Well, that was a surprise:
Amazingly close in Indiana. Two percentage point win by Clinton in what was supposed to be unfavorable terrain for Obama
. It will be interesting to learn if Hillary's summer Gas Tax Holiday pitch boomeranged. And there will be speculation that if Jeremiah Wright hadn't been in the news, then Obama would have won Indiana and wrapped up the race.
What next for Clinton? Probably a renewed emphasis on Florida and Michigan.
That won't be pretty.
It's over, Quiddity. He "wrapped up" the race last night. She was supposed to blow him out of the water in Indiana, and pull off an upset in N.C. Didn't come close to either. Subtract the 21,000 "Operation Chaos" votes for Clinton, and he wins Indiana.
Obama sealed the deal months ago, but the Chicken Littles were too short-sighted and panicky to notice it, too heavily influenced by the verbal diarrhea squirting from the mouths of the corporate media gasbags to see the obvious.
He's the real deal. Billary couldn't stop him with the most vicious of Rovian tactics; the GOP will do no better. Americans can see that it's either a new beginning with Obama or a third term for George Bush. The choice is clear.
