the Democratic contests, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack
Obama are each the winner of the state they represent in the
Senate.
McCain's victories include New Jersey, Connecticut and Delaware.
He wins all 97 delegates at stake in the three states.
In addition to New York, Clinton won in Massachusetts, Oklahoma,
Tennessee and Arkansas, where she served as first lady for more
than a decade.
Obama won in Georgia and Delaware in addition to Illinois.
There are victories for Republican Mike Huckabee in Alabama and
his home state of Arkansas as he tries to keep his campaign alive.
He also won the West Virginia convention.
Mitt Romney won in Massachusetts, where he served as governor.
Interviews with voters at polling places indicate that Clinton
has just a slight edge among women and white voters. They're both
groups that she had won handily in earlier contests. Obama is
getting the overwhelming majority of votes cast by blacks.
The polls indicate that Clinton is getting the votes of about
six in ten Hispanics.

    In all my life I have never witnessed such press bias in favor of a politician as towards Obama. When does the honeymoon end and he's actually looked at in terms of what he stands for; what impact his promises will have; his background; his families background; his moral and religious beliefs and practices, etc. Why is there such fear by everyone in exploring Obama as close as others? At least with Hillary you know what you're getting...someone who has successfully weathered every attack; someone who spells out what her plans are in specific terms; someone saavy enough to survive and thrive in the shark nest politics in Washington. Also, I have never in my life seen such a deliberate series of attacks as has been directed by the media on the Clintons. The old boy power stucture must really fear Hillary. Likewise, the Republicans rejoice at Obama's success. I am one Democrat who will bite my tongue and pull the other parties lever if Obama is my Democratic choice
